Default Now that's a surprise!

Submitted a forum idea to EAA and thought that it had been rejected. Nope, it's on! So now I'm trying to remember all those great ideas I had six months ago...

PS Museum is air conditioned, dry, and no air show noise so it will be a great venue for speakers.
Guessing there's a relationship Col Morgan?

I wish I was there so I could attend your presentation. I bought a copy of his book form him at Sun n Fun just before his fall. It was an honor for me. Still have his signed copy on my shelf!

I hope your presentation is well attended and goes well!
