 Dave- I'm following your alternate idea with great interest- keep it up.
I do have a question- I flew the IL Open in Matoon this weekend, took First in 
Int. and IL State Title, finally, but a question came up as to the Pitts Cup- 
I thought the issue, as stated right on the trophy as "Pitts Pilot"- and 
doesn't state "Aviat Trophy"- as to who qualifies to win it, was settled a 
while back and had to be a Pitts Pilot. Is this true or do Eagle, Husky Pilots 
qualify? We had one Eagle do a great (90%) job, but I scored the highest in 
Pitts- who gets it??? Let me know if you do!!! Mike Vaughn is sitting on the 
trophy pending the correct answer.

Subject: 	[IAC-L:864] Alternate Sequences

Regarding the rules proposal for alternate sequences for use during
lower ceiling conditions, I am preparing my final report for the rules
committee and need your input.  Please review the article on page 40 of
the July issue of S/A.

To date, I've had no objections to the Basic and Advanced sequences. 
Several Citabria pilots have asked that the last three figures in the
Sportsman sequence be reordered for energy reasons which has been
accomplished, one intermediate pilot reported altitude problems which he
thought would be fixed with practice, and the unlimited sequence is
being reevaluated.

I need your input regarding A.) the concept in general, and B.) the
proposed sequences.  ALL WRITTEN input will be included in this final
report.  Many of you have given me verbal input of encouragement,
however, I would appreciate a brief note for inclusion in the report. My
deadline is September 15. 

Please send your e-mail comments to lammers.david at

Thanks for your help!!!!!!!!!!!

Dave Lammers
