The 1998 F1D W.C. Final Word

I just talked to Hardy Brodersen today and he informed me that the CIAM
awarded the 1998 F1D W.C. to Rumania. We are returning to the Salt
Mines. A great deal of behind-the-scenes activity was dedicated to
obtaining the W.C. for the US to be held at Johnson City before the USIC. I
would hate to have Hardy's phone bill. Hardy also put the arm on a number
of contributors to help ease the pain the AMA was feeling if it were to
suffer another loss in revenue such as was the case in 1996. This was the
stated reason the AMA did not support our efforts to host the meet this
year. Even when we had obtained enough money to cover all possible
debt, the AMA's letter of support was only lukewarm. I would like each
of you to post this information so that indoor fliers and the general free
flight community can have the latest info. It strikes me that the NFFS will
need to develop some form of competition support fund to help with the
sponsorship of World Championship events. It's a topic for our discussion
during the next few months. Thanks for your help in getting this information

The AMA offered to come to the rescue but it was not necessary to impose
on its generosity (and concern for the well-being of the class).
