NEXT MEETING: SATURDAY November 8th
We're having a special fly-out mission to the AOPA Fly-In at St Simons Georgia (SSI)
The AOPA is hosting a pancake breakfast, exhibits, aircraft displays, seminars, safety briefings, and lunch. This is something you don't want to miss, whether you're an AOPA member or not! Click here or the AOPA logo for details. Important: If you want to reserve a lunch at the event you must RSVP on the AOPA website.
Chapter 477 is organizing a Fly-Out to St Simons. If you have a plane or want to "ride along" in an empty aircraft seat please call Roger Medlin (843 549-2549).
NOTICE: CHANGE IN GROUND TRANSPORTATION PLANS
Lee was planning on providing ground transportation on Saturday for those that contacted him with interest. Since no one has yet contacted him, and an opportunity presented itself for him to go down Friday and stay over for Saturday, his offer of ground transport Saturday has been rescinded. If anyone wants to ride down with Lee on Friday (leaving Dorchester and Bacon's Bridge Rd around 11:30 a.m. RBW around 12:15 p.m.) still contact him at email@example.com . Also, if anyone else plans to drive down Saturday and can provide others with a ride let Glen know so he can put you in touch with would be passengers. Those needing a ride Saturday let Glen know so he can put you in a ride if available.
Also, our President Glen Phelps will be hosting a "regular" Chapter 477 meeting, for those who aren't interested on the AOPA Fly-out. Standard times (coffee/socializing at 10:30, Meeting 11:00, cookout 12:00).

Ed Horne, father of Greg Horne and a contributing photographer for this site won the redrawing of the July tickets for the Sporty's $100 gift card. Congratulations Ed!
Don't forget members. When you show up for a monthly meeting, you get a chance put in the hat for the next drawing (In December), which will also be for a $100 Sporty's Pilot Shop gift card. The more meetings you attend, the better your chances of picking up this wonderful prize. You can also purchase extra tickets for a buck each.
Whether your a pilot or not, there are plenty of interesting items in the Sporty's catalog of equipment, tools, publications, flight shirts and jackets, training DVD's, and many other aviation and aviation themed products. Come on down to the meeting and good luck.
