Jan 27, 2014 ASA at the Reno Convention

"The SSA Convention schedule has firmed up, and the ASA sponsored Motorglider Owners & Maintainers Seminar will be held at 4 PM on Saturday, March 1. If there is enough interest, various break-outs will be made by brand and engine type, such as DG-400/800 Rotax 505, DG-800/Solo, ASH-26e/31/Midwest and so on. The Stemme group was interested enough to come a day before the Convention and meet as a group all day on the 26th. If there is interest from a sizable group of other ASA Self-Launchers, I will be glad to look into making the same provision; call or email soonest. See you at the convention!"

Steve Dee, ASA President
