    Default Contacting Sandy Sanders


    I am new to this message board.
    Actually I am impressed at how nice it is.

    I have never been exposed to air racing,
    or never created the opportunity for myself.
    Perhaps after this endeavor I will check it out.
    Sounds pretty cool to me!

    I have an 83 year old friend named Ben Garland,
    who is a race fan. Ben had a stroke about six
    months ago and is doing well, but is in a wheelchair

    He doesn't have access to a computer. He called
    me last week and asked if I could locate his old
    friend Sandy Sanders.

    Ben told me that he first met Sandy years ago
    in Alaska when Ben was a civil engineer and Sandy
    was driving a cement truck! I guess that was awhile

    Since Ben asked me I did a google search and have
    read up on Sandy and the Reno Air races. I feel kinda
    dumb because I lived in Tahoe/Kirkwood for three years
    and never checked out the races. Now I wish I had.

    I emailed back and forth some nice folks connected
    with the air races and they did not have contact information.
    One of the ladies suggested that I post here.

    Well, that is the story, if contacting Sandy is confidential
    please send me an email to:

    If not I will monitor this thread when I can.

    Oh, another part of the story is that it was Ben that
    recommended Sandy for the announcing job at the
    (once only) San Diego Air/Space show at Brown Field.
    That was awhile back, perhaps 1989 or so. It is
    too bad they did not continue that air show, I attended
    and it was great. I remember a behemoth Russian
    cargo plane that was so big it did not look like it
    was flying correctly, like an optical illusion, when it
    went by. If I remember right they also had the
    Concorde here for rides, expensive rides I believe.

    Well, that is my air knowledge.

    If you can help Ben out I would appreciate it.

    Last thing if you contact Sandy about Ben, he lives
    in Dulzura, in San Diego County near Tecate, MX.
    His number is (619) 461-7728. He is a great friend!

    That is all for now,
