I've had a hard time contacting vendors because of my schedule. Anyone who knows any of the listed companies or individuals please help me out by campaigning on my behalf to have them attend and participate. I want anyone who holds an STC, makes parts or products or does Navion upgrades to attend. No restrictions. I want Navion owners and mechanics to have the opportunity to hear from everyone in the market if possible.

I'd like to know who's coming and when and if they are interested in having dinner with us Saturday night. If you know someone that might like this information please pass it along.
