Good to see everyone who attended the Chapter picnic at Jean
on 10/20. We had a great time with
plenty of Dave’s
excellent cooking, lots of tasty side dishes by the group,
and wonderful site prep by Tom Donaldson and crew.
I for one went home for a Saturday afternoon nap.
The wind was just enough of a challenge that we ate inside
the terminal building, but the weather was really cooperating
in all other respects.
Thanks to Tom for the option. We
missed Mike’s aero demonstration due to conditions,
but hopefully next year we can book a date earlier to
facilitate more outdoor activities.
Our next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, November 14 at
Glenn Smith’s hangar at Boulder
City. As you should
know by now, our Young Eagles event and meeting scheduled
for November 3 was canceled due to conflicts with airport
improvements and commercial activities. This will be one of the prime topics for
discussion at our November 14th meeting at 61B.
Lastly, our December meeting has been rescheduled for Friday
December 14 at the Henderson Terminal building.
We have an excellent speaker scheduled to tell the story of
his LongEZ trip from Holland to Johannesburg, South Africa.
Ray McCrea will be flying his LongEZ from Livermore,
CA to Henderson
to entertain us with his story and exceptional photos.
Ray is a respiratory therapist by profession, but is an
accomplished photographer as well. Don’t
miss this one!
See you there,
