 I have just returned from the Midwest Regional contest at Albert Lea; what a
week-end!  This year, the contest directors pressed for volunteer recognition
and to encourage newcomers to fly in basic.  A patient and generous friend
offered me a seat in his S-2, while my son and I signed up to work the
contest for the week-end.  A total of five pilots flew basic, four of us
first timers, with at least three pilots borrowing a seat for the contest.
 We did not fly perfect sequences, but we flew safe, learned a lot, and had
great fun.  I was really impressed by the camaraderie and support for all,
both volunteers and contestants.  I had the thrill of flying my first
contest, my 15 year old son soloed as a corner judge and panel flipper.
 Thanks to all for sharing the experience with us. Thanks chapter 78!
