    Lee Hines

    Norm, in this festive season, I must THANK YOU profusely for hosting this wonderful Isaacson Winter Classic event annually!

    Roger’s addition of the KIWI World Cup has certainly been a welcomed enhancement which helps attracts folks from the
    four corners of this Earth.
    Now with the Paul MacCready events having some very nice cash prizes added, that only adds to the anticipation & fun.
    I must say, The IKE has been one of my favorite contests every year since it began, & I eagerly await the flier to be published,
    so I can begin making arrangments to attend!
    There are events for everyone to find a favorite plane to fly, & even 12 inch catapults in BTV West, that I plan hold just before
    the Sunday Prizegiving.
    I know there are many who also look forward for to this great West Coast competition, which opens FAB FEB Week,
    so here is your 2016 chance!

    this is the flyer – plain text version that also appeared in SEN. It has all the info. If you require the snow flake enhanced pretty 3 column fancy version you can screw up your courage and follow the rcgroups link in Norm’s posing above and get the PDF.

    I do regret that you have stopped that F1A foolishness as this leaves the F1A Grand Master Award open to the likes of your buddies -Zink, Brun, Allnutt et al. Maybe the winner will share the beverage part of the award with you but certainly not the now infamous Red/Orange HiViz hat
