    <<Taken from Bill's Obituary>>

    William Ludwig
    Bill's Prop Shop
    7464 Old Moro
    Moro, IL
    We are saddened by Bill Ludwig
    passing away after a lingering illness.
    He was a charter member of the National
    Marine Propeller Association.
    He gave the his wealth of knowledge
    and his support to the NMPA, he was
    one of two members awarded the
    NMPA’s Life Member award. In addition
    to his many achievements, he
    was the primary preparation and final
    examination station for the NMPA’s
    Certification program and was looked
    upon as a source of information to
    NMPA members. Bill always had a
    “back pack” of jokes and stories that
    he shared with the members while in
    attendance at the annual NMPA Convention.
    Bill was never satisfied with
    being number two in any thing that
    he was a part of. He was also shared
    the distinction of being one of first
    two members to be certified in Aluminum
    and Stainless Steel propeller
    repair. We will certainly miss Bill.

    Do the ever present escalating costs of presenting our annual National Marine Propeller Association Convention

    We are raising the individual convention fee by $ 5.00 to $ 225.00

    and our Exhibitors by $ 25.00 per table

    I regret raising anything but we have absorbed a small increase every year for the past 5 years or more.

    We have not raised the membership dues for a number of years. Hence we must raise by $ 5.00 also to $ 225.00

    We feel that this small increase will offset the additional cost

    and turn a “Red Ink” problem to “Black Ink” solution.  Thank you for your support.  Let me know if anyone has any questions or concerns.  Either e-mail ( or call 616-235-6672

    Sincerely Don
