Presidents Corner February 2007:
I trust you enjoyed the presentation at the January meeting. I certainly did. Captain Bly had
some great shots from the “Bone” and insider stories to go with.
This will be a hard act to follow, but count on some fun and informative speakers at upcoming meetings.
We just safely completed another Young Eagles event at Henderson in association with the
Courtney Children’s Foundation. Thanks to Dave Lerner’s efforts, we had a great turnout.
The twelve or so pilots that contributed their time and resources gave the kids a great time.
Charlie, Micah and crew kept everything safe on the ramp. And of course Mike and Jim ordered
some great Las Vegas weather and organized the fly-in in their usual professional manner.
Next event: Discover Aviation – Wings and Wheels 2007 will be at the Jean Airport, April 21st..
Call Mike if you can fly.
Don’t forget the Chapter meeting Feb. 14 at Boulder City. I plan to discuss our
priorities for 2007. We have a few ideas, but your 2007 officers really need
input from each of you as chapter members. Hope to see everyone there.
