    Default 9th Annual Piper Restoration Seminar is Graham, TX Feb 15-24.

    I am a little late in posting this but here goes. The 9th Annual Piper Restoration Seminar is Graham, Texas is scheduled for Saturday February 15 thru Friday February 21st. I am putting together a schedule of events and will post that shortly. Some of the projects on the agenda are as follows:

    Mark Erickson and Speedy will be here from Dakota Cub with the objective to get the slotted wings on Cathy's Tri-Pacer so we can do the flight testing for an STC. This will involve rigging etc. and I will go over the rigging procedures for the Super Cub both published in Piper's service memo and real world with a digital level.

    Greg Campbell will be here with his Experimental project which should be ready for assembly and rigging prior to cover along with lots of little projects to do.

    Jason Gerard will not be here this year but there is a possibility someone else from Stewarts System will be here. Regardless, we intend to cover a Super Cub fuselage using the Stewarts covering system.

    I will do a walk around inspection on a Super Cub and Pacer pointing out problem areas I find doing rebuilds and annual inspections. This is a good way to learn the problem areas and what to look for.

    Also intend to do a tailwheel tear down, inspection and reassembly.

    Another thing that was suggested and I think is a great idea is to do a fabric field repair. Everyone experiences a stick through a tail feather or a mishap with a wing tip so I think this would be helpful as well.

    As usual I am open to suggestions and always looking for interesting things to do. If you have not been here before please realize that this is a hands on workshop with several things going on all the time. Some people like to get their hands dirty and jump in the middle of it all and some like to sit back and observe. Any questions don't hesitate to ask.

    Accommodations:
    Holiday Inn 940-521-9188 which is 1/2 a block away is $89 a night.
    Best Western 940-521-0190 is $77 a night and is a few miles into town.
    Both hotels are fairly new and nice. Please mention Pierce Aero for the disount.
    More to follow.

    Steve,
    Is DFW the closest airport with airline service? If not, what airport would you suggest for people coming by airline?

    Wichita Falls is closest but they only receive commuter service. Everyone in the past has flown into DFW and rented a car or arranged with others here to share rides. I can help coordinate rides if needed.

    Steve, don't you usually have a form for everyone to fill out for RSVP?

    Well shoot, my Daughter's Father/Daughter dance is right in the middle of that (2/21). Ugh! Some day.

    I do not have my Feb. schedule as of yet. But, if I end up with those days off, I might try to come down for a few days.

    I'm off the first part of that (Daddy/Daughter Dance the 21st and then call in reserve after it). Let me see if I can work out the logistics.
