[Closed] Plane & Pilot: Colorado River Race @ KASE - 261600ZMAY18

Hello everyone!

Join Plane & Pilot this week as we host an exciting race like no other! We will take off from KASE and follow the beautiful Colorado River up to KGNB, while doing touch & goes at several airports along the way. The ceiling altitude for this event is 8,500 feet MSL, which means you will have to navigate through the Colorado mountains, hills, and even canyons in order to finish the race. We will do this in the fast and agial Cirrus SR22. The first one to land at KGNB wins, so make sure to be as fast and precise as you can. This idea was given to us by @GolferRyan, the winner of our last event! Everyone is welcome! Just post below and we will add you to the list.
