The website for the 2015 Canadian National Soaring Championships is now live at http://2015canadiannationalsoaringcontest.ca/. The website provides additional information on the contest and also provides instructions for registration. Any pilots that registered prior to February 28 will need to re-register as the forwarding e-mail address was incorrect which prevent registrations from being received.
