I will not be able to Ma8il a Cashiers check until after the 3rd of August. But rest assured I will indeed do just that. Best Wishes Robin. I hope that you are back Flying real soon. That wish goes for Me also by the way.

You know I feel sorta like a Blow hard. For I really wish that I could have gone to the Bank and got a Money order then I could have sent. Nut, there is always a But with a Sacker such as I. I no longer have A Drivers License. <y License was taken away from Me due to when I pounded My self into the ground 11 years ago. Yes I did the all-Time pound of My Flying Career. The result of my injuries was that I spent 4 months flat on My back in the Hospital while I was AWOL as in a Coma for 3 Months.

But all that trauma and Drama was then, This is now. My sister and mine plan is to go to the Bank tomorrow. That way I will be able to et a Money order.

This lack of action on My part just shows what a slacker that I am. For my Sister and I did not get the Bank or the Post Office. But do not count Me out, I will get this done.

OK I guess that I am a true Slacker. But by no later than Tuesday I will be able to get to my Bank where I will buy a cashiers check for Robin. I guess I really am a Blow-Hard and a Slacker.

Stephen Crye is organizing this fundraiser on behalf of Robin Hastings.

Created October 11, 2020

Steve Crye wrote:
Robin Hastings has been a fixture in the US Hang Gliding community for over 40 years. His articles have been published in USHPA magazine and elsewhere. Always willing to mentor and assist new pilots, he selflessly provided rides to the Dry Canyon launch for the last 30 years, destroying at least one 4x4 truck on the terrible road. Friend to hangies and baggies alike, he has served in multiple capacities in the Rio Grande Soaring Association, where he is currently Secretary.

In addition to be being an expert HG pilot with over 5000 flights, he as an accomplished amateur astronomer, physicist and gymnast.

He is now in the fight of his life and needs our help! In late September 2020, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer that has spread to his liver. He is only 66 years old, in great shape other than this malady, and has many years of flying ahead if we can help him beat this. As you all know, pancreatic cancer is aggressive so there is no time to waste.

I have known him since 2015 when I was a green beginner paraglider pilot. We fly together as often as possible. I am also an officer in the RGSA. I'm starting this fundraiser for him because he is too proud to ask for help. Let's all pitch in and help give him a fighting chance and relieve some of the financial burden his family is facing.

I'm sure he will appreciate encouragement and support. He is active on US Hawks, and you can reach him there

To me, Robin, you were ever a spirit director of US Hawks, setting high standards for sharing yourself for the benefit of others. Your perseverance and constancy heightened my hope for hang gliding communications.
R.I.P., Robin; you are cleared for the Next Thermal; ... you and yours are in my prayers :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute: :salute:
