MMM 14 reminder
From: Pete Mc Quade

Fellow FAI, AMA, NFFS, and SAM Fliers,

We hope to see you at this year’s MMM 14 Round Contest in Denver.  The field is in fine shape!  If you haven’t already done so, please consider pre-registering–there’s a discount if you pre-register by June 16.  Details are in the attached announcement.

Please note the contest dates, June 22-24, which are a bit earlier than in previous years.  This was to avoid conflict with the AMA Outdoor Nats.

See you in June!
Pete
