Vancouver Island Poker Run
Posted: 23 Jul 2019, 21:24
The Vancouver Island Poker Run will be held Saturday August 10, 2019 4-8 PM Pacific (2300-0300Z). Here are the positions:
- CYCD_FSS (connect as CYCD_TWR, 122.10, Facility TWR, description "Nanaimo Radio") to run Nanaimo FSS (S2 rating preferred).
- CYAZ_RCO (connect as CYZT_TWR, 123.25, Facility TWR, description "Hardy Radio") to run Port Hardy FSS and the Tofino RCO (S2 rating required).
- CAT4_MF (connect as CAT4_MF, 122.80, Facility TWR, description "Qualicum Traffic") to light up the Qualicum MF. An S1 would be fine here but note that you will only provide a live com channel and record event landings - no controlling.
- CBS8_ATF (connect as CBS8_ATF, 123.00, Facility TWR, description "Alberni Traffic") to light up the Port Alberni ATF. Again, an S1 would be fine here but you will only provide a live com channel and record event landings - no controlling.
I'll be running a random card generator, one deck at a time. Call/text me with the pilot's callsign for a card, I'll generate it and record it, you can then advise the pilot what the card is. I'll stream the results on twitch.tv/czvr.Fly IFR or VFR, any aircraft type. Four of the fields are uncontrolled but staffed. Make your calls on the following stations: Alberni traffic (ATF), Qualicum traffic (MF) (don't expect the staff manning these two frequencies to respond), Hardy Radio on the Tofino RCO (RCO) - expect Remote Aerodrome Advisory Service. Nanaimo Radio (FSS), expect FSS advisory services. When you land at a qualifying airport between 2300 and 0300z and are clear of the maneuvering area, ask the staff manning the frequency for a card! Please be patient while the card is generated and relayed to you.
The qualifying aerodromes are CYYJ, CYQQ, CYCD, CYAZ, CAT4, and CBS8. The top three hands will be announced on the frequency.
