First Item.  This Saturday is the Iron Man Electric.  The good news is the wind is forecast to be only 3MPH all day.  The best wind conditions we've had at an event in memory. The less good news is that the temp is forecast to be at or below freezing all day.  The wonderful thing about Electrics is they are easy to start in the cold.  We will have the shop heated for warming up and we'll have hot drinks available from about 8:00 Saturday.  Donuts for breakfast and Lunch will also be available.  Hope to see you there.

Second item.
As you are probably well aware there is pending rules and regulations from the federal government that could disastrously cripple many aspects of the HOBBY of model aviation.  I'll not go into lots of details on that now -- but -- bill is before the house to exempt the HOBBY of model aviation from the rules and regs facing UAV's (unmanned aerial vehicles).
