Fraser Valley XC Series

FVXC 2009

The FVXC Series is an informal competition for both HG and PG pilots.

Dates:   The FVXC Series will run on just 2 weekends, one in the Fraser Valley, and one in Pemberton:


Weekend 1:  May 2 - 3

       "       2:  May 16 - 17

NO Rain / Weather Weekend!


Format:   There are no set open or close launch windows, start times, or a specific task.  Pilots will launch when they want, fly whatever course they desire (similar to the Willi Muller XC Challenge), and then submit their GPS for scoring at the end of the day.  Scoring will be by CompeGPS optimization.  By this scoring system, FAI triangles and out-and-returns are scored with more points than open distance flights. The point is to fly a course that maximizes your points for the day, taking into account the weather conditions, amount of flying time available, etc. you have for your flight.  Multiple flights from the designated daily launch are allowed (ie. reflights are OK).  However only your 1 BEST flight per day will count for scoring. As well, only your 3 BEST flights over the 4 days will count. So if you miss a day due to other commitments, you still have a chance to win!

Daily launch venue TBA the morning of each competition day, via the West Coast Soaring Club general forum.   Flying sites will be in the Fraser Valley, most likely Mount Woodside or Lower Bridal Falls.   All pilot meeting locations and times, daily information, download locations, etc, will be announced via the WCSC general forum.

Pilots are responsible for their own transportation up the mountain, and for their own retrieves.  The meet/safety frequency will be 146.415 MHz, unless otherwise indicated.

Both hanggliders and paragliders will compete on the same days, but each will compete in their own division.   At the end of the 4 days the Series champions (1st, 2nd, 3rd) for both divisions will be announced.   Winners are decided based on their cumulative scores from their best 3 flights (not 4) over all competition days.

Requirements:   HPAC insurance, WCSC membership (temporary memberships available), Woodside LZ pass (for Woodside only, temporary passes available), and compatible GPS (Garmin preferrably).  A GPS is required.   Download cables will be supplied for Garmin models.  Pilots using a non-Garmin GPS must supply their own download cable.


Entry fee:   This year, you will have the choice of paying up front ($15.00 CAD for all 4 days), or paying by the day ($5/day for the first 3 days, and your 4th day is free). This will allow pilots who only want to fly 1 weekend, or fewer days, to spend less than those wanting to fly all 4 days. The money collected will go towards prizes, and the Canadian World Teams for 2009.

Prizes:   Prizes will be given for the following categories: HG Open Class (all types), HG Sport Class (King-posted only), PG Open Class (all types), and PG Sport Class (DHV 1-2 and below). Nature of prizes will be determined by number of entrants and entry fees collected.

Registration:   To register, please email the club's Comp directorl Kent Rodler.

Online Payment:   Payment can be made in person on a competition day, at a club meeting, or online via Paypal.  Click here for the FVXC Payment page.

There will be a "Start of the Year" party the first weekend of the meet (when both HG and PG series kick off).  For more information, click here.
