Jim Ramsey has moved.

To You All
The fact that there may be a rumor I’ve left the country is not true.
I’ve with help from the kids managed to clear boxes out of the strategic area. I can now eat, feed the dog, watch TV If I chose and clean myself. The computer was tied to Shaw this afternoon and I’m trying to get the message out. Think that Skye and I are coping reasonably well with the big change.
New address is:
1460 Wild Cherry Terrace
Gabriola BC
V0R 1X5

Cell 1-604-970-6469 This the old number and will hang onto it for a while.
Cell calls a bit spotty and have installed a land line.
Phone 1-250-247 8703
We both wish everyone all the best
Jim and Skye

TA TA for now…..

The late Gerry Frecks Silver Bullet to return to Shushwap

The silver bullet is being restored to flying condition and should be ready for Shushwap. Modifications will include some markers on the top wing to stop it disappearing in the low cloud. A rudder for steerage and replacement of a lazy aileron servo.
Gerry wont be with us this year but at least we can celebrate his life by flying his model there. I gather his 1/3rd Cub may also fly there. Gerry was always an early riser and ready to go at 8.00 a.m. We shall miss him on the beach. Sparks
