                                                COMING UP SOON

   This comes from Lyman Slack: A big change is about to take place in and around Gainesville.  Red Scholefield has decided that it’s time to close up his balsa dust factory as well as the R/C Battery Clinic and move up to Charleston SC. He and Marge will be moving up there to be closer to one of his daughters.  

    Many of you have met and known Red at the numerous events he has attended. Many more know him from his numerous magazine articles. 

    I first met Red and Marge the first night Marilyn and I came to Gainesville to meet with our home builder. Having contacted him through the AMA as an officer of the Flying Gators,we met for dinner that night.  

    As a very close personal friend of over 20 years, I will certainly miss him but I do wish him well in the next adventure in his life. If YOU would like to do the same, draft a sentence or two to him and sign it (so that I can simply copy and paste). I’ll combine all of your responses and present them all to him just before he leaves – perhaps as early as mid-June.
