Just a few reminders... The "Bluff" contest will be flown at McGregor Airport, Tx. May 17-18. This is Saturday and Sunday if required to get all three flights, which we fully intend to do. Friday is for practice and qualification. Qualification, you say? Yes. All entrants will be required to present a copy of their (satisfactory) known compulsory scores from a 1997 contest at or above the category they will be entering. If you have not flown in a contest yet this year, you must fly the known compulsory before a designated judge to the same safety standards as would be required in a contest. We will have some limited capability to offer qualification flights on Friday and Saturday on a first-come and/or reservation basis. Please contact me directly to discuss your needs and options here. We want you to compete, but will insist that this requirement is met. Other rule waivers and supplemental rules apply to this contest. They will be available for return E-mail by mid-weekend. The above qualifying rule is the biggie. Please arrive with your two or three favorite maneuvers to submit for the second unknown. It must comply with the unknown rules for your category. (no outside snaps in Intermediate, etc). Phone numbers of motels will be posted this weekend as well, but we recommend the Best Western on Hwy 84 in Waco. Good hot tub. Banquet is at "Our Place", which is superior food, but regretfully, not approved for food fights or other extreme non-bible belt behavior. Tap dancing allowed. Hope to see everyone there. Dr. Sardonicus is preparing the "Bluff" sequences in his secret lab high atop Mount Dallas. Be afraid. Be very afraid. Don Peterson Midlothian, Tx.
