Need contacts in Kansas City area

Hi guys,

The near year is bringing lots of changes to my life, including moving from New Orleans to Kansas City (Overland Park). I have had a great time with electric rc toys here, and I have met many great guys. I'm very active in the hobby, I fly electric sport & competition planes ( A&B electric sailplane -- actually won B at Nats in 2000) as well as very large scale sailplanes & TD, and a few large gassers as well.

I'd appreciate any contacts in the KC area for these pursuits.

I've put a few rough web pages up that show what we have been up to over the past 18 months.

Moving on the 15th of Jan.

TIA
