Join us at the 25th Annual Open Hangar Days and participate in the first-ever Cleco Contest at the Zenith factory! Check out the above video and watch Zenith staff, Roger Dubbert and Steve Oppenlander, go head to head to compete against one another. 

The cleco contest at the Open Hangar Days event will be a little different than shown in the practice video. There will still be head to head match up between two participants at a time, but there will be a timer set at one minute and the winner of the heat will be the person who gets the most clecos in within the one minute time frame. The only time we will record who removes them the fastest is if there is a tie in the amount of clecos the participants put in and removing them will be our tie breaker. 

The name of the winner of each heat will be written on the tally board showing how many clecos they put in within the one minute time limit. We will take the top four participants and they will compete for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th places.

There are great prizes to win this year at Open Hangar Days 2016 for the Cleco Contest, STOL Competition, Flour Bombing Contest, and the Zenith Aircraft Show, along with a few awesome door prizes. Come and join us on Friday, September 23 and Saturday, September 24, 2016 to participate in all of the fun activities!
