      Okay, my turn! Shameless Commercial from Rosenthal Models USA! A last minute change of plans means I will be attending the Fun Soar next week. I will stuff as many of the latest European goodies as possible into my Dodge Caravan to display, some for sale. This includes: ChocoFly 1:3 7m ASW-17S, 1:2 7.5m Diana 2, Avanti 4m GPS Sport Racer; Rosenthal 1:3 5m ASW-15; Tomahawk 40% 7.7m full-carbon ASG-32 Mi in factory colors, 3.3m Swift S-1 EDF PNP. For accessories Torcman & LeoMotion FES Systems, sailplane cockpit parts, and whatever else I can squeeze in or strap on top.

      Well, there will be one less attending - DANG! My van developed electrical trouble Friday and the dealer said no parts until 11/4 - no time to make the trip. I am planning to be there in the Spring with a trailer-full of models. In the meantime if you need something please ask.

        So great to see everyone again and of course many thanks to Jim and all the tow guys for all the enjoyment. Was a great time as always, and weather was so superb. Great photos and video St├ęphane! Loved seeing your Asw 22 in action. Looking forward to more more more.

          Wow, what super weather! I was planing to leave Monday morning but Len, Jim, Joe and myself flew most of the day on Monday. Ha ha, oh well. And of coarse, thanks to our host Jim and Stephan for posting pictures.

            So here are a few photos I took. Stephane did such a good photo journalist job that they may be redundant.


            Thanks as always to Jim for his hospitality and all the tow pilots for their skill and time. I had a great time with great weather and great flying. Did I say Great, Great, Great?

            March is not that far off, so start your repairs and / or other winter projects. Hope to fly with all of you again soon.
