The Green Mountain Aerobatic Contest will be held on August 9 - 11 at the Hartness State Airport.  We have added to our list of hotels as there is a conflict  with a meeting of the Telescope Society.  August 9/10/11 is the dark of the moon and no, it will not effect your flying.  Transportation will be available for all hotels. 

Please let me know if you are planning to be at the contest.
