Thanks Ron for supporting the hobby for so many years!!!!!! The retail hobby trade is a tough one to have any longevity in or even to squeak out a little bit of a living for a while. Ron Lund (Through Rick's, Heliproz South, and RonLund.com) always has done a great job of taking care of customers and supporting & promoting the sport!

Sayonara my old friend. And I know you will enjoy your retirement.
It was a pleasure meeting you and your employees in person. You always took care of me. Never a complaint about late shipping or missing parts.
Hasta la vista amigo ;-)

Is it just me or do some of y'all also like watching Ron's one minute videos just to hear him talk and tell a story?

I have never seen his vids but it was reading his explanation of auto rotation technique a few years ago that finally made it 'click' with me and gave me the courage to go out and do them.

Haha, yep. I've hit his site several times a day wondering when the next "news minute...or so" will be. Good stuff...

Thank you all for your kind words. I appreciate it. I only get on Runryder occasionally, so this is overdue.

This has been a great career and given a chance, I wouldn't change anything. I know I was never on the leading edge of technology, far from it. I had several chances to step it up, but never wanted to lose touch with my customers.

When I played golf, I walked, stayed sober and carried my clubs. I always tried to operate my business the same way. It's the way the game was meant to be played.

I hope to attend a funfly once in a while. I prefer the smaller ones where you get to know everyone. I'm a life member of AMA and I plan on getting my moneys' worth

It's time for me to go make my News Minute Video. I'll still be here for a couple more months.

You guys and gals take care and stay safe.

Ron
