2. We are being asked at some contests to report our altitude needs for our contests, AMA is asking CD to report the needed altitude for their events, We are asking all CD;s when they get this request to state 2000 ft as a standard for IMAC, RD’s will help with messaging to CD.s

3. Brian is requesting that we look again at RPS in an effort to “fix” a loophole that allows someone to fly at contests uncontested and end up as the regional points winner. Discussion was held on this and Brian will bring a proposal to the next meeting.
