April 2010 Chairman’s Note

Dear Members and Section Friends,

The winter snow lasted just long enough to complete the Clean Snowmobile Challenge. Congratulations to the Milwaukee Section chapters who participated in the competition.

Many thanks to Helmut Keidl and Midwest Composite Technologies for hosting a fantastic Section meeting. Their “Case Study” was a great example of how to create scale models based on full size designs. We appreciate Helmut’s support of the Milwaukee Section.
