I flew the Antic Bipe at the 1976 AMA NAtS in Novice Pattern. The AMA Nats followed the SAM Champs. It was quite a time to attend both NATS.
I don't know where I placed, but I did have a lot of fun. After I flew, Carl Goldberg came over to talk with me and look over the Antic Bipe.
I also met Sal Taibi for the very first time. We sure had a great time.
It was my first SAM Champs & AMA NATS.
