Wing It 2019

We met Sunday March 28th 2019 at the Good Shepard Lutheran church (North of the store 2 mi) for the Judgment portion of the Wing-It contest.  The flying part of the contest will be held this summer and the dates will be posted shortly.  We had 15 contestants with a strong Spectator turnout.  I was happy to see the beautiful models with all the effort put forth by the builders.  Top 10 this year overall were:

Name         Points

1 – Ted Labbe      36

3 – Steve K.         21

4 – Barn Bauer    14

6 – Gary Putman  11

7 – Glenn B.          10

Great job to everyone that attended.  I am looking forward now to the flying part.

Airbrush Seminar 11/10/18

Today we had our air brush seminar. Great turnout, thanks everybody! Joe and George did a fine job of sharing their knowledge about the tools and paints. There were many good questions and no donuts survived :) Next week we will “cover” Iron on coverings. Curt will cover a wing. Please join us if you can.
