Perhaps "Tandem Wing event" is a phrase lacking a clear definition. Still,
this year at Jean ALL the presentations were on Engine related stuff. Most
were on engines in the 60-120 HP range -- suitable for our TWs -- but
really suitable also for many other aircraft, such as Zenith 601 and 701,
Kitfox 6, many of the RANS aircraft etc.
I'm not saying it is wrong for the Laughlin/Jean Mountain States fly-in to
evolve this way, but I would like a TW event to spend more time looking at
TWs and talking about their problems and triumphs.
I do NOT want the TW events in the southwest to conflict with the
Mountain States fly-in, I enjoy both, but I expect the Mountain States
fly-in to concentrate on engines and the LVK fly-in to concentrate on
TWs. Change would be welcome as long as we have at least one meet per year
in which we concentrate on Tandem Wings.
