The Grumman-GangThe Grumman-Gang are airplane owners, pilots and others who fly or wished they flew the so called "Grumman" light aircraft and who keep in touch by e-mail, exchanging information about maintenance, where to get parts, etc, and to remind people about fly-ins where cyber pals can press the flesh. People come and go but there are usually about 1000 active folks at any time. They have been brought together by Mark Matthews of Independence OR, who originated the Grumman-Gang and who pays for and operates the mailing list that distributes mail among Grumman-Gang subscribers.
Anyone who would like to join the mailing list can fill out this request form. This will add you to the mailing list, which will deliver about 20 - 30 messages per day to your mailbox. If this proves too much for you, you can use the same form to switch to the digest version of the list which takes those 20 - 30 messages and bundles them into one message which is delivered roughly once a day.
The same request form can also be used to unsubscribe from the list.
While the Grumman Gang may look like an organization, it is only a technological anarchy that allows people to chat and offer opinions and information. To the right are just a small sample of these anarchists:
Top Row: Michael Fairley, Pat Harris, Bob Dillon.
Mark Matthews, Steve Williams, Greg Amy
The opinions expressed by the Gang subscribers are their own and anyone acting on such opinions or advice is doing so at his or her own risk. The use of the maillist is regulated by a set of 'rules'; please review them.
On the right is Edna Young and Allan Ontko's Tiger. On
the left is Greg Amy's. Seen here in fresh paint off the coast of New
Hampshire, it's so fast that it required the photo skill of Walt Porter and
the throttle management technique of photo ship pilot Stu Morse to capture it
The Grumman-Gang is made possible by Mark Matthews, who is the Webmaster and provides and maintains the mailing list.
