Bob, Lars, Chad, and everyone else that I got to talk to between sprints to keep Kyle out of trouble- thanks fo rthe chats and hospitality! Bob, when we look through the program and run across your big pic on page 146 (congrats on that, BTW!), Kyle says "Bob's Rocket Six!"

I uploaded this video of Unlimited Silver race from Sunday. Any guesses as to what his favorite plane is?

Cool! It was fun hanging out with you and Kyle (poopy diapers and all! ). He's showing early signs of extraordinary good judgement and taste...picking a Grumman Cat as a fave! Good job Dad!

Cheers,
Bob

Default The Wendover Photo on the VAF Home Page Today

I spent enough time under that red belly at Reno to be drawn to the photo without looking at the text. Tommy Ishii (the honorable crew chief of out little band) is mentioned when I did get to the text. Which is his airplane in the photo?

Bob, Turbo is A4, and is in the slot right behind me in that pic. He's in the white, blue and gold-trimmed 6 that you can see so well in the reflection on the belly that you guys worked so hard to make so shiny during the races!

Fun show in Wendover!

Cheers,
Bob

Default I though that might be him!

Thanks for the info. That waxing was strictly on Tommy Turbo! All I did was try to guide looky lou's away from touching it to avoid the wrath of Tommy. He spent five hours bringing it to perfection and he wasn't about to let the effort be wasted. He was one fine crew chief and it was an honor to work for the two of you.
