Good question.

You need all the normal stuff.  As we noted in the original posting, the
Bluff will be operated right out of the red book as though it were a normal
contest.  This is for three reasons:

1.  It's easier.  We don't really have any need nor desire to rewrite all the
procedural stuff, we just want to expand our options on how to have fun.

2.  It provides a backbone of safety related procedures.  Our normal contest
rules appear to be doing a good job of providing a safe operating
environment.  Any changes at this point seem unwise.

3.  The waiver covering the airspace for the bluff is the same one covering
the later Lone Star Regional.  This waiver was written under the new
"standardized" guidelines, and actually specifies that the CD is responsible
for insuring that everyone is licensed, etc.

Everyone please come prepared as you would for a standard contest.

Anyone submitting a figure for the second unknown should have it drawn and
the catalog numbers written down with K values noted.  The figures must be
among those specified as allowable for your respective category in the Red

See you there.  


PS, I was out practicing the unknown this weekend, and won't pose a threat to
any "real entrants".  

PPS.  Just kidding.
