Hello! Perhaps some of you who have been around longer than I have can help me out with something. In the past, a trophy was given at the IAC Championships to the hightest placing Sportsman competitor who flew an aircraft under 180 hp. This award was called the A.C. Spark Plug Trophy and was donated by A.C. Spark Plug. At some time in the past this trophy was discontinued. The IAC Policy and Procedures manual (203.2) mentions there was "no funding available" for this trophy and it's status is listed as "Discontinued (Quality)". The trophy was last seen in the IAC building at Oshkosh about 2 years ago. It's whereabouts are now unknown. Can anyone help me locate this trophy? I am interested in collecting any history on this trophy as to when it was awarded and to whom. Would you as members like to see a trophy such as this reincarnated? Does anyone have any ideas for a sponsor for such an award? Please e-mail me any information regarding the history or whereabouts of the A.C. Spark Plug Trophy and any comments you have regarding bringing back such a trophy. Thanks a bunch. Myrna CG Mibus IAC Awards Chairman sxwv56b at prodigy.com
