Here is the front page of the February 2007 edition of COPA Flight:

This was a reference to the complete lack of ice at Chateau Montebello
only a week before the Challenger Owners 17th Annual Winter Rendezvous.

Personally I was betting on "splash-in" - my own Challenger was ready to launch on floats!

Fortunately for everyone, I had to mothball my Speedos when Mother Nature decided
at the last minute to co-operate and make the ice runway in front of the Chateau:

The event turned out to be a great success - the Friday night reception was packed,
23 Challengers on skis cavorted under sunny blue skies,
160 aficionados were wined, dined and entertained at the banquet.

People described the atmosphere as a family reunion, for old timers and newbies alike!

The March 2007 edition of COPA Flight contained a complete report with pictures.
Below are still more photos from the event, all but one previously unpublished. Enjoy!

Join us at the next Challenger Owners Winter Rendezvous
and you too will be able to leap tall trees in a single bound!
