2015 Sympo Articles Needed

From: John Lorbiecki

The Andy Williams song says it best: “Its the Most Wonderful Time of the Year, yes, the most Wonderful Time of the Year…” It may be the holiday season, but even better for Free Flighters, it’s time to gather papers and articles for the 2015 edition of the NFFS Symposium! I’m this year’s editor, H.G. Frautschy, and I’d like to invite anyone interested to send their submissions for the next compendium of free flight knowledge. The submissions should be between 4 and 12 pages in length, and artwork, photographs and tables/graphs are also welcome. Share your thoughts on the Theory, History, Shop Tips or General Interest, or what have you. If it flies as a free-flight model, share what you know, whether it’s sport flying or hard-core contest information. Don’t worry if you don’t think you’re much of a writer, we can help with that; what we want is your knowledge and experience to share with free-flighters around the world. We’ll take
care of the rest. You can reach me at: NFFSSympo2015@gmail.com If you need additional writer’s guidelines, don’t hesitate to ask. We’d like to have all submissions e-mailed to us and in hand by the end of February. So don’t delay, let us know what you’d like to share; we’ll be busily creating the new edition so we can have it on hand at this year’s free-flight NATS.As our old pal Walt Mooney used to say, “Thermals to you!”H.G.
