  This is a bad week end for Acro Pilots to attend. There are two big
Mid-west contests that weekend. "The Okie Dust Devil", a five category
contest in Weatherford, and Kenosha, WI  "Great Lakes Aerobatic
Contest", also a five category...
And don't forget the following weekend is "The Salem" contest, Salem
IL...... Volunteers are very welcome....
