11:00am* Saturday May 9th
Lowcountry Regional Airport, Waterboro (RBW) Terminal Building
Major Josh Pugliese was scheduled to be the guest speaker at our March meeting but had to cancel due to Air Force commitments. We're hoping he might be able to reschedule for May. Major Pugliese is a C-17 pilot stationed at Charleston Air Force Base and he will be providing us with a presentation on Mid-Air Collision Avoidance (MACA). This should be a very informative lecture, especially for those of us who are actively flying. Following this presentation will be a question and answer period.
There will also be a short Chapter Meeting to discuss future events. Then about noon the grill will be fired up for cooking hot dogs and hamburgers. Please bring $5 to help cover the cost of the food & drink. As usual, guests are welcome to drop in, and for these visitors, lunch is "on us".
So, mark your calendar and come join us for this great presentation.
Also, those of you who placed your order for shirts, they will be available for pick up at this meeting.
*As usual, some members will be flying Young Eagles at 9:00 am. If you would like to help with the flights or ground operations please contact Jeff Grigg: firstname.lastname@example.org
