> I am an active competitor, national judge and aerobatic flight

> season and plan on attending at least four more and contest directing
> one of those.  Of the four I've attended, I competed at three of them in

> three, I embarrassed myself at one, finishing next to last after three
> zeros.  I won one, and placed second at the other.  At all four of them
> I actively judged categories other than the one in which I flew.  In

> against whom I am running.
> This active participation in our sport is the key to my platform in
> running for the board.  I feel strongly that you should be represented
> by people who are active participants in the various aspects of our
> sport.  I represent just such a person.  I believe that the real
> feedback on all aspects of the club is verbalized from the heart by the
> participants at our various events.  This verbalization needs to be
> consolidated and taken back to the board room in the form of action.
> I am doing just that with the rule change proposal for alternate
> sequences to be used in conditions with ceilings lower than the
> currently specified 3500 feet.  This proposal will be given extensive
> coverage in the July issue of Sport Aerobatics.  The point is that this
> proposal was not my original idea, but resulted in listening to a lot of
> others with suggestions that began with phrases such as: why don't they,
> or why doesn't the board, etc., etc.  I listened to all those ideas
> about how we could fly in somewhat lower ceilings, and consolidated all
> those great ideas into one workable rule change.  I then formally
> proposed it to the rules committee and then to the board.  It is a lot
> of work, but it is the kind of grass roots representation, leading to
> action in the board room, that I feel I can bring to the board.  But
> only if elected.
> Other information with regard to my principles can be read about in the
> June issue of Sport Aerobatics.  Please note the interview in
> Competition News and the Biography later in the issue.  
> If you would like to be heard, or hear more from me, please feel free to
> communicate with me one-on-one directly at 319-377-1425 or e-mail at the
> above address.
> In conclusion, if you agree with me, then I ask for, appreciate, and
> thank you for your vote.
