Quarterly member gathering with plane wash, BBQ, thrice around and celebration of Wally Johnson’s (former Apollo test pilot and former AAC president) 98th birthday with 3 touch and goes!
Date: Saturday, October 9
Time: 10:00AM – 4:00PM
Join us for a plane wash, BBQ, hangar talk and a view of the Blue Angels departures and arrivals for Fleet Week! Family and aviation enthusiasts welcome!
Food this time will be back to the usual meeting fair. We’ll be BBQing and hosting a pot luck. Bring your favorite dish and share your food with the piloting world. We’ll have some cold drink as well but feel free to bring you favourite libations if you want.
The election of the board is one of our goals for this Saturday. A member will be asking around before we conduct any official business for anyone that would like to join the board. This club is run by volunteers. It’s only as good as the amount of time people give to make it that way. We’re always looking for help with those that want to join in. Being on the board means committing to:
– Attending board meetings that occur every other month
– Discussion and voting on club affairs
– Interviewing new prospective members
– Owning a part of the club’s operations
– Ensuring the success and longevity of the club
– Inspire others to do the same
We’re going to try to have a thrice around (we have all the planes booked) but because of the airshow we may have to improvise. One note: This time in order to participate in the thrice around you must also participate in the plane wash. 😀
Location: Club Hangar
10:00AM – Plane Wash Begins
11:00AM – Thrice Arounds Begin
12:00PM – Potluck Lunch
~3:00PM – Blue Angels Take Off
Our annual membership meeting will be held Sunday, October 7th, from 12pm – 4pm. We will be holding elections for your 2018-2019 Board of Directors. This is your opportunity to vote for the next year’s board. Also, if you are willing to serve, please let one of your current board members know.
This is a great time to hear about the status of the club from your BOD, as well as offer any suggestions, or questions for your BOD.
This is during the airshow for Fleet Week, so we’ll have a prime position for viewing the takeoff and landings of the Blue Angels, and I believe Team Oracle, as well.
BBQ will be provided, and if you wish to come early at 11 and help with set up, please contact Ken or Andrew. Potluck donations are always welcome.
- 2:00pm Jim Hager will speak about his flight to KOSH this year with Will. Will’s son, Alex, will also be at the membership meeting. There is a stack of aviation books from Will that will be there. Please feel free to take any of these books home with you!
- 2:30pm BOD officers club status update
- 3:00pm Vote for new BOD
- 3:05Q&A. Pose any flying question for your Chief Pilot/MX officer/CFIs
I look forward to seeing all of you there, and swapping some flying stories! Please feel free to bring family members, friends, and aviation enthusiasts!
Fellow Members –
Just a reminder that our next Member Meeting will be held this Sunday, May 22nd (Rain or Shine) at our hangar. As usual, I’ve scheduled a plane (9UL) to be cleaned. Washers please meet me by 10:30. A BBQ, featuring all the hangar talk you could want, will get fired up around noon. I hope to see you there!
Our next Member Meeting is on Sunday, August 2nd, complete with plane wash and BBQ! The plane washing will commence around 10 a.m., with the BBQ to follow around noon. Volunteers needed – for info, contact our Membership Officer.
Please feel welcome to bring potluck items to add to our lunch!
See you at the hangar!
