Giles Henderson Memorial Challenge

You’re invited to join IAC Chapter 61 for the 2021 Giles Henderson Memorial Challenge (formerly known as the Salem Illinois Regional Aerobatic Contest). The event will be held at the Salem Leckrone airport (SLO) and will include Primary through Unlimited power categories.

You must pre-register no later than 9 August at the IAC website if you plan to participate.  We won’t be accepting registrations (only payment) at the contest.  This will allow us to have ALL of the clipboards built beforehand and have a much less stressful contest.

You must send a pdf of your Free forms A, B, and C to the chapter (iacchapter61 [at] gmail.com) by 9 August.  We will make all the required copies, so you don’t have to worry about that!

Plan to bring a check, credit card, or PayPal account to the contest as we won’t accept cash.

If you don’t have a Twitter account, please get one (free) and follow our chapter (@IChapter61) as that is how we will be providing real-time contest info (order of flight, score results, volunteer assignments, news updates, etc.) to reduce person-to-person contact and gathering around paper taped to walls/windows.

We will make a final go/no-go decision (in case we don’t have enough judges or if the COVID-19 rules change against us) on 13 August.

Tech Inspections and Practice will be held on Friday 20 August, starting at 10:00. The contest will begin with a 7:30 briefing on Saturday, 21 August and conclude by noon on Sunday 22 August. 

The banquet will be held at the Elk’s Lodge in Salem.
