Martin?
SOLUTION: Martin Jaeger

==========================
Very pleasant and fun day! Maybe 10 pilots, three wings, and hundreds of spectators; assistive wind. One-way soaring for one pilot: BobK, despite a tennis-bummed knee challenge. Colver Swing Seat advanced iteration was flown by BobK and Dave Beardsley and I believe Frank. Ken Manett flew Alpha 210.

Highlight from Texas: (origin 1972-73 HG starter) Martin Jaeger [of GeoMedia] of H4 and Otto rating (USHGRS).

============
A pilot in green attire talked of a HG-build project. He had a HG on car. But we are missing his name; he did not fly on the day. ????? [ ]

Frank Colver arrived; he was excited to show and tell the most recent iteration of the Colver Swing Seat.

Every human at every point in history has an opportunity to choose courage over cowardice. Look around and you will find that opportunity in your own time.
