Ed Rogers Open House
7 August 2011
For years our group has enjoyed open houses a Rollie Gaucher's shop in Spencer MA. Ed decided he would like to have one of his own and set 7 August as the date. The turnout was light (the usual suspects as it were) but those in attendance had a fine time even though the weather was quite foul. I drove up from S.E. CT through off and on rain and drizzle but when I got to Ed's the skies opened and I had to sit in the car for maybe five minutes before ti slacked off enough to make the short dash into Ed's garage. Seeing his shop and the work he accomplishes in it was well worth the trip however.
This is what happens when the camera bag is in front of the A/C vent in the car and then you get out into 1000% humidity.

Another of Ed's hobbies is R/C model planes. I recognized these tow from my years in the hobby (long, long ago) as varients of the Ugly-Stik planes that were popular some forty years back.
