Contest Crewing

This season I'm aiming to fly in three regional contests (trying to make up for some of those lost years...). I'll be going to the Region 5 North contest at Perry SC in April, then Region 2 at Mifflin in May and finally Region 4 South at New Castle in September. As of the moment, I'm crewless for all three. If you are interested in seeing competition soaring up close, crewing is the fastest way to get involved. All three contests will have an active social life after flying. Only essential requirements are that you can drive a stick shift, have a driver's license and travel well. Contact me for further details.

Soaring Trivia

For glory, not beer. What soaring movie was nominated for an Academy Award?
Hint: It's a soaring movie not a movie with soaring in it. The 1968 version of the Thomas Crown Affair won an Oscar that's not the answer.

Second chance to name that club member

Nobody got it right the first time. Have a good look at the guy talking at 1:40 in this video:

Name that club member

Who's the guy with the radio?

Kevin, Andy and Mike are not eligible for this one.

Breakfast meeting

We may still be a few months away from the beginning of flying season, but we began our fine dining season in style last Sunday at the LumRuss.  Fifteen cabin fever folks fell in for a fantastic feast of fresh fish, fruit, frittatas, and waffles.

Judy and Andy outdid themselves as hosts and chefs, but Emma, your sushi was a little bit dry, I'm sorry to say.

As usual, the breakfast was followed by the annual general meeting, which, as usual, was much less memorable than the breakfast.  Luckily, Diane volunteered to take notes in lieu of our club secretary, who was probably out preflighting his glider in Florida and not thinking of us at all.

Pending publication of the minutes, I hereby submit what I can remember of the meeting:
  • We have some money in the bank, assuming we still have a bank.
  • We talked about setting some personal goals for the upcoming season.
  • We admired a beautiful 2-33 paint scheme.
  • The Club Officers' mass resignation was mass refused.
  • Gregg failed to show up to present Andy with his prize.
  • Andy and Rick received some nice certificates of appreciation.
Some other things were discussed, but I guess we'll have to wait for the minutes to come out.
