Default Congratulations Doug

Well hanger mate, it has been hard to keep the secret. Now that it's out, I'm proud to brag to everyone. You don't need to be humble. You really deserve this. I can't think of anyone that has done more to promote the greatest line of homebuilt aircraft on the planet than you.

Outstanding Doug! Well deserved...

I always read my Flying Magazine backwards, becasue I always liked Bax's column best. Met him at a fly-in once - a nice guy. I am glad the EAA recognizes good communicators in his name.

I hope I can be there to see you accept the award!

Thumbs up Congrats!

It's been exciting to watch you, your skills, your influence grow over the years. I have some printed pages of the early VAF issues and really enjoyed watching your site as you constructed Flash.

Just as Bax was always a great teacher, you follow in his large footsteps in encouraging the current and next generation of aviators. I would not be surprised to one day see a "Doug Reeves Award." I will be able to proudly tell my great-grandkids that I knew that man!

Default Congratulations Doug!

You know, when you started this website, I thought; "Well, he's doing a great job while building. But what will happen to the site after the transition from building to flying."
Well you have far exceeded all expectations. The site flourishes even more.
Well deserved!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, congratulations. I think this is the best news/forum site on the web, and not just because of the RV bias. Well deserved, Doug.

It's always nice to see an award to go to someone truly deserving. Reading VAF is the favorite part of my daily morning routine. Congrats Doug.
