Jon Malmberg: The item that Mr. Steed needs picked up is the Bruce Goldsmith Designs Tala that just showed up.  I just finished inspecting the wing and this thing looks like it is gonna be a joy to fly.  Very well built, simple and elegant, and even includes one of the better concertina bags that I have ever seen
