Velcro at Soar Utah

Tom,
I take it the large flying wing is Arthur's. I didn't see any Velcro in
the picture and wondered if he had any takers for the"airborne aircraft
carrier" mission. Also, are there going to be videos from this year?

Jim,

Due to a bit of controversy of mixing foamies and crunchies at Soar Utah
2002, we decided to ban combat wings on Saturday and part of Sunday at this
year's Soar Utah. Of course, Arthur's "Mother Ship" can't fly like a
typical combat wing, due to its sheer size but I don't recall seeing any
combat wings when the slope was open to anything.

Paul Naton nor Dave Reese attended Soar Utah this year, so I'm not aware of
anyone considering release of a commercial video of this year's Soar Utah.
