Regretfully the quality control of Martinsville Cambridge left a bit to be desired but it was real basic stuff which took 5 min to fix. Do not blame Gary for Martinsville...

I have narrowed down my choices to 'Soar Minden' in Nevada and 'Estrella Soaring' in Arizona (a little concerned about July heat in phx). Has anybody had any experience with the above schools? ...
