The complete results will be posted on the BCPA website following the Awards Ceremony. Afterward, your adjudication sheets will be automatically emailed to you along with a link to the complete results.

If you do not receive the emails containing your adjudication sheets by 11:59 pm Pacific Time April 17, please contact BCPA IT Infrastructure Leader Garth Newlands at it.infrastructure@bcpipers.org and within one day he will manually email your adjudication sheets to you.
