November 2007


Good to see everyone who attended the Chapter picnic at Jean on 10/20.  We had a great time with plenty of Dave’s

excellent cooking, lots of tasty side dishes by the group, and wonderful site prep by Tom Donaldson and crew. 

I for one went home for a Saturday afternoon nap. 


The wind was just enough of a challenge that we ate inside the terminal building, but the weather was really cooperating

in all other respects.  Thanks to Tom for the option.  We missed Mike’s aero demonstration due to conditions,

but hopefully next year we can book a date earlier to facilitate more outdoor activities. 


Our next meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, November 14 at Glenn Smith’s hangar at Boulder City.  As you should

know by now, our Young Eagles event and meeting scheduled for November 3 was canceled due to conflicts with airport

improvements and commercial activities.  This will be one of the prime topics for discussion at our November 14th meeting at 61B.


Lastly, our December meeting has been rescheduled for Friday December 14 at the Henderson Terminal building. 

We have an excellent speaker scheduled to tell the story of his LongEZ trip from Holland to Johannesburg, South Africa.

Ray McCrea will be flying his LongEZ from Livermore, CA to Henderson to entertain us with his story and exceptional photos. 

Ray is a respiratory therapist by profession, but is an accomplished photographer as well.  Don’t miss this one!


See you there,


Terry Frazier

Chapter 1300 President
