Attached is a message from the US Aerobatic

in the World contest for
reasons stated in the message. The disappointment
is shared by all, but we must
remain unified as a team. I wish to express
my thanks to all of those that
supported me and went out of their way to
do what they could to show their
support. I was really shocked and pleased
to see this support and only wish
their was a way to pay it back. I will always
be a proud representative of CCAA
and EAA Chapter1300, as I continue to participate
in regional contests throughout the
country. Once again, a very sincere thanks
to all of you.

Delegation & Lisa Popp
On Tuesday night, a telephonic team meeting
was held with all the members of the 2002 AWAC team. During lengthy discussions,
it was determined that there were several major issues that would preclude
the team from participating in this year's event. Some of the major concerns
included impossible insurance requirements, unavailability of airplanes
in the US and the continued unavailability of airplanes in Europe, shrinking
national economy, individual and group finances. These concerns, among
others have led to the 2002 Advanced Team, in conference, to elect to forgo
participation in the AWAC this year.
At conclusion of these discussions, only 2
pilots indicated a desire to continue to participate. Since the US Aerobatic
Foundation is charged with funding and managing a "Team" (CIVA rules designates
3 pilots as a National Team) it is the Foundation’s policy not send registrations
or make payment for entry of any pilots for the AWAC 2002 in Slovenia.
The protection of the individual team member's decision is paramount and
the circumstances surrounding that decision must remain confidential and
