U.S. F1 Technical Subcommittee Representative.

Hello U.S. FAI Flyers,

For those who may not be aware, I have been elected/appointed to the position of U.S. F1 Technical Subcommittee Representative. In short, FF CIAM Rep. It is a four-year term and I am really looking forward to participating in the process. I am honored to follow in the footsteps of George Xenakis, Dan Tracy and George Batiuk. I will keep you apprised of upcoming meetings, F1 proposals, rules changes, etc. I would also invite you to contact me should you have any FAI rules issues you would like to discuss.

Thanks.
