Q-talk Newsletter
Jul/Aug 2013
Issue 160

Hey Member,
I am sending this newsletter out a bit early since we’re heading off to Dave Dugas’ “Field of Dreams” fly-in in just a few minutes. I will have a full report on FOD in the next issue, but this issue is dedicated to Airventure 2013!


Several new faces showed up at the QBA Type meeting this year despite its omission on the daily schedule of events. All told, seems like it was a very successful event and most people left with smiles on their faces. Check out that grin on Sam Hoskins as he accepts the 1st place trophy in the Sprint Class of the AirVenture Cup Race:

Be sure to check out the AirVenture Today article featuring Roy Shannon’s Quickie. Also, if you haven’t done so already, get out to the local newsstand and buy the September issue of KITPLANES! KP Editor Paul Dye takes a ride in Bruce Crain's beautiful Tri-Q200, and I wrote about Jon Swenson's eBay project rebuild.


I hope to see you all at FOD!


Remember, "Together we build better planes," newsletters, and magazine articles!


Warm regards,
Dan Yager
QBA Editor
