Saturday Pancakes
By: Tom Johnson - 06/07/10

We had a nice turnout for the pancakes on Saturday.

Gene has found a new job as the “czar of thee griddle”.

Everyone pitched in and made light work of it all.

Tell Brad thank you for buffing the Grob.  He has done a lot of work on the sailplane and I think it is turning into a fine machine.

Thanks mainly to Rus (and a little Brad), we now have the Condor soaring flight simulator up and running in the hangar.  It is very cool and should help in the training a lot.

The transponders have all been installed in the gliders.  There installation is complete and signed off, now we will have Clay from Blue Angel come out on Tuesday and do the final checks so we are good to go using them legally when we fly.

We are waiting on the control cables from Blanik America to repair 67. 

Take care, I hope this blog thing works OK.
