2019 Region 2 - Final Report

This year Mifflin was blessed with the best week of soaring weather so far this season.  The four contest days were mostly ridge, but there was also some thermal flying including on the no-contest days.  We will take it!

Thanks to the pilots, crews, and volunteers for a safe and successful contest.




18m: First - John Seymour [SM], Second - Tim Welles [W3], Third - John Murray [LX]

15m: First - Sean Murphy [XC], Second - Glen Kelley [91], Third - Shane Neitzey [9Y]

Sports: First - Heinz Weissenbuehler [HW], Second - Jake Barnes [PP], Third - Roman Michalowski [U]


T8 Evan Ludeman's 1000K flight on Friday Day 3 earned him the Mifflin Trophy for the longest (handicapped) distance flown during the contest, 566.20 miles.  We suspect he will hold the top spot among Mifflin Trophy winners for years to come!
