Default Two winter contests in AZ

Want to get away from the weather and get a head start with real competitors? We have two back to back pattern contests here in AZ just 10 miles apart. The first contest well be the Superstition Pattern Classic on Feb 24th to25th. The second contest will be the Desert Challenge, Mar 3rd to 4th. Overnight camping (no hookups) will be available at both fields, but advance notice will be needed for the Superstition contest. We have many pattern snowbirds here from other districts and we are looking to having good numbers. Both fields are friendly so you will be able to get some warm up practice. For the Superstition contest information e-mail Gary Switala at [email protected] For the Desert Challenge contest information e-mail John Bentley at [email protected]
