  A quick reminder to everyone of the upcoming Hill Country Hammerfest contest to 
be held in Llano, TX on 8-10 August.  For those of you planning on attending, 
you should make your hotel reservations ASAP as there is a National drag boat 
race being held the same weekend in nearby Marble Falls, and hotel rooms in the 
area are filling up quickly.  The contest headquarters hotel (Hill Country 
Suites) is already full.  Hope to see you there!

BTW- Of possible interest to some, the local FAA folks have graciously given 
notification that they will be in attendance at the contest, at least on Friday.

The original contest announcement follows this note.
