Soaring video Denver Channel 4 by John H. Campbell
The nifty postings by Gary and Garret reminded me that Mile High Gliding was visited 12/6/06 by a local news team. I thought that Bob (pilot) or Gunnar (TV pro) would have beaten me to a posting. The video link is: In this case, it was a...

SSA scholarship news (USA) by John H. Campbell
This would be more appropriate on a subset of news.ssa.org, I guess, but I'm not positive those newsgroups are online. Anyway, the nice update from 2003 Bultman winner Brad Towne in the Sept. SOARING (p. 4) reminds me to pass on some notes: KOLSTAD: USA Citizen, SSA member, Silver Badge (or...
