#HeavierOutBC CONTEST CLOSES OCTOBER 1st, 2020
In 2018 a group of pilots located in Nevada and Utah called The Flying Cowboys began a campaign called #HeavierOut. The idea was to leave remote areas heavier than they arrived by hauling out any garbage that they came across in the backcountry. Inspired by The Flying Cowboys, the BCGA is bringing the #HeavierOutBC campaign to British Columbia.
For the next year we will run the #HeavierOutBC contest. The rules are simple and the only tools you need are a few spare garbage bags in your flight bag. If you are flying to a remote area, airstrip, beach or gravel bar and find any garbage, trash or material that shouldn't be there simply bag it up, fly it out and dispose of it properly, always respecting your weight and balance limitations of course!
Take a picture of the garbage with your aircraft and email it to us and post it to Facebook or Instagram if you wish with the Hashtag #HeavierOutBC and be entered into the draw for Avgas. The only requirement for an entry is the emailed photo, not the Facebook or Instagram Post.
First Prize: $300 Avgas Voucher
Second Prize: $200 Avgas Voucher
Third Prize: $100 BCGA Store Credit
