Contest Updates. Playday this Weekend

August 20th, 2015

Hello everyone; just a note to bring you up to date on our contest plans and to let you all know, we’ll be meeting this Saturday at 09:00 at Signature Flight Support FBO, New Century Air Center to place the aerobatic box markers, corner sighting devices and go over forms and registration material. Once the Markers are in place, the box will be available for practice this Saturday until 17:00 LCL or until cancelled by participants. If you’re available come on out to help and fly.

Nan will position her trailer next to Dave Hayden’s hangar on Thursday, the 27th, at her convenience. Dave has agreed to our use of his hangar for electricity and aircraft storage if necessary and I’m meeting with him today to confirm. The IXD airport manager has asked that the ramp overlay construction (Phase 3) be delayed to accommodate our contest our contest.

Friday, the 28th and registration date, we’ll meet with staff and volunteers at 17:00, again at the Signature FBO. We’ll give our volunteers a run-thru on duties and procedures; specifically the corner (“line” judges) judges on the use of the sighting devices and communication procedures. And of course Saturday & Sunday, the 29th and 30th our contest will begin with the pilot and staff briefings promptly at 08:00 hrs. Any questions about flying or duties and volunteering please send me a note or give me a call.

New Meeting Scheduled for June

June 21st, 2015

Hello everyone. The intent this month was to have had an IAC15 meeting in conjunction with our play day on Saturday, the 6th of June. Since the weather didn’t cooperate in the morning that day, we didn’t have the meeting. So, I’d like to schedule a Chapter 15 meeting for June 29th, a week from tomorrow. We’ll get caught up with various projects concerning the contest and hopefully tie up some loose ends. There are some key jobs that still need to be filled. I hope everyone can make it. Just to reiterate, we’ll have a Chapter 15 meeting Monday evening, June 29th at 19:00hrs at the Signature Flight Support FBO, on the West side of the New Century Air Center.

Also, we will have a play day Saturday, July 4th at New Century Air Center. We’ll plan to have coffee, juice and bagels in the morning and brats and hot dogs with chips and potato salad at noon. The aerobatic box will be open from 09:00 to 16:00. IAC members from surrounding areas are invited to join us as well as friends and relatives. So, plan to join us for a picnic/fly-in/playday on the 4th of July.

See you for the meeting on June 29th and play day on July 4th:

John Wittenborn, IAC15 President
