So the comp committee was able to find a new venue and dates for the 2014 Paragliding Nationals. It will now be held in Yamaska, QC, August 9-16.

August 9 will be the official practice day.
Task days are August 10-16.
Awards August 16.

The website is https://sites.google.com/site/2014pgnats
It will be activated shortly with the dates, registration, and other info.
A Facebook page is also being set up and will be announced when ready.

The team:
Organizer: Eric Olivier
Score keeper: Patrick Dupuis
Meet Director: Bernard Charland
Launch director: TBD
Safety: TBD
Logistics: Irena Purschke

Launches are ~1000-1150' ASL.
Launches are located all around the mountain with sites south, west, north and east.
There are two clubs on the mountain and one school/shop for last minute equipment and supplies.

Sanctioning: This event will be HPAC and FAI cat 2 sanctioned.

Pilot’s registration: Registration will be at the above website with a max limit of 75 pilots.

Fees: The registration fee will be $275 Cdn.

Insurance: All pilots will be required to have valid HPAC insurance to attend the meet.

I apologize for the length of time it took to nail down a new venue, but it's been hard to chase down potential event organizers and volunteers who have been traveling over the winter. I would also like to express my thanks to the competition committee for their assistance in sorting things out!

Nicole
