September Monthly Meeting

Hi all,

Don't forget, our next meeting is this coming Thursday, September 27th, at 6 pm. We now have a meeting location - Ken Rice's hangar. His address is 1302 W Aviator Circle. The topic of the night is still ultralights, but we'll also be discussing the upcoming airport open house to be held on Saturday, October 6th.  Feel free to bring snacks if you desire.

In addition, a new topic has come up based on information received from EAA headquarters. Originally announced at AirVenture back in July, EAA's "Flying Start" program is now officially launched. See the attached letter for more information. We've been talking about some way to start that program here, so Tom West, our president, is going to bring that up on Thursday. There seems to be interest in restarting flight training here and this may be the means to do that.

See you all Thursday. We plan to start the meeting precisely at 6 pm since Tom needs to leave by 7:30 to go to work! Thanks.

September Wednesday Fly-out

We had another great fly out this past Wednesday, this time to San Carlos Apache airport outside of Globe. We ate breakfast at the casino across the street from the airport. We wish more people could have attended but even so, we had a total of seven members and one guest. Here are some photos of the happy breakfast folks!
Dale and Kandis showed up right after the first photo was taken, so we took another to make sure they got included. Remember, we fly out somewhere for breakfast or lunch the first Wednesday of the month. We'll let you know where we plan to go in October.
