Presidents Corner for October 2006
The Annual Picnic on Saturday, September
30th is a now a happy memory of good companions and hopefully lots of good food. The Chapter at the same time played host to a
contingent of nineteen Scouts for a new program developed by Charlie Braun and
Jim Bonelli who did all of the behind the scenes
preparation work. It was a good run up
for what has been planned for the Discover Aviation program scheduled for next
April at Jean.
The Air Scout Program featured several
seminars covering engines, weather, aviation careers and a take home rib
constructed on site by each scout. A
word of thanks to Larry Berreth, Mike Perger, Micah Braun for their skilled instruction of the
youngsters. Mike Smith had the flying
segment under control as each scout flew one on one with Greg Rogers, Armin Tuma, Bob Doughty, Glen
Carlson, Dewey Petersen, Fred Wilson, Roy Campbell and Mike Smith. The Scouts
were treated to career stories from some real knowledgeable folks with enough
career experience for a dozen sessions.
Thanks to Tom Donaldson, Mike Smith, Glen Carlson, Bill Tisdale, John Saylors and Larry Berreth.
The youngsters must have enjoyed the
picnic judging by the franks and burgers they scoffed down. All of us were treated to a flyby by Glen
Smith and Co. and an aerobatic display by Mike Smith while digesting the
goodies. A note to
next year’s picnic chair—make certain we have a tea bag for Roy
I had a brief conversation with Cecil
Johnson last week and he mentioned that the hangar lease agreements were
finished and awaiting some minor adjustments and approvals. It would be nice if this is so after the many
months of meetings and discussions.
Our next meeting will be at VGT and
features Nevada Highway Patrol Pilot Sgt. Nick Sabino. We will get up close and personal to the “eye
in the sky” inner workings of the NHP including a view of one of their
aircraft. The meeting starts at 7:30PM
with dinner for those who can make it starting at 6:00PM at the Town Center II
on Cheyenne and Simmons.
Regards and safe flying,
David Lerner, President 2006
