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
Schedule: 10:00AM – Plane Wash Begins 11:00AM – Thrice Arounds Begin 12:00PM – Potluck Lunch ~3:00PM – Blue Angels Take Off
Our annual membership meeting scheduled this year in a couple of weeks on Saturday, Oct. 12th. Like last year its the Saturday of fleet week. There will be grilling, plane washing and maybe some thrice around if there aren’t any fleet week or baseball related TFRs. There will also be voting on next years board and then the usual prophetic diatribes by our new board.
Last years meeting was a great success with fleet
week, the blue angels flying overhead etc and we hope to have that many
people this year. Despite it being an official meeting, guests are
always welcome to attend.
Like most meetings the plane washing
will fire up around 10:30 with the grill getting hot around noon. Bring
food or drink if you want. We’ll be cooking out but contributions from
our members are always appreciated. Not everyone likes overcooked
burgers and cheap beer.
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!
