Next Meeting - November 17, 2019 - Gilbert Airpark - 1:00-3:00pm

      Our next regular chapter meeting will be held on Sunday, November 17, 2019 in Ron Angerman's hangar at Gilbert International Airpark (SC45) beginning with lunch at 1:00pm. This will be our final meeting of 2019. By vote of chapter members several  years ago, we decided NOT to hold a meeting in December in order to allow members to enjoy the Christmas and New Year's holidays with family and friends.

     Further, this will also be our "election meeting" for 2020 chapter officers, so please do all possible to attend. Consider who you would like to be our chapter officers (president, vice--president, secretary, treasurer) and come prepared to vote. Jim Streeter is heading up a nominations committee, so if you'd like to nominate someone, contact Jim at If you prefer to call, his phone number can be found in our member roster.

     Annual dues are normally $20, but current members may renew your membership for 2020 for only $15 as long as you get them in by December 31st, 2019. How can you beat that deal? However, this meeting will be your last opportunity to pay your 2020 dues in person at a meeting, so we recommend that you come prepared to pay by cash or check at THIS meeting. If you are a new member who joined the chapter on or after October 1st, 2019, your 2020 membership dues were included in that payment. By vote of the chapter at a previous meeting, those of you designated as HONORARY members will not need to pay dues.

     Immediately after this regular TTF meeting, VP, Larry Philbin, will be holding our chapter's second VMC club meeting at GIA. He has invited guest, Jan Sqiillace, from the Raleigh, NC area to come speak to us regarding very successful VMC/IMC clubs that she started there. Although she owns a Cirrus 22, she'll likely fly into the Saluda Airport and fly in with Larry in his C152. So, even if you aren't interested in a VMC club, but are possibly interested in an IMC club, we invite you to join us.

     Planned food items are listed below. As of this writing, we need more tea, desserts, and bread. If you can bring something, please let Randy know, and he will post it below.

NOTE: We've now finished reviewing all 7 DVDs of the "Sporty's Instrument Rating Course" in the terminal building at 6J0. If you wish, you may check out the "backup copies" of the course, which are in the individual plastic cases. The originals are in a plastic magazine in the lockbox too. but we ask that you not remove those from the terminal building. You may view them in the terminal building as often as you like. However, that's our only copy, so if one goes missing or is damaged, we no longer have a viable course.  For a complete description of the course, click here.
