  FYI Steve, and any other pilots who are planning on competing at
Copperstate next weekend, we have been asked by IAC not to utilize the
alternate sequences at our contest, so don't waste any of your practice
time on them unless you really want to. We hope to see lots of you there
for some great weather (hopefully) and great flying.
