One interesting note on the ASP motors..................

The ones that I got from HK west coast on line store, all 4
motors (2 eah 25A II, 2 each S61A) had the polyamide (spelling) (plastic if you will)
bearing retainers instead of the usual metal ones most all bearing motors come with.
This in itself is a very nice touch.
And one other thing, all motors had a clear plastic type of rear cover gasket. One
should take care if you take a motor apart and note lose one due to not seeing it.

So much has been already said about the Bear, but the common thread seems to run though all our memories is that not only did we all love the Bear, he loved all each of us as much as he did the hobby, his models, or his dog.

I will spare all but one special memory of mine, it was when Doug and I were in the Top 5. He was so proud of us both, he leaned over to me and told me with an emotional voice he said...
"I don't know which of you to cheer for."

Still feeling the loss,

Curt

PS: Gene has already posted some of my favorite photos, I will add one more. A low quality scan of a photo taken of the Bear and me at the 2000 US Team Trials. One day, I hope one day to find the original photo.

I don't what I did to cause my post to appear like that. Try this.

Bob, were you living there when the a Navy PB4Y-2 Privateer (B-24 Liberator) over ran the runway, crashed through the perimeter chain link fence; crossed 27th Ave. and wound up in a vacant field not far from the A&W? My dad took us all there to see it sitting in the field. They towed it back some how and fixed the fence. For many years afterward, you could still distinguish. the new portion of the fence. We flew at Master Field, but later had to move over to a small grass field on the back side of Master, near the Opalocka Field. We also flew with a club in Opaloka, at a baseball field, at night, under the lights. I eventually went to the school you mentioned...Miami Dade Junior (Community) College.
Side Note:
Later on in life, I found out that Les McDonald and I grew up a few blocks from one another and went to the same high school, (He was a year ahead of me) served in the Air Force at the same time, stationed at the same base in Thailand and we were both Aircraft Structural Repairman, but didn't really know each other. (Always a year ahead of me) He didn't fly models at the time. I wonder...what are the odds that you, my dad and I, flew at Master Field at the same time on an occasion or two?  Hoff

 Wow too cool, Masters Field was our own private flying field until they put the college on it,  i remember when they put barb wire down the middle of the field during the Cuban crises you could see all the rockets and stuff on the other side. had many a hamburgers at the A&W RootBeer stand on 27th ave, one year at the Amelia Earhart KOI we flew our 1/2 A speed ships in the hanger while we waited for the rain to stop

IS that why I keep getting  beat, because they cheat more than I do. Layingdown Layingdown Layingdown  Really anybody that complains about the construction of a plane that is used for flying needs to get a life.  I have compared my built up leading edge for the S-1 Ringmaster to a kit original and the only difference is the weight.
