The Saturday Night Dinner has been cancelled!


February 4, 2016

Hope everyone is getting their woody sailplanes built or re-paired, time flys, June 4 and 5 will be here quicker than we think. I know Greg Smith is putting his WF-XL back together and I have planes to finish building and a Challenger to repair.

Entries are now arriving, looks like we are going to have a good turn out.

NOTICE: ........................ NOTICE .........

  1. We are going to have a Dinner Saturday Night, more info to come. I would like to have a knowledgeable person volunteer to put on a a short seminar - question and answer - after the dinner about installing electric motors in WOODYS. Please contact me quickly if you want to help.
  2. The Standard size class for all those events is changed from a wing span of 100 inches to 105 inches. 2M wing spans can fly in the 105 inch size class. I have a 2M Lil Bird electric that will do very well in the 105" electric size class.
  3. You will be able to add or subtract entries to your entry form up to the deadline for entries, May 1.
  4. SCALE ... We will have a "BEST SCALE AWARD". All Wood Crafters are eligible to vote secretly for their choice. I wonder if I will ever finish my Scale sailplane.
  5. I have 2016 Wood Crafter Calenders and Coffee cups in my garage sale on my web site. The photos on the web are blurry, but not on the actual items. http://www.skybench.com/garage.html
