Phew! I made it through my first full year as Editor, and I come away thinking, “Hey that wasn’t that bad!” I appreciate all of the enthusiasm from members, especially given all of the changes we’ve implemented together this year.
What I especially like is the renewed interest in Quickies that I see shaping up across the globe, and the highly technical articles written by members like you. In fact, this issue was written almost entirely by other members.
I’m guessing that for every article submitted, there are about ten people quietly working away on their projects. This in turn leads me to believe that there is much more left to say about these wonderful designs. So my hope for the New Year is that you’ll ask one of the current contributors how easy it was to send in an article, and perhaps submit one yourself!
For now, I want to wish all of you a very warm and happy holiday season. Some of us up here in the north may have to put our flying aspirations on hold a bit due to the weather. My holiday wish for you is that this allows you to spend more time sharing with your family, including your extended family of Quickie builders and flyers!
Remember, "Together we build better planes" (and newsletters.)
