Damon,

I just have to tell you how much I enjoyed seeing your plane fly at SEFF. When Dad and I arrived on Wednesday morning, we were setting up our EZ-UPs down on the 3D end of the field. As we were working on unpacking and such, I happened to look down to the sport-flyer end of the field and saw your 1919 flying. I remember saying something like, "Dad, is that a real plane? That's gotta be a full-scale plane!" It wasn't long before we walked down there to check it out.

Seeing the 1919 in the air reminded me of several years ago when Dad and I were camping at Sun-n-Fun in Lakeland, FL. We woke up early one morning to the sound of a full-scale Bleriot puttering over the campground. Your 1919 had the same scale presence in the air. Very nice job, and I'm glad you won best of show...you earned it!
