Video Entertainment for Club Annual Banquet by [email protected]
I've been saddled (again) with the charge of organizing our club's yearly banquet. As usual, I am struggling with how to entertain about 50 ornery pilots and their spouses for 3-4 hours. Aside from the normal awards and keynote speech from our club president, I was hoping to find a short video...

L-13 + TE + Audio Vario by Ray Lovinggood
I would like our club to install an audio variometer in our basic trainer, the L-13 Blanik. Some candidate varios include, the Borgelt B-40, the Tasman, and the LX-16 (I think). There may be others too. But I believe these all need TE input. The Blanik is not plumbed for TE. Has anyone...

Winch give-away by KP
Our club has a winch that has not been used for fifteen years. When we moved to a public airport there was not the logistics to run a winch operation. So there it sat. At the last BoD meeting it was decided to take it to the scrap metal yard and see what we can get for it. But I made the tragic...
