Looking for Steve Helmich or an other Bat

This is an enquiry e-mail via from:
Santiago Rodriguez (EC-569) <This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.>

I intend to contact Steve, former Editor of the "Bat Sheet" newsletter, or somebobu from the "Strat-O-Bats" in Seattle.
Any help?
Thanks in advance: Santiago
Kiwi Power

Can anyone out there explain to me what the rules are for the power event called "Kiwi Power", often seen in results from contests in Oz?
                                                        Bill Lovins

You could get your self in real trouble her e- Aussie Power is flown in Oz and Kiwi Power in NZ. I understand they are the same. I was going to say it is a Bio Diesel class with Kiwi Fruit Juice for power but the Free Flight section of the NZMAA web site says

Kiwi Power
a) Suction fed , plain bearing diesel up to 1.5 cc.
b) Maximum motor run 10 seconds.
c) Controls: engine shut-off and DT only.
d) The propeller shall be non folding, mass produced, either
Thermoplastic (Nylon type material) or Wood.
e) 5 flights, 120 sec max.(Note: A three flight contest may be allowed if
declared before the contest)
f) No New Zealand Records are applicable to this event .

MMM Jr. Team and Field Lease Fund Raiser
From:This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Hello Roger,
Could you please help us spread the word about this fund raiser we have going on.
Thanks to a generous donation we are raffling off a Super Candy G.  This model has been flown and does have a small patch in the covering on the underside of the stab. Otherwise the model is in perfect shape.  We will conduct the lucky drawing at the MMM FAI Annual dinner Saturday June 28.  Winner doesn't have to be present and the club will pay shipping to the winner.
Tickets are $5 each or 6 for $25.  Send your checks to Chuck Etherington 33946 Goldfinch Dr Elizabeth, CO, 80107.  The proceeds will be evenly split between the Junior team and the MMM Field Lease Fund.
With your support we can sent our team off to another great competition and also help protect free flight in the Rocky Mountain West.

So what's the REST of the Southern Skies 08 story?
From: Leeper

Inquiring minds need to know...
Why did Rob Wallace fly a third FO flight, after he had won Kotuku Cup?
ANS - To break the New Zealand F1A record
And why didn't Henning make FO flights after maxing out in both Kotuku
and Omarama?
Good to see you made several FOs, Henning.
ANS  - Henning has a new way of testing if the conditions are flyable to his personal standards. In addition the NZ wine is good and probably related to the testing technique.

AND...did anyone count how many flights BVN [aka, Brian Van Nest]
made in both OZ & NZ, combined? 
Must be in the thousands...mostly maxes!  And several wins, too!
Congrats to all the winners, of course.
Especially Rob, for being King of the Southern Skies, F1A-wise!
Surely sorry I was not there...2010 is the target now!
