Listers one and all.
We have scheduled a Tandem Wing "Spring Fling" fly-in for the first
weekend in May. The new location Decoran Iowa (KDEH). Please make
plans to attend.
The last two years we have gathered in Iowa City. The first year it
was great! In 08 the weather let us down. It was bad Friday and most
of Saturday. Finally got better on Sunday but everyone had headed
home on Saturday. Greg Zimmerman was a fine host and we thank him for

SO! With all that verbiage, the fling is on if no one has objection.
Please let us know if there are any LARGE conflicts. Or if anyone
else would want to be host.
Looking forward to warmer weather and seeing all of you.
