  >Dear Salvadori:
>
>After careful consideration lasting several hours at the last board meeting,
>we her by grant your Wishes No. 1, No. 2, No. 3, and No. 5, with action on
>No. 4 referred to committee for further review.  It is obvious that you and
>your constituents have gone to great lengths to generate the magnificent
>Wish List, which furthers aerobatics the world over.  We, the Shadow Board
>of Directors, would appreciate a detailed and analytical evaluation of the
>"Before" and "After" results.  Conditions relating to the Wish List granting
>are found below.  The contests are from this time forward to be considered
>pilot grading systems with two choices available at the current time.  The
>first of these is the "Crowd Pleaser" contest.  The second is the "Technical
>Pilot Performance" contest.  Your Wishes No. 1 through No. 5, excepting No.
>4 are now part of the first aforementioned "Crowd Pleaser" contest category.
>

>Wish No. 1      No More Boundary Judges
>                        This wish is hereby granted under the Fond du Lac
>Cup style contest which is an IAC sanctioned event in every respect.  There
>are NO boundary judge requirements whatsoever.
>
>Wish No. 2      Simplify Box
>                        This wish is hereby granted under the Fond du Lac
>Cup style contest which is an IAC sanctioned event in every respect.  There
>is NO box at all with, of course, no markers or boundary judges at all.
>
>Wish No. 3      Change Bauer
>                        This wish is hereby granted under Fond du Lac Cup
>style contest which is an IAC sanctioned event in every respect.  The judges
>are a "near random" combination of local political officials (to aid in
>crowd draw and ego involvement) who only hold up score cards in a similar
>fashion to World ice skating events.  Here, it is recommended that grading
>judges (whomever they may be) use something akin to the CIVA blue book for
>shapes, styles, and aggressive behavior.
>
>Wish No. 4      Include 4 Minute Freestyles, Exclude Unknowns
>                        The admitted difficulty which was encountered
>regarding your request for four minute programs found it's root in the very
>large freedom granted in the Fond du Lac Cup style contest for the pilot to
>pick at random 2 out of 3 maneuvers and not notify the judges as to what
>these might be.  Of course, such lack of notification brought out judging
>difficulty which has been solved by just not judging such figures at all.
>They are simply used as "turnaround maneuvers" or "crowd pleasers".  
>
>Wish No 5.      Shorten Contests        
>                        The desire, understood and appreciated by all, to
>limit the boring sameness of the "Technical Pilot Performance" contest, has
>been admirably addressed by the Fond du Lac Cup style contest.  We just
>invite a few of our friends and exclude everybody else thus making the
>contest the perfect length to please the crowd!
