I would imagine there are some skis and tennis rackets stashed away SOMEwhere around there.

"We" don't have the vast history in composite racket manufacturing like our Euro friends; but, I can imagine some stockpiles of Head, Wilson, Dunlop, Davis(may have been 'discovered' already) or even Spalding frames are behind some locked door...collecting dust...waiting to be discovered .
I live in Maine, but no where is near Van Buren. Its 6 hours from Portland, Maine's biggest city. I would like to see the area and the Aegis plant someday, though, to see where all the old frames were produced.
