Tom, then you must know Flyin-Again, since his real name is Jared and he seems to be your Vice-President. I just told him to look you up. I bet you had an hand in getting him to WattFlyer.

Hey Jim,

If it's the same Jared, I know him very well. He used to work for me. Great guy. He was at the fly in this month but never mentioned he is a Wattflyer member.

Thanks Dave. Probably not going to see me as a board member either. I'm just the guy that shows up with the little electrics.

I was a little surprised to see them starting to acknowledge that you have a long green thing....


Here is an aerial view of our field taken by Tom Long Green Thing, from his plane that he has a camera mounted in. This was taken during the Club's Picnic and Fun Fly on July 14,2007. It was a great success.

it's sad, really. He'll leave that thing out anywhere. One of these days there will be an ugly accident.

Tom's long green thing, will be mangled in a lawnmower.....

It's really kind of cool Dave. It doubles as an arrestor cable for mock carrier landings. Starts to get a little sore after a few sorties but I feel I'm taking one for the team.

I just can't turn around real fast if someone asks me something. I did that once and wiped out half the pit.:<

Excuse me while I whip this out!

The man's absolutely shameless!

I heard he has even strapped a pair of wings on it, and flew it around the field. IN FRONT OF THE CHILDREN!!!!!

OK, how do you do that to those photos?

That is really cool.

Obviously, you copied your own long green thingys and attributed them to Tom, but you were caught because his green thingy is longer.Q

Love your avatar J Rod! These guys have just butchered our field. It's blasphemy I tell ya, blasphemy! There is nothing sacred in this place.

Glad you're here Jared.

I remember Tom always made me pay when we had dinner together... but that's because he signed my expense reports.
