Corner October 2005:
month ended on a most enjoyable note as thirty- seven Chapter members gathered
at Jean for the
annual picnic on October 22nd. The
weather was great and the food from all the comments was outstanding.
thanks to the Herrington’s for their organizing the bash and to all of you who
brought those great “extras”
that always bring a smile to us “dessertaholics”. Glenn Smith definitely had a smile on his
face, as he was
the winner of the drawing for the EAA Leather Flight
Jacket. It turned out to be a perfect
wear it in good health. Thanks also to
Glenn Smith, Ken Wyatt, Mark Dulany and Dick McEwen,
flying in their RV8, T34, and RV6As’
respectively, for the formation fly by display.
Vice President, Paul Gerner, ran this past month’s
meeting, which was enhanced by a very comprehensive report, by Sarah Metcalf on her activities at the Air Academy
at last summer’s Oshkosh
Show. I was told that Sarah is very convinced of the value of the Air Academy Program as a
result of her attending it and we may very well have acquired a new recruiter for this next year’s program as a
now many of you are aware that the FSDO has arbitrarily closed North Las Vegas Airport to all experimental
for the execution of their first flight.
The full text of their letter is available on the Chapter’s Web
you have not read it please take the time to do so and let me have your
comments and any suggestions
counter this ruling. Email your comments to me at email@example.com
. We continue to explore every avenue
us together with Dave Edwards, the Clark County Aviation Association and the
AOPA. Sadly we have
yet received any direct support from the EAA, but we are working to change that
you at Boulder City.
Please note the meeting date change to November 5th at in the terminal area.
will be a very short meeting to elect the new slate of officers for 2006.
(if you can’t make the meeting, see Mike Smith’s email for
proxy voting ).
flying and regards,
