The issue I have are most likely what Pete gave you, however they are 83,88,89,90,91,92,93,96 &97.

Brian, I've just found 5 mins to check the copy numbers, I'm delighted to find that I don't have any of them. I would be really grateful for the loan of them so that I can copy them, to add to the Whitesheet RFC history project.

If you send me a PM we could arrange this.

Thanks in advance.

Stu.

'Classic Corner' Roger Pullen 'Medicine Man', partial reprint of the 1983 RCM&E article plus a small scale version of the plan. I've been building one of these very slowly, just needs covering and radio install.

Report on the BMFA F3J Round 1 competition at Twywell in April, the first to allow use of winches with analysis of who did best (winch or two-man tow).

Piccie of my Medicine Man for interest.

Just read Peter Mitchell's "How's Your Luck?" article in the September 2003 issue. Having been very, very lucky with my own Organic, many times over the last four years, I can really identify with Pete's comments!

'Chieftain' 100" glider by Roger Pullen (under 'Classic notes'), Radioglide 2001 report.

I have the fourth Chieftain built by Roger, a very strong all-rounder. I believe the plan is still available, I need to build another as mine has quite a lot of battle damage now!

Hi Gary

I'm pretty sure I've got a "Chieftain" plan in my "used" box, it's either a "Chieftain" or a "Medicine Man", I'll have a look later this evening and let you know tomorrow, if it's there you're welcome to it.....

My Chieftain was Bright Red Solarfilm top and bottom, I used it as a backup to my Proton 140 when it was too windy for the Aquila 100" - ah, memories!

Regards

Pete
