Our own Captain Ron Spencer receiving a medal for
4th place in Advanced from CD Larry Bashore, standing on
the right, at the 2000 Pennsylvania Aerobatics
Championships in Maytown, PA held in June. This
contest, sponsored by our neighboring chapter 58 was a big
success - 3 days of beautiful weather, plenty of flying and
fun. Although, many members of our chapter were a
no-show (shame, share, shame!) we managed to score in the
middle of the pack overall.
You can see the entire photo album from Maytown on the Pictures Page.
We have a new logo. It was designed
collectively by some of our members and even some of their
family members. Take a look
at it here and see if you find out what the Latis
phrase in it stand for.

That's right! Our own "Master of Ceremonies" Harley Carnes was a guest announcer at this year's Sun n' Fun in Lakeland, Florida. With his smooth voice Harley delighted the audience during a United States Aerobatic Foundation History of Aerobatic Competition demonstration.
Former aircraft such as a Bucker, Pitts, Laser, Hurricane, as well as current aircraft like Sukhoi, Edge 540 and Cap 232 were piloted by several past and present team members.
|Val Beaudrault passes away|
It is with great regret that we
report the passing of long time IAC member and supporter
Val Beaudrault, who passed away March 8, 2000. Montaine
Mallet sent a note to me about Val’s passing and some
information about Val’s contributions to Chapter 52
in the early years.
Val was a member of Chapter 52 many years ago. He was a judge first and then the chief judge for many years. Montaine thinks he may have a judge at our Chapters first contest in 1976 or 77! Val and his wife were always ready to help and did so much for the sport and our Chapter in the early years. Val served on the IAC board of directors in 1983 & 1984. He was a judge and a chief judge at more contests than can be counted. He was a founding member of Chapter 35 in New England and served as its president and vice-president for many years. He was a staunch supporter of "grass-roots" aerobatics and remained active in general aviation after his retirement from Eastern Airlines. A memorial service was held March 13, 2000 in Milford, NH.
Memorial contributions can be made to: The Val Beaudrault Memorial Scholarship Fund for Aviation, c/o Bank of New Hampshire, South Street, Milford, NH, 03055.
Condolences may be sent to: Pricilla Beaudrault, 61 Sawyer Rd., Weare, NH 03281
