Yes, the Tour is ready to go! The Tour Passport is almost ready to be printed, the Tour Decals and Name Tags are almost ready - many thanks to Joanne and Gail at Leech Printing for all their work! The Tour has been well received which is very encouraging for the group of us who have been organizing it. As you can see the Platinum and Gold sponsorships have been very well supported, well beyond our expectations. We are still actively encouraging sponsorship at the Silver and Bronze levels but we can't take any more Platinum and Gold as the Passports go to printing. The media is showing interest in the Tour - Crossroads this Week right off the bat, the CBC noon show's host Marilyn Mackie, the Brandon Sun, and even Shaw TV. COPA Flight has run several articles which has helped us connect with pilots across Canada, the Tour is open to anyone, not just Manitobans. We're really looking forward to the Rust Remover session in Winnipeg on January 28, see the Events section; this is our first opportunity to get the registration packages out. Hope to see a great turnout!
