QUICKIE BUILDERS ASSOCIATION

INTRODUCTION

by Robert Herd

Our membership is continuing to grow at a quick, even pace which is very encouraging. Everyday we receive a small handful of mail from people who are interested in QBA and have heard of our efforts through other builders. A surprising number of these letters are from individuals who are still considering if they want to try a homebuilt project. Naturally, we welcome their questions and hope to be of benefit in any future decisions.

 

Any tentative feelings Jim and I had about not receiving enough builder hints for the newsletter have all but vanished. We are finding that the opposite is occurring. All tips are placed in an active file to be used for upcoming issues. None are discarded. Your items are placed in an active file to be used for upcoming issues. None are discarded. Your items may take a while before they see print, but we will try to publish all of them. We will probably retain some and group them together to address a particular issue. This doesn't mean you can start being complacent as members. Remember...keep recruiting and keep sending in those ideas.

 

One recent letter caught my attention, which I would like to address. The member stated: "It is my opinion that you (or someone) should concentrate on a Quickie newsletter, rather than dissipate your efforts on the Q2. As the Quickie is a well-engineered (Rutan) design, where the Q2 may well not be. I am afraid that you will expend the majority of the newsletter massaging the Q2 foibles to the exclusion of us Quickie builders."

 

It is a question, which we knew would arise at some time. I do not intend to debate the engineering advantages of one craft over another. Regardless of any differences, both Quickie and Q2 builders deserve every advantage possible by an open communication of ideas. As editors, we hope our selection of material will reflect the needs of our overall membership. Since our ranks are fairly evenly divided, this means that neither side will be slighted and equal space shall be given to both airplanes. If any of you think we are leaning too much either way, let us know.

 

'Nuff said.
