  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.
