    I can't come.
    I will be in China from 3/15 to 3/31.
    I hope someone can video this.
    I need to learn MacCready.

    Looking forward to John's presentation.

    Dinner will consist of Noelle's special chicken fajitas over rice with all the fixings, green salad, cookies and ice cream for dessert. Happy hour will be cheese and meats with crackers and adult beverages.

    If you plan on attending and haven't had a chance to RSVP yet, please email or call the gliderport. :-)

    FYI I put my slides for the talk up on my website. You can follow this link, google "John Cochrane Soaring", go to the webpage

    or directly choose pdf or powerpoint format.

    I went wild, so there are about 3 x more slides than we will talk about tomorrow. Also, I'll use the dry ASW24 as example glider, but the slides have numbers for a variety of other gliders. You might want to follow along while looking at numbers closer to your glider.

    See you tomorrow!
