It might have been the weekend just before or after the flyin, since we stayed a week that year.

Re: Jean Fly-in

Thanks Mike, you beat me to it.

On the drive home I couldn't help to feel good about the event and its
evolution. Although it's not dramatic, since our first year after moving
from the Tucson area (2000) the event has steadily grown and become more
successful.

With that I also thought that there is still PLENTY of room for improvement,
so I figure it would be best to get feedback, suggestions and volunteers.
This year the volunteer assistance was off the chart. With Mike coming
forward and offering coffee service all day long, to Sam who did a KILLER
job not only cooking, but putting the menu together on the fly.

So... I've put together yet another yahoo group for those of us interested
in working together to make this event all it can be.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MountainStates/

There we can consider the venue itself. I personally had no issues with the
bikers. Other than on the road, I really didn't even notice them. No trash
on my floor of the hotel, no bullets coming through the walls, floor or
ceiling of my clean, comfortable, quiet and CHEAP room, and no issues in the
casino proper, other than ambient cigarette smoke and blowing $30 in the
slots. The buffet wasn't a let-down by being worse than last year as
expected, but the resteraunt next door served an awesome (and cheap)
breakfast both days that I partook.

But if the place is too low-rent for everyone else, I'm not married to it.

As for the date, it's always an issue. Too early in the spring it's too
cold. (we had snow one year) Weeks later it can be too hot. This past
weekend was perfect in my estimation, but being on the heels of SnF, we lost
the ability to draw forum presenters who just couldn't make both events.

Don has always wanted to keep it after April 15th so we could have our taxes
out of the way, and we certainly can't have it on Easter or Mother's day.
The weekend of the 5th of May is out of the question as it would compete
with the Cinco de Mayo event that the EZ and Cozy folk have in Northern CA.
(but we could consider that) So this year, bike week was about all that was
left, and since bike week is a Laughlin/Bullhead event, I ASSumed that Las
Vegas (Jean) wouldn't be an issue.

...not to mention that we get the building for free (including the propane
used at the BBQ), and are even exempt from insurance.

So anyhow, if you'd like to help grow this event, please join the group and
add your 2ยข or more.

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MountainStates/

Thanks!!!

Pat

Thanks to Everyone, but especially Pat Panzera. I had a great time. I do
have a few ideas for next year:

1) People drank about 50 cups of regular coffee and 1 cup of decaf.
"real
pilots use leaded fuel?" ;~) I do not plan to serve decaf next year
(organizers of other events may take note of my research).
(OK, used my yearly allotment of bad pilot jokes.)

2) We heard many rumors about the future of Jean Airport and vicinity. I
managed to corner an older hotel employee Saturday nite. The employees
were told the Goldstrike is scheduled to be closed in about 3 YEARS, not 3
months; and only after the Nevada Landing Casino is rebuilt. I think it's
likely we can use the airport at Jean again next year.
They are also talking about building some shops and other attractions --
maybe our wives/SOs will have something to do while we talk airplanes.

3) I would really like to avoid the weekend of the Laughlin river

Re: TriQ problems

Larry Severson
 

Are both the legs splaying the same?
Yes

Is the track still the same as it was or has it widened?
Widened a lot.

If the legs have moved forward
Actually, I measured the leg distance from the firewall, and they did
not move forward as I first thought.

but the track is still the same, maybe the attachment saddles have broken?
Have you checked out the attachment points?
Yes. They are firm and show no cracks


I can't imagine that the legs have actually lost their stiffness,
especially both sides equally, and would suspect that something is broken.
There is a build up starting at the exit point from the fuse, so I
believe that the builder did put on the stiffening layers as per the
manual. However, the plane was in Arizona for a number of years.
Also, the problem appeared during the fly-in at jean, and has gotten
worse where it now is at Hesperia. High temp (>90 degrees may be the
problem), but I need to find a solution. At this point, I think that
I will support the plane with the wheels off the ground, sand down
the fiberglass, pull the legs in to the proper distance with straps,
and reapply new layers of uni stiffener per the plans. I am not confident!

do to restore the gear function (stiffness - bow). The plane is now

Hi Allan,

two other things to try. Firstly make sure you have the right
Squeegee, and do not push so hard. It is a soft action, not an
excavation.

Secondly if the fibers get shifted, put them back, by smoothing along
the fibers ( with gloves!) and stippling resin in. The stuff is
expensive (in the antipodes)so get used to mixing the right amount.
Start with about the same weight of mixed resin as cloth and vary to
suit. Mix small batches - a couple of pumps of the resin pump(and
have a hairdryer close by to warm both the glass and the resin). Do
not use CinC Domestic's.....

You will find that you can wet out much faster when the temperature is
correct (- check it) and also if you put the resin on and leave it for
a minute or two then squeegee off the excess.

If I load my plane to gross, 1300# in my case, and fly with a 210 #
pax, 40# baggage, and burn off all the fuel except 18# in the header,
My CG will be aft of the the aft limit.
Again my battery is 16# at station 80.

Morning Kev

I HAD intended to try for the Spring Fling but unfortunately I
have a guest arriving from Grand Cayman on the 20th.
She had told me that she was coming over in June, but when she
called me just before I received your message (like, a couple of
hours!) she told me that she had already booked her flight for the
19th of May, arriving the morning of the 20th.!!
Sods Law!

I really would have liked to have been there, but I am sure you
will all enjoy the event without me, though I know it will be
difficult!
Have fun Kev, and thanks for asking.....next time, hopefully.

Paul.

Paul,
Good to hear you are working on the plane.
I spoke too soon, but I will get some pics the next time I get
near
the hanger. Probably on Friday. I have a few, but they are very
confusing.
Are you planning to be in the States the 18, 19, 20 of May? You
could
attend the Spring Fling!!!
I will get the pics.
