I'm sure Thom will be there, though we'll have to wait for him to confirm this.
It will be fun, fun, fun!

I hope so, although, I know you need to work. I went flying at Pollock by myself this morning. I should have called you.
I was bored so I made a teeter tower bracket out of a piece of scrape aluminum, I check the tracking on my rotors, I took my ASI apart and removed the dead wasp, I got the cleaning supplys out to polish my rotors, but made a new hub bar instead. And put a new 5206 bearing in a friends rotorhead.
Can't wait to go flying with someone.

Rod Called and said he is still planning on heading up tomorrow, Bill and I will be there. Rudy, I repaired the brace for the tent finally!!! I have been trying to do a lot of little things to my Gyro but just can't seem to find anytime lately. I still have to get two new trailer tires and its past midnight.
