Contact Magazine is hosting their annual alternative engine symposium this Sat. June 9th in congunction with the Golden West Fly-in in Marysville, CA (MYV).

FYI, Red Bovine Aviation (AKA Woody Harris) will be attending Contact Magazine's Alternative Engine Symposium. I'm bringing my Coast-to-Coast-to-Coast Zodiac 601XLB/Corvair 2850 as well as a selection of Fly Corvair Conversion Manuals, Installation Manuals, Flight Operation Manuals, Engine Dissassembly DVD's, Engine Assembly DVD's, engine budgeting sheets, build sequence sheets, and Fly Corvair Price/availability sheets. Note that the manuals and DVD's sell at a discount for those attending the event and are the closest you'll get to instant gratification in do-it-yourself aviation!  The budgeting, build sequence, and price sheets are free, and go a long way towards making sense of the whole process.

I'm also bringing info sheets from Dan Weseman on his 5th bearing, Corvair parts, and his new Panther aerobatic kit airplane.  "But wait, there's more!"  Info sheets from Mark Petz of Falcon Automotive and Roy Sarafinski of Roy's Garage 5th bearing fame as well.  

Pat P suggested the possibility of our own BBQ if there is enough interest.

Be there or be square.

Hello Woody,

I will see you there along with Doug and Lori of Quality Sport planes and other airplane folks we know.

FYI, my Zodiac will be entered into a contest at Golden West with 4 other aircraft from EAA chapter 124 to be judged against other EAA chapter aircraft.  I have got to get out to the airport and wash and wax it.
