President: Bill Hartill - so make sure you'e at the Am Cup Banquet at Lost Hills..
Pan Am Champs Moving right along
The Squire of Taft, the international FAI gadabout, fat airfoil tester and bon vivant, Peter Allnutt reports that already entries have been recieved from 15 countries, plus some extra teams and including F1A World Champ and World Cup winner. You can enter on the field but see below ..Those of who are astute in FAI affaires will realize that the said F1A champ is neither Pan nor American so this event is open to all in sundry. A great opportunity to see the top sportsmen and latest technolgy. Be sure to see how the Scottish team have pushed thing way beyond the edge or what was thought possible with the flying haggis - for F1E of course - Basque shepherds watch out.
Seeing Peter is a Luddite and has now replaced Bob White as the only person I'll take verbal input for SEN - you can call him on +1 661 763 5039
For the non Luddite you can find the entry on the web site under contest calendar and recalling critical info it is on
