Hey Chic we missed you at Toledo this year. Dave, Miranda and I went up and had a pretty good time up there. We ran into Rick Moreland? and his wife......man, the stories that Rick told about you. Could they all possibly be true??? Hope you can make it to our big bird June 15th and 16th.

IMAC Practice Sessions

Carruthers43
I sent you a PM this morning because I was rushing out of the house (school teacher). However, I am honored that you would take the time to work with me, an IMAC rookie in my campaign to become a better pilot. Will really look forward to sharing air space and getting some great lessons from ya. Chic

Rick Moreland

Hey there Cliff600, great hearing that you guys still remember me. Would like to make that trip to Toledo again, sure would. You know how Rick is, he could exaggerate a small lie into a national security threat. Of course, there is always some truth to what he may say. Smile. Got to luv him, he is probably our next Regional VP for AMA. Shhhhhhhhh. Chic

You're all (Matt, Chic, WG, Fovo, Gorgone, etc) welcome at my field sometime and we can do a good practice / critique day for everyone. It'll be middle to end of May before I really have time to spend a solid day at the filed, but when that time comes it'd be fun to get a crew together.

I'm all for it Ty!

Definitely need to get past mid-May...maybe toward beginning of June. I want to ramp up my practice in June to prepare for Nats!

Whirlygirl, I knew you and your husband were real people the first time I met you guys. You and Matt ---- wanting to spend time with this rookie to teach and help me become a better pilot, I just don't know what to say except Thank You So Very Much. Mid-May it shall be. My Sbach is almost finished. Chic

Haha Ty sounds like a plan.. You going to make any NE contests??? An Chic we are all rookies and we have to help everyone if we want this hobby and especially iMac to survive... I remember my first basic contest at thornburg I felt like such an outcast on Friday for practice and said I would NEVER do that actually if it wasn't for Jeff Whitaker and Kent porter I probably never would have returned...

Hey Matt,
Don't know if I will make any NE contests this year or not, the NE contest schedule and my open weekends aren't so much in agreement this year, so we'll have to see if i can work something out.

One or two more and you might as well have a contest.

I would be up for a Nats tune up. That is if I decide to go.

I want more than a tune up for Nats...I don't want to go there and look like an arse!

I want to be ripped up one side and down the other, told I suck and sent home crying like a baby...oh wait, that's what Albert says he wants you guys to do to me. I'll take some gentle coaching and a swift kick in the pants if I don't listen though.

My 36% Sbach Dilemma

Just wanted to update everyone on this rookies progress. This is my current issue that Dave, Mr. Pro-Flow has eagerly rendered the solution since he has done it before for another flyer. Seems that the Sbach firewall placement is too shallow to accept the necessary 11" header length without a considerable modification. The photos speak for themselves. Moving the rear of the can tunnel back at least 4" and changing to rear dump cans (in the return mail to me as we speak) which is where I begin tonight.
