Sad news
« on: January 21, 2023, 01:39:17 PM »
Shirley Sheek just informed me that Ralph Burnstine passed away yesterday.
Ralph was a true C/L scale giant, on several US teams over the years. Some who teamed up with him was Jack Sheek, Steve Ashby, (not sure on these), Dick Byron, Chuck Snyder, Richard Schneider. Welcome any stories you have of Ralph, Cathy might like to hear them too.
   I first meet him and Cathy in 1971 in Muncie at Westside park. Both airplanes they brought to our contest were absolutely beautiful, Ralph won first place, and Cathy won first in junior.
Time passes way to fast. Praying for Cathy and the family.

Wow, a giant indeed.  So sad to find this out, c/l scale has been hit hard the last few years and now Ralph.
Prayers for the family from here.
