The DFW Zenith Aircraft Builders Group is going to have another meeting. It is Saturday November 21 at 8:30 to 8:45 for breakfast at the cafe (at Rio Concho) on the field at Hicks Airfield. Our meetings are informal and we are still trying to meet everyone in the area that is building or interested in Zenith aircraft. Please come in you can and bring your wife if you wish. My wife will be there and sometimes other wifes also attend.
If you don't mind I would like your email address to add to the groups email list. My email is burbby@yahoo.com.. I know it is strange but burbby is what the grandkids call me so the name stuck..
If nothing else I hope you can make it to the meeting. We need you in the group.

Hi Mike:
Great to see you on the blog. I too am a 750 builder. Since you talked about building a 701 in the past, I was going to email you at Lockheed Martin to tell you about my 750. But It looks like you are already on your way to building one too.
I saw the prototype at Oshkosh, went to Mexico for the rudder workshop in September, and after a demo ride ordered a kit. I picked up my kit in January but before I could get my workshop set up, slipped on some ice and broke my wrist. After the cast comes off I will be riveting tail parts.
I am enjoying retirement in a town of 5000 near my birthplace in NW Iowa and am the secretary of a good little EAA chapter here. I sold the place down by Austin so most of my ties to Texas have been severed. My wife and I do a lot of traveling and were in Grand Prairie a couple months ago to drive by the plant (not much change there) and dropped by the airport to say hello to Glenn Swain and check out his "soon-to-be-flying" Spacewalker. Wish I'd had a chance to stop by your office on my way to retirement , but you know how that went down.
Say hi to Penny, Larry, Nicewander, etc. for me.
And maybe we'll get together sometime soon to compare airplanes.
