The intent of these notes are to address the general IAC membership on the organizational aspects of the U.S. National Aerobatic Championships. The intent is to publish a Bulletin once each month starting in January to inform members of progress leading up to our National Contest in September. Please feel free to contact the b747inst [at] aol.com (subject: US%20Nationals) (CD )for any suggestions or comments.
This page will also serve as a call for help in various positions that may need to be filled, funds that may be needed and any other general "please help us issues".

We are having a few issues with the new registration pages... I know some of you are asking about "Practice Slots”.
Our practice days are: 20, 21, 22, from 0730 - 1730 and on the 23rd from 0730-0930. The 20th and 21st is open practice - for a time slot you will see the box monitor for a slot.
For practice on the 22nd and 23nd you will pick a slot when you pre-register... however, I am not sure yet if that option will be available this year - SO... call me at 612-810-6783 or email me at B747Inst at aol.com and reserve thru me... if the registration page works I will transfer your slot time to it.
Practice September 20/21 - Boxmaster Needed
Submitted by Gary DeBaun
If you are planning on coming early and practicing in the box - September 20/21 are "unofficial" practice days... the box will be open, first come, first served. However, before you fly in the box, you must sign the waiver, get a technical inspection and find yourself a BOX MONITOR. No practice flights in the box will be allowed withoug a box monitor.... make your plans accordanly. If anyone would like to volunteer to be Box monitor for the 20/21 practice please notify the CD.

Pilots - KOSH does NOT have an LAOA like KYGI. Therefore, there is no unofficial practice days. The waiver does not come into play until WED September 20. Official practice days are Wed, Sept 20, Thursday Sept 21 and Friday, September 22. You may also practice on SAT September 23 until 10:30am. Practice slot signups will be on a first come-first serve basis WED and THRU. Friday and Saturday will be handled via the Pre-registration site (not up yet) on our website.
