Scaflock - I sure hope it works out for you. I could make a trip to AZ for a sailplane gathering.

Sean - I've got the original plans from RCM for the Phil Kraft 'Das Ugly Stik', but I'm modifying the empenage on both. One will look more like a Siemens-Schukert and the other more like a SPAD XIII, although both will be monoplanes. There's one more in our club that's built per the plans. When mine are done, I plan to get photos of all three to show what can be done with a little bit of imagination and the desire to scratch build. Who knows, maybe it'll turn into an article for MA.

yeah... First thing we have to do is have a housewarming sponsored by the Balsa Brewery and Beach Club. All members must attend. That is a group I need to resurrect soon as possible. I'll go nuts in the shop and make up a big sign to go over the gate showing that the property is the "World Headquarters of the Brewers. A nice carved sign would look killer over the entrance.

Sorry JT but welcome to join up. See the following on Yahoo Groups: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Blasabrewery/

I had started this as part of another website but due to them cutting back we lost our home. I just set this back up earlier today.

Do it, Jeff! Sounds like a good piece of property. Is it improved (water and power) property?

You betcha Don! It already has a 3 bed 2 bath home on it besides the outbuildings. Move in ready as well. PM me your e mail and I'll send you a link to the listing and the GPS cords so you can check it out on Google Earth. If I do up enough solar panels I can have the place feeding back to the grid and making me money each month.

We'll be setting up to brew some stouts and ales there Stinkpot. I like the sound of "Sailplane Stout"! Black as Guinness and smooth as silk. Maybe some Meade for those that like their booze on the sweet side.

Yep, TJ, Jeff holds the copyright on "Balsa Brewery and Beach Club". LOL That was a site that Scaflock, Atmosteve, me, Hoss, Glassflugel and Chris (Teamtwisty) freqented nightly. We discussed just about everything under the sun................even models! Kind of like a raunchier version of this thread.

Jeff, I consider myself somewhat worldly but I will pass on the Meade. Had a bad experience with that stuff that took me a week to get over.

Yeah, I don't think he's caught on to his typographical error yet.

There's a small group of us at our club field that hang out after the sun goes down to discuss all manner of things R/C related or otherwise (the topics are usually raunchier when I'm there ) but we haven't gone as far as naming our get togethers. We also tend to gather at one of the local Mexican restaurants (whose employees are all Guatemalan) on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Yeah, I just noticed the typo.

I wonder if the restaurant over there is owned by the same people that have the Mexican....but Guatemalan place here. That place has AMAZING food!

Dontchya mean sotus and aels?

Ha ha ha!


Jeff, I'll stick to my decaf (usually!) colas and hot coco, but I love get-togethers. Some day I'll have to join ya'll in AZ. Not all that terribly far from CA, I think.





ETA: We are hosting a campout with the sailing club in Oakdale the first weekend of June. If anyone wants to join us, please do! There's a model airfield there.
