Q-talk Newsletter
Sep/Oct 2013
Issue 161

Hey Member,
I stopped for bite to eat outside of Baltimore, and sitting on the counter of the restaurant were these great flyers for a local “Haunted Hayride.” What a perfect way to introduce both themes of this newsletter, namely: Halloween and the Awesome Field of Dreams Fly-in hosted by Dave Dugas at the end of August!


Field of Screams!


Even with the less than stellar weather, everyone who showed up had a great time. We were so sorry to learn of Sam and Sandy’s run-in with a swimming hole somebody placed at the end of the runway. Field of Dreams may have turned into the above for Sammy. . . but we were so grateful that they walked away unhurt. And I know that Sam has the gumption to get Race 22 put back together and flying better (and faster) than before!


In other news. . . QBA has a new home! That means Kerry and I sold our house and moved! So if you need to reach us by mail, the old address isn’t going to cut it anymore. Use this one instead:

I look forward to hearing from all of you, and I’m eager to hear what you’ve all been up to! So drop me a line any way you can get it to me!


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


Warm regards,
Dan Yager
