I am still expecting to make it from San Francisco and won't be put out by some
guys cleaning their models after every flight. I've been known to do that as

Sure, but it would be helpful to know that a few others had committed
themselves to attend, before setting out on a 2000 mile trip.

I think this is the key to getting a respectable turnout. WW1 is at the
bottom of the interest pile, and electric flight is at the bottom of that
pile as well. So, let's just get WW1 aircraft out for a weekend of flying,
and to hell with restrictive rules.

Glow/gas power is noisy, but seeing WW1 aircraft in flight negates this
minor annoyance. Besides, maybe exposing some gas guys to electrics will
further the cause.
