Since our last PPA Meeting, we've had a few interim gathering that were pretty good. Last Saturday we had the Aircraft Show & Tell BBQ at the Yellow Building, and almost 25 people showed up- some even flew in from Canada and Farmingdale! Although it was very warm, the canopy and building access made it better, and as usual, the Tower controllers showed up! Thanks to Mike and Bob for hosting it- the PPA made $214 from this event!!!!!!
July 28 we had an impromptu BBQ at the Yellow Building as well; that lasted until sunset and was a great gathering of local aviators on a calm night with a beautiful sunset. Thanks Nina, for suggesting it!
So what's new with the PPA? A few things- first off, the Message Board was revamped by getting rid of the categories. We now just have one message board, and should be easier to use. View it here:
We are also shortening up the General Meeting, focusing more on News, Local Happenings, Upcoming Events, and the Lesson Learned. The idea is to keep it to an hour, to leave enough time for the socializing that occurs before and after the meeting, which has become quite a phenomenon!
And one more thing- we are starting up our BBQ Events on a regular basis now at the Yellow Building at the Alpha Ramp. They will generally be the first weekend of the month, with occasional changes. Our next one is Sunday September 9th, and will be scheduled soon- see you there!
Don't forget, our next General Meeting is this Thursday at the Dutchess Terminal- see the website for more details!
