Ouch, I look at the last date I did this and it's shameful! My time after work has been spent in working on maintenance and in meetings for the hangar. No excuse I know, but I SHOULD be able to update everyone more frequently with maintenance coming to a close.
Down to business. We are just starting to ramp up our flying and fundraising season. We have had our first even, the garage sale, and our first airshow, the Doolittle Reunion. Both were a huge success, and were so due to the dedication and hard work of our membership!
The hangar updates, being done with the funds made available with the bonding bill, is being worked out with the City of South St. Paul. Once we have reached an agreement for our lease, we will move forward with upgrading the hangar. We very much look forward to the day we begin construction!
In the next few weeks we have a number of activities, airshows, and prep-work to get done. The dance is coming up, and our goal is to have a beefed up marketing campaign, getting the word out to as many people as we can, and bringing in crowds which will hopefully exceed our expectations. If you would like to help us prepare for the dance, contact Amy Lauria!
Information that I received while writing this... After the St. Joseph's Airshow in MO, the P-51C "Tuskegee Airmen" will return with "Miss Mitchell". According to my sources, the Mustang will be home for a couple of weeks, then back on the road. Be sure to stop by!
