October Meeting Highlights:
Our October meeting was very informative and fun. Staff Sgt. Jon Kuehler, USMC, a Marine Corps Meteorologist discussed the Corps way of weather (as with most things military it is "similar but not the same") briefing and how to translate it into English. Jon is a Master Weather Briefer (not the technical name but describes his work) stationed at MCAS Beaufort, SC and has been in the Corps for 8 years. Thank you Jon for giving us the honor of your presentation and thank you for your service.
Due to rain we once again were not able to enjoy the culinary creations of Master Chef Bruce (burgers and dogs) but a large part of the group went to Duke's to enjoy some buffet lunch. Unfortunately, also due to the rain every baseball team in the Walterboro area had the same idea so while most of our group got to eat, there were a couple whom arrived a few minutes later then the rest and would have had to wait 20 more minutes in line to eat.
Our next meeting will be, Saturday November 14th, here at the Lowcountry Regional Airport, starting at 11:00 am. (note the time change back to 11 due to losing daylight savings time) Our speaker will be FAA Rep Wally Moran. Wally is a FAA flight examiner, and NAFI Master Flight instructor. Weather permitting we will be flying Young Eagles starting at 0900 (pilot brief at 0830). If you would like to help out as a pilot or ground crew for these flights contact Jeff Grigg at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org so he can check you out and get you set up. Afterward we will dine with burgers and hot dogs cooked up by our favorite chef. This should be a great time with good information, good food and good fellowship.
