Hello FAI, USA , team aspirants
I think in the past few days that you have all received your packet from the AMA with the two proposals for a finals site.
I would urge all of you to consider the Muncie proposal very seriously! The last several finals have all been at Lost Hills, California. It is time to get a rotation of sites before the program becomes just an event for California flyers.
In my opinion, it is time to get a rotation of sites going again, and now is the time to make the rotation to Muncie. It is now or never for Muncie!
It would be nice to see a site rotation begin with Muncie in 2010, and in 2012 at Lost Hills. Alternately, maybe even a Muncie, Lost Hills, Denver rotation, if Denver will have us?
As you know, most of the FAI flyers are located on the West Coast, and you have the rest of the country outnumbered. So if it is a popularity contest, Lost Hills always gets the vote.
If this finals is not at Muncie this time, I will not attend. I can’t see continuing in this sport if it is required to attend a Lost Hills Finals every time, i.e. to go out and experience a competition against the HOME TEAM!
I think that FAI participation has really dropped in the central and eastern states, with the exception of the Waywayanda group with their exceptional program in Connecticut. Part of the cause for this is the cost and time for midwest and eastern flyers having to travel to Lost Hills for every team selection finals
Hope to see all of you at Muncie in 2010!
