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.
