We stayed at Scott and Monica Barrett's in North Belmont (near
Newcastle) for three days after Christmas while they were visiting family in
Victoria. We had the opportunity to have dinners with Conrad Loten (and Annucia
and Myra), Billo (and Julia) and Adam Parer (who is now living at his mother's
house in Newcastle). I took the opportunity... mehr

Wendi Herman <<wendi.herman>>,
the meet organizer, has apparently been very successful when it comes to
organizing a competition that lots of pilots want to attend. This year it seems
like there is enough demand that she could have organized two
Corryong Cups and filled
them both up. Cameron Tunbridge tells me that she is a very... mehr

You might remember my articles about that nasty letter I got from
Tim Herr, the USHPA lawyer, demanding that I pull off the Oz Report web site a
document that he claimed I ripped off the USHPA web site (I did not).  The
articles are found here: (three articles) and here: (three... mehr

I've already pointed you to the latest proposals from the USHPA
Competition Workgroup for sanctioning and the competition rulebook
here. It's great to see that the Competition Workgroup sees the value of
dividing up the Rulebook, as I have proposed, but unfortunately they
are still headed in the wrong direction (suppressing competition and... mehr

The EC dealt with the request to reimburse me (I'm not the only
one) for their error in stating the dates of the BOD meeting on their web site.
You might remember the original story:
Well, of course, the USHPA wasn't going to come up with the money to pay off
this thorn in their side just to come to another USHPA... mehr

Given the rules promulgated on the pre-Worlds site it is not very likely that
all thirteen US pilots (nor all twenty Russian pilots) will be allocated spots
at the 2010 pre-Worlds by the organizers of the 2011 Worlds.
See the rules here:

All the pilots here had a presentation today at our hotel to give
$2,900 from monies received from pilots around the world to the English school.
The money will go toward building a classroom (the total required for one
classroom is $6,000) and paying the yearly salary for one teacher ($3,000).
Obviously we haven't collected enough to pay... mehr
