Corvair College #48 getting full

Builders,

Corvair College #48, in November at Barnwell SC, sounds far away, but we are just 114 days from it. We opened the registration 30 days ago with the link in this story: Corvair College 48 Barnwell, SC

.

If you are thinking about going, it is time to act. As of this morning 65 of the 90 available seats are already taken. Part of the reason why I had a record sales month in June was many of the 65 builders buying parts well in advance of the College, getting a plan of action together to build their engine at Corvair College #48

.

This will be the tenth Corvair College at Barnwell. P.F. Beck was the leader of the Barnwell crew, and out of respect for his passing in 2019, we did not have a Barnwell College last year. This year, Don Harper, P.F.’s compadre and fellow Barnwell aviator, made the command decision that we would hold one more College.

.

In previous years, we didn’t always have a full house, and when I asked individual builders why they had not yet signed up, I frequently got some variation on “I’ll go next year” , as the long running series of colleges at Barnwell had made some builders think they were some sort of guaranteed part of homebuilding. I have never counseled anyone to put off homebuilding, and I always reminded builders that Barnwell might not always be there….and last year it came to pass.  This year may be the start of a new grand run, or it might just be a great event, a tribute to P.F.’s contributions to homebuilding, and a rounding out to an even 10. If it has been something on your bucket list, do not blow off this chance.
