  A few years ago when the One Design airplane was still on the drawing board,
Eoin 'Doc' Harvey an idea.  We aleady had some airplanes that would put
pilots into evenly matched competition from an equipment perspective long
before the new design had been utilized by enough pilots to allow its use in
competition.  Doc proposed that we have a contest using a Cessna 150 Aerobat
for the Basic Category and a Super Decathlon (8KCAB) for Sportsman.  Thus,
the Doc Harvey Original One Design Contest was started.  That was five years
ago.  The late Doc Harvey would be pleased to see that this tradition
continues.

The 1997 edition will be held in Houston on April 19th (20th is a rain day).
 Bring your own airplane or rent either type for the contest.  Some seasoned
competitors have said this is one of the most enjoyable contests they've
attended.  I know of one Unlimited competitor who couldn't spin an Aerobat in
Basic and couldn't even get a patch with stars.  The contest is just good old
fashioned fun....not too serious.

5th Annual Doc Harvey Original One Design Contest
April 19th
Harbican Airport (about 5 miles NW of West Houston Lakeside, IWS).
Briefing at 9:00 am.

Watch this space for more information as the contest date approaces, e-mail
me at AcroDrew at aol.com if you have questions, or watch for the announcement
in Sport Aerobatics.
