You haven’t heard much from me and this will probably be my last blog post until September.
Between o4 August and 11 August, I will be attending THREE contests – yes, three contests in a week. Tomorrow is our local Cloudbusters’ Picnic meet, then Tuesday I leave for the AMA Nats in Muncie, Indiana (FAC events Wed-Fri), and lastly, Saturday and Sunday is the much-rescheduled McCook Squadron FAC meet (staying in Muncie).
Geneseo was fun, as always, but it left me with some chores. My dependable and always-a-contest-threat King Harry flew away. My Jimmie Allen Sky Raider suffered some blown-out sticks, my new Wanderer had a wobbly tail and smashed the nose, and my Caudron flew great until I tried to make it fly better and it blew out some side supports. So here’s what I have been doing in these two weeks:
A new King Harry has been built. The Wanderer’s nose and tail have been rebuilt. The side was repaired on the Sky Raider, the Caudron has been repaired, and I spent an afternoon trimming out the Kuenz Klingon Embryo. The Klingon was selected to be the One-Design and will be given out to registrants at this year’s FAC Outdoor Champs in September. I built this one while Ralph was still alive and we will be honoring him this year. I thought I better get mine flying as an example of the product. I’ll give it a workout tomorrow.
Here’s two more images: the first is the T-Shirt image for the Outdoor Champs. You can register online right now by going here: http://cloudbustermac.tripod.com/registration.html – when you show up at the Champs, you will get a T-shirt AND a Klingon Short Kit. The second is a reminder that I will be out of town and you might not want to order from my shop, unless you don’t mind delays.
