Only a few days to go till registration opens…
The Open Race has 80 slots available and is sanctioned by USHPA as part of the U.S. Championship series. So you can expect to be flying with some of the top pilots in the U.S. The Open race also sanctioned by FAI with 20 of the 80 total slots reserved for foreign pilots until two weeks before the event. So you may not want to delay registering and confirming you spot with a payment.
The Sprint Race has 80 slots available. The tasks are a bit shorter in this race but this fun competition can be intense at times with lots of experienced pilots flying wings with similar performance. Its a great way to learn racing in a bit less demanding environment than the Open Race
The SuperClinic has 20 slots available with world class instruction from Kari Castle and Ken Hudonjorgensen. Pilots in this clinic flying in this event can often get more airtime than those flying in the race events while improving their thermalling and XC skills.
Something new this year will be Applegate Open Demo Days scheduled for June 12-14. Running for three days ahead of the Applegate Open it will give pilots a chance to get some hands on experience with a large number of products. As I write this we are expecting at least 6 exhibitors with the following brands represented: Ozone, Gin, Advance, UP, Niviuk, Nova, Phi, Level, Flow, Kortel, Woody Valley, Flymaster, and High Adventure. More to come with updates on the website.
