Ron made it to Philadelphia without incident, except for a little confusion over the move.. He is receiving the best rehabilitation care available and may return in 6 to 8 weeks.

Updates here as they are received.

If you haven't had a chance to visit Ron, your window of opportunity may be closing as early as next Tuesday (11/1). Nothing is certain yet, but it could be that he will transfer to a special rehabilitation center as far away as Philadelphia and remain there for up to 8 weeks. Use213 250 4200to chec...

Hey, Jonathan! We should partner up. Together, our wittiness could, reputedly, decimate the sport of hang gliding. Let's bring those suckers to their knees!

Has anyone tried hanging upside-down until their nose bleeds? It may be that the pressure on the brain causes the capillaries directly adjacent to the sinuses to expand beyond the capacity of one's normal hemostasis to prevent leakage. Good for Halloween as it would cause one to appear to be bleedin...

The Independent Radio Club is sponsoring a Technician Class and Test on October 15-16 for a mere $50 (+$15 test fee). It will be in Eagle Rock and I hear...

You must be speaking satirically, Doug. You're the one who's demonstrably become one of "them."

Wills Wing Bags Found

From Saturday afternoon:
I found both bags used to cover the downtube-ends/corner brackets for a Wills Wing glider. They are in the lost and found or see Jay, if you're unfamiliar.

Downtube Pad

Someone lost their large pad, the one that Cathy makes for wrapping downtubes. If I got the story correct, it may be from the Blackhawk trip a few weeks ago.

The Sewer Line Is IN!

Starting at 8AM, Tuesday May 24, the backhoe operator hired by Richard Shaw began to dig at the street. By 4PM the trench was complete. Richard, Jay and Jim laid about 210 feet of pre-assembled, ABS line into the deep gash in the driveway. The line is filled with water for inspection, due Thursday. ...

I agree. In the last few weeks, I've been getting pummeled by the turbulence over the West face between the radio shacks and the Nike base. After my bitching about getting dumped badly, twice, trying to circle in something strong, someone mentioned to me that the winds aloft were mildly from the Nor...

Which other clubs? And what are their membership fees? I'm not looking to debate the merits, I'm just asking for the information. And it isn't free. Someone has to pay for it. I would think that all those other clubs probably budget for WiFi within the context of their revenue from dues and storage,...

DRINK DISPENSER DOLLAR CHANGER IS DOWN

Don is unable to service the drink machine until April and wants everyone to be aware that the dollar changer is out of service. The dollar slot has been taped for those unaware of the issue.

Coins will work. Press the button for the desired drink and check the display for availability first.

I recently performed my sort of annual update of the Member Photos page. Many of our current members are missing, especially, our newest.
