FAC-GHQ received this from Marcy Green (Orv’s widow).

Letter to the Editor:

In 2000, when Orv (and I) started GizmoGeezer Products, the business plan was a well-thought-out document. It revolved around the desire to invent revolutionary products for a hobby he loved. He wanted to share ideas and experiences with like-minded flyers. He wanted to be able to travel and write off the costs as business expenses lol. And importantly – it was about “becoming famous – not making money!” I teased him that he was successful on at least the second part of that last point! I think we came to the conclusion that, really, the best thing about GizmoGeezer was the wealth of friends we made and the fun times we had with those friends.

I’d like to thank the people who sent along their kind thoughts since September; the house has been pretty quiet and your notes have made me smile. I’ve passed them all along to our kids.

I’m also absolutely thrilled to let you know that John and Brenda Wiebe of Model Aviation Products (MAP) in Manitoba will be picking up the GizmoGeezer line: nose buttons (they are being assembled at this moment) and freewheelers (John has decoded the magic and has the moulds in hand, so watch the MAP website for updates). John and Brenda also sell balsa and model kits. MAP contact information is www.modelaviationproducts.com  (204-324-9741)

Thermals! Marcy
