A few new members joined the Seaplane Forum during the days after the server crash. Daily updates had not completed prior to the crash, which unfortunately caused two new members to get lost by the database. They have been re-invited to join. Also, I am excited to announce our 1st. European SPA member! The ÖSTERREICHISCHE WASSERFLUGVERBAND joined tonight. Herzlich Wilkommen! Welcome!
Other Noteworthy Information:
The long-awaited update on Jim Poel hailed in last night and has been published. Jim is making steady progress and his recovery is recorded in Lovada’s emails. It is amazing to read how this woman handles her husband’s accident, injuries and recovery. We may want to call Jim a pretty tough cookie, but she is just as tough. All your encouraging comments and well wishes are forwarded to Lovada. The address for letters & cards is still the same: Jim Poel, Patient- c/o Strong Memorial Hospital – 601 Elmwood Ave Rochester, NY 14642.
Walter Windus (New SPA Chairman of the Board)
For those monitoring the SPA website, a little change sneaked in, with Walter Windus being the new Chairman of the Board for SPA. May there be many sunny days ahead for SPA!
