Presidents Corner for October 2006

The Annual Picnic on Saturday, September 30th is a now a happy memory of good companions and hopefully lots of good food.  The Chapter at the same time played host to a contingent of nineteen Scouts for a new program developed by Charlie Braun and Jim Bonelli who did all of the behind the scenes preparation work.  It was a good run up for what has been planned for the Discover Aviation program scheduled for next April at Jean. 

The Air Scout Program featured several seminars covering engines, weather, aviation careers and a take home rib constructed on site by each scout.  A word of thanks to Larry Berreth, Mike Perger, Micah Braun for their skilled instruction of the youngsters.  Mike Smith had the flying segment under control as each scout flew one on one with Greg Rogers, Armin Tuma, Bob Doughty, Glen Carlson, Dewey Petersen, Fred Wilson, Roy Campbell and Mike Smith. The Scouts were treated to career stories from some real knowledgeable folks with enough career experience for a dozen sessions.  Thanks to Tom Donaldson, Mike Smith, Glen Carlson, Bill Tisdale, John Saylors and Larry Berreth.

The youngsters must have enjoyed the picnic judging by the franks and burgers they scoffed down.  All of us were treated to a flyby by Glen Smith and Co. and an aerobatic display by Mike Smith while digesting the goodies.  A note to next year’s picnic chair—make certain we have a tea bag for Roy Campbell. 

I had a brief conversation with Cecil Johnson last week and he mentioned that the hangar lease agreements were finished and awaiting some minor adjustments and approvals.  It would be nice if this is so after the many months of meetings and discussions.

Our next meeting will be at VGT and features Nevada Highway Patrol Pilot Sgt. Nick Sabino.  We will get up close and personal to the “eye in the sky” inner workings of the NHP including a view of one of their aircraft.  The meeting starts at 7:30PM with dinner for those who can make it starting at 6:00PM at the Town Center II on Cheyenne and Simmons.

Regards and safe flying,


David Lerner, President 2006
