    A lot of grey hair there, and when it wasn’t grey, it was missing. There must be some way that we can attract younger members. Introduce potential new pilots to vintage gliders, have a tendency to be less expensive, and just as much fun to fly. A good way to hone their skills. Maybe next SSA Convention highlight the charms of the Grand Dames. Just saying………………Tango Tango is for sale.
