The US Nationals/IRCHA are inside of 60 days and we must all be thinking about this event!
After spending the weekend with Mr. Shilling, I discovered he is working very hard in preparation (he's flying pretty good too).

The Shilling food challenge was first introduces by Scott Gray and me many years ago as a bit of an opportunity to wind down just after the US Nationals. We wanted to find out who could pick a food that would not be consumed by Dwight Shilling (long term F3C competitor).
We agreed that the "food" needed to be made for human consumption and had to have bar code on the label.
We have had our very first (total) winner (containing a food that Dwight refused to eat) in 2015!
Anyone wanting to enter needs to have their product issued the day of the final flights of the National. We have never had a tie but the first one that can send him to a level II (or better) trauma center (several in Indianapolis) will automatically be crowned the champion.
I have quietly herd there are entrees being shipped from countries I've never herd of before.
