…the Wright Flyer completed—should the propellers be parallel like that?

Jim is our coordinator for the display at the LEGO® Road Show in Baltimore next month, we still do not have a location. Eight members have agreed to volunteer for the event (there is a maximum of ten really cool T-shirts that LEGO® will distribute to the volunteers). Ah, there was quite some discussion regarding an international organization of LEGO® Train clubs. Kevin and Denise’s 1988 Ford Econoline van is currently under repair, as it won’t start. We hope to participate in an ornament building arrangement later this year. To support the display at the road show event, we will order a 3′×5′ banner.
