  Hey folks,

Chapter 35 is happy to announce the annual return of the New England 
Aerobatic Championships at Orange, MA.  The box will be open for practice 
beginning early on Thursday, May 16.  Intermediate thru Unlimited will 
begin contest flights on May 17, with the remaining categories first 
contest flights on Saturday May 18.  We'll wrap up on Sunday the 19th.

As with last year, we suggest making hotel reservations early if you can, 
due to a charitable event which we will need to share the local hotels 
with.  Everyone who wanted a room last year did find one, but space was 
somewhat tight.  Here's the contact info for the hotels we've used in the 
past.  We'll get you to and from any of these.  Note that the rate info may 
be out of date.

The Colonial Bed and Breakfast, in Gardner.  They were great about 
cancellations with the rainout in 2000, so probably deserve to be rewarded 
(expect a 48-hour cancellation policy).  About $95 with breakfast, $90.00 
without.  (978) 630-2500.  20 minutes east of the airport on Rte. 2.

The Wachusett Village Inn, in Westminster (same town as the banquet). 
Though I have no experience with the quality of the hotel, they clearly 
want our business.  May get discounted rates in the $100-$120 range. 
  (978) 874-2000.

The Super 8 Motel in Gardner, Mass.  Their cancellation policies took a 
turn for the worse a couple years back, so ask them about it if that's a 
concern to you.  (978) 630-2888.  Standard room rate is $75 for 1 or 2 

Executive Inn	                   Orange, MA    978/544-8864
Quabbin Gateway Motel        Orange, MA    978/544-2986

I'll send out more contest info over the coming weeks.

Hope to see you there!
