I have been asked to compile a list of Mulvihill Trophy winners so the AMA can get the trophy current. The research has been interesting to say the least!
What I still need are the winners from 1990, and 1991. If anybody can help out or link me to the source, it would be greatly appreciated!
Please respond here or email me at email@example.com

in 1991 our friend Ed Konfess won at Lawerenceville. His first Mulvihill win according to the the article written by Harry Murphy in Model Aviation December 1991. There is also a really nice picture of you and your brother Paul riding that Honda 250 John is so fond of.
I will look for the other two you are asking about. AMA has done a nice job scanning all the MA’ going back to the 70’s. You can guess that the NATs results were generally available around the December time frame. In the years your talking I believe the NATS were still moving around and not at Muncie yet. It’s great fun flipping thru the scanned pages finding this stuff.
For future reference go the AMA website, make sure your registered for Member Services and look under the MA Archives.08/31/2009 at 12:49 pm #47805
Thanks for the information. That’s where I was looking for a lot of the results. The only problem was finding the years I mentioned.

In 1990 the NATS were held in October at Lawerenceville, so results did not show up till March 91 issues article by Harry Murphy. 90 winner was Bud Romak.
93 winner was a tie between Bob Bienenstein and George Perryman each had 1080. This was in Jan 94 issue article by Jim Haught.08/31/2009 at 3:55 pm #47807

Thanks, Denny! I really am. The only downside is the grief I get for losing to him! 😀
