h3. Proposal title

Wing Loading Limtiation

h3. Existing text


h3. New text

Limit wing loading in two categories of beginner and expert

h3. Reason

To improve safety and accessability of current and future competitiors.  The current slalom environment continues to decrease wing sizes, increasing the speed and risk profile to pilots, while creating barriers to new pilots interested in entering slalom competition.  Wing loading limitations will effectively determine that competition results are dependent on pilot skill rather than speeds attained from loading and motor thrust.
