We have a busy meeting coming up next week on Wednesday, with PIZZA at 5:30 and the meeting starting at 6 PM, in the Friends Building unless weather stays nice. This will be our Annual Meeting, and we will be having our organizational election for President, Treasurer, and hopefully Secretary/VP. Other topics include:
Jeff Drajesk is nominated for President, Jim Black for Treasurer, and the Secretary/VP position is open for nominations.
Hope to see you all there!
We have currently received $10,000 and another $7,000 has been pledged to be paid in the next several weeks. Please consider this opportunity to directly and positively affect a local student interested in a career in aviation or an aviation-related career (we need more A&P mechanics too!). Any amount of donation is welcome, and all donations are completely tax deductible - receipts provided. We have also just received, reviewed, AND APPROVED TWO MORE APPLICATIONS from local students! We will have THREE students in training, and that is real support by this group. We have also received a suggestion/offer for having a qualified Ground School instructor conduct training at 3D2, in our Building!
We are extremely disappointed to announce that due to weather, we will need to cancel tomorrow's Young Eagles event. We know that a lot of our youth were looking forward to this, and so were we! We will be planning a group event in early June, and we are also looking into a program where individual flights can be set up between students and pilots under this program - please look for more information in the future.
Most of you may be aware, but we have been discussing creating an area for overnight camping (tents only) for our visiting Pilots and Passengers. That is now coming to fruition on the North side of the North tie-down apron, and we can use some help in raking the topsoil and fine gravel, and also putting together the picnic table, etc. Let us know if you're interested in helping and when you're available.
