    This year’s annual club meeting to cover general business and officer elections will be held at La Margarita Express. We’ll have a chance to meet the many new members that joined this year, provide overall updates on the club and our financials, discuss what we’ve accomplished over the last year, hold officer elections, discuss plans for the future (including proposed changes), and discuss other business that you wish to bring up.

    Elections for the Vice-President and Secretary Office will be held. If you have interest in serving on the Board, please contact any of the board members for more information on these positions: Isaac Mosgrove (President), Chris Eriksson (Vice-President), Joan Johnson (Treasurer), Alan Lasneski (Secretary), or Al Gray (Safety and Maintenance). If you know of special topics, proposals, or concerns that you’d like to discuss, please contact Isaac so that we can be sure that they are on the agenda. Although an RSVP is not required, please let Isaac know if you plan to attend so that we can provide the restaurant with an estimated head count.

    For January, we will have our fly out to Tacoma Narrows for some pizza at The Hub. It will be dark, so make sure someone in the plane will be night current, and enjoy the flight to the Puget Sound. They make a great pizza, and for the person not flying back, they do serve local beers as well. The flight there can be very beautiful at night, flying over PDX, along I5 to Olympia, and across the sound with the Seattle area in view.

    We are excited to have Kristi from the Salem Tower join us for this year’s meeting with the Tower at Sizzler. Kristi will be there to introduce herself and to have a general Q&A session. This is a great opportunity to continue to strengthen our relationship with the tower, to learn how we can work better with the tower, and to make sure we are doing what they want to make the airspace a friendly and safe place. Kristi is looking forward to finally getting to meet the many people that she talks with on the radio! This is highly recommended for everyone. Please RSVP to Isaac so he can estimate the seats needed.
