[MMMFreeFlight] rare kits up for auction
MST, December 7th, Friday. Give me your max bid.
Please distribute to your club lists!
One of Romash's flying buddies, Stu Pell, passed away last summer. Stu was a
member of the ECIM indoor club and donated some very rare kits to offer to
interested buyers. The kits are original and complete 1940s-vintage Midwest
Gollywock and Jabberwock-- in their original boxes. Stu's request was that
these kits go to the betterment of the hobby, so we are going to auction
them off at the MMM annual meeting December 8th. 100% of the proceeds will
go to the Junior F1D team on behalf of Stu Pell and the MMM Club. This
vaunted team will be defending their team and individual Golds, at next
year's World Champs in Ukraine.
Don't miss your chance to own one or both of these classic kits in excellent
collectable condition, while helping the Junior F1D at the same time.
Opening bid will be $40 for each kit, but I'm sure they will go for much
more. I've seen 1940's kits on Ebay go for well over $100.

Bring back 14
On 2006 I first came to the 14 rounder MM held at Lost Hills with the
wonderful help given by George.
The long (and expensive) trip was nothing compared with the amazing
experience of competing 2 days.
Ever since, I've wanted to come with more friends of mine to participate in
this great competition but 2008 like 2007 will only be 7 rounds.
I know of the weather problem but I think that by changing the schedule
(and maybe rethinking about the mini events) it may minor this problem.
We are going to try in Israel for the first time (on March) a 14 round F1A
competition - but I am still hoping that 2009 will "make" me return to the
wonderful field of Lost Hills.
The trip from Europe (not to mention the Middle East) is long and expensive
but for such great event- I believe that others, like me, it is worth every
cent and day...
Am I the only one who feels this way? Is there any hope for the future?
