Chairman’s Corner for Oct – Nov 2022

Hello members and do we have a few things going on right now.  First, it is time for our change of guards, referring to our Board of Directors.   We invite any club members who would like to join our BOD.   We are accepting names for our upcoming election this November 12th, I believe, this should be following Veterans Day which is on Friday.   We have the following positions if you would like to run for, they are President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasure, and Safety.   We also invite you as a “Member at Large” which you too would be joining our BOD meetings.   Food for thought, remember, this is YOUR club and if you would like to have a say in what it does, then join our BOD.   Thanks, you all!

Next on the list,

Renewal and Banquet……December marks that it’s our time to renew (membership had to go up $10.00 to $60.00 due to cost of living which has gone up on us too) your membership for 2023, and it might be time to renew AMA, before (unless you have a two year, four year or life time) you can renew your membership with SEFSD for 2023 and at the same time, get your banquet tickets!!!!!  This will be an exciting banquet at the Air and Space Museum in Balboa Park.  Your $55.00 gets you the following:  Entrance into the Air and Space Museum any time during the day and when it closes, you get to stay inside and continue to look all around.  At around 5:30 to 6:00pm we will start checking folks in and get your picture taken right at the “Spirit of St. Louis.”  Photos will be taken by Frank.  We will have drinks, just like last year, you buy your own drinks.   Food will once again be taken care of by Lisa, Brad’s wonderful wife.   We will have more of a menu later next month.   And yes, the club will have prizes, consisting of airplanes, chargers, and a few other goodies too.  Oh, how can I forget about Hats!!!!!  Ok, do not worry, I will not want to do that again……This year, Steve’s wife will gather the gifts for our better halves, giving Lisa a break on women’s prizes   Oh just one special note, The banquet is only for members of 2022.  If you happen to join as a new member before December, meaning remaining October and November, you get to come.  Join as a new member in December of 22 or 2023, you will not be eligible for 2022.

This will be our last Club meeting of the year, so make sure you come this weekend, we got Warbirds this weekend.  And I am sure Jim has something up his sleeve……We will want to thank Mark for handing our Hot Dogs and in preparing and getting them cooked up for us!  Thanks Mark!   Thank You Steve, for keeping our members up to date about the club and being our President for 2022, A Job well Done! 

How about our runway!!!!  Thanks to Quan (current VP, Steve M (current President) for placing down the “Dust Down” and Dennis for rolling the runway.  What a job that all three have done and Dennis, as always spending his time of over 7 hours rolling!  Thank you, Gentlemen!

Thank You Larry, I see the club’s Swag being worn by a lot of members and it is exciting to see.  I heard of some Tee shirts that will have our logo, so stay tuned for more news on that!

I am sorry that I have had no time to work on the DC-3 and my wife is telling me to get it done.  Guess I better get it off the kitchen table………It does look like I will have a week off from Christmas to the New Year, perfect for me to build and perhaps get the wings close to sheeting.  What can I say, but really, Work is fun!   But in the meantime, I look forward to seeing you all out this weekend at the field for we will have a fun filled day!

Thank You,
