The first class started Saturday, September 20th.  There was a great response to the class in the Herculean newsletter.   Eight new students signed up and two continuing students from the summer will be instructor in the Fall class.   The new student will start on the Platter kits provided by Bill Osborne and the continue student will build a balsa wood trainer.
