Gee Jim, there are so many.

I would start with some whom are still active and have been around for a while.
Say Oleg for starts.
Also, depends on how far would like to go back. Lex is still active and as been around for quite a while.
Then there is always Joe W

Joe Wurts, Bruce Davidson, Oleg Golovidov, Jun Catacutan, George and Charlie Morris, oh, Paul Anderson would be good!

Just to name a few.

I vote Bruce, he is a very dynamic character, and is used to the microphone

In no particular order:

Joe Wurts - goes without saying an super knowledgible person and has been around for a little while and the reason go on and on,

Tom Keisling - you can get the DLG and FAI committee member stuff and other stuff as well,

Phil Barnes - so much knowledge, no where enough time,

Oleg Golovidov - abilities both as a pilot and a manufacturer - top skills in all areas,

Bruce Davidson - super personable, super knowledegible and excellent personality everyone can relate and understand,

Mike Seid - DLG pilot and US Team manager - interesting perspective of what went on - can really teach us how to do this right

Gerald Taylor - great pilot and designer/developer. Can get a pilot's perspective on where designs are going and as well as where we might be 5-10 years from now

Mark Drela - design, piloting skills and has been away from the DLG scene for a bit and I am sure many would love to know what he is up to and pick his brain a bit.

George Morris abilites,interests outside DLGs, experiences - super interesting guy,

Paul Anderson abilites, interests outside DLGs,

Mattais Hammarskiold pilot and designer


just as a start to a much larger list.....

Bruce is usually considered our dlg spokesperson and PR rep lol. I mean he's got all those sweet videos and he's a local celebrity in Gainesville, FL where the evening news interviewed him in February during the annual contest.

Maybe a series of pod casts. There are lots of good pilots, with great information. I'd start with Joe Wurts since he just won the big one.

I have to vote Bruce too. Brother Buddy and I sent the TV Lady mentioned above onto Bruce. We don't do real TV. I do think she had a thing for me though.

All those mentioned are great DLG pilots, but Bruce has personality to burn.

True but he had done this once before.

At the same time he was the Junior Us manager so that could be an avenue to tap this time.....

George Morris for sure. Silver medalist for team usa seems the logical choice

Bruce is definitely an obvious choice, I heard both George M and Paul A on different talk shows and they did well. As others have said, there are a lot of guys that would do a great job.

The USA Juniors took Gold for their team Effort. I'm sure they could give some interesting perspectives on DLG.
