DSC01435.JPG (91505 bytes)  Dick Koolish (L) and Vern Eshbaugh recently attended two different blacksmithing classes.  Dick's class had him making a twisted hook and Vern's class, which was a Christmas present from his wife, had him making a barbecue fork.  Both classes sounded very interesting and worth the time for anyone interested in the art of blacksmithing.


Our scheduled speaker for May was Ray Harlan. Ray has been flying indoor model aircraft for over 50 years. In 1980 and 1982 he was U.S. Indoor Team Champion. In 1981 he won the Nagoya Cup in Japanís Invitational. He has also won the U.S. National Championship in 2000 through 2006. Ray holds five national records in Ornithopter, Penny Plane and Electrics.

These pictures do not do justice to the elegance of these planes.
