The idea for the quilt came from Janna and Brian VanNest. It was hand sewn and is a twin or couch size and made entirely of cotton including the batting. If you have questions you may contact Charlie Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org/17/2012 at 7:08 pm #50542

Buy a raffle ticket for a chance to win Bob White’s #23 Twin Fin Wakefield
In 1987 The FAI World Championships were held in France. It was one of the most memorable World Championships ever. The Wakefield event was decided in the eleventh round on the seven minute max (rules back then had flyoff flights increasing by one minute each round). It would be the last “simple” Wakefield to win the Wakefield Cup. Robert White of the United States of America, was the 1987 Wakefield World Champion. The model Bob flew in this contest was #22 is now on display in the AMA Museum.
