Cleco competition at the Zenith Aircraft Open House 2016

Cleco competition at the Zenith Aircraft Co. Open Hangar Days. This was just one of the many fun activities at this year's event.
Winners of the first-ever Cleco competition (sponsored by Pan-American Took and Wicks aircraft) was Zenith builder Andrey Bezmelnitsyn, followed by James Toothaker, Clay Hollenback and Dave Miller.
Clecos are hole clamps used extensively in light aircraft kit assembly.
