Oh, I've had my L2 from earlier this year, have had my L1 since back in 2011
and been flying medium power since 2004ish with AARG (Austin) where the
president of TRA Stu Barret flies. Fun guys.
Sorry, but it was a fairly small turn out and no one was able to video.
However, I did get the slides and can share that out as soon as I get back to
work (they're on my work laptop).
