DUE TO PREDICTED STORM, THE MEETING HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO JANUARY 27 AT 2PM. An Update on the MO Aviation Historical Society from Dan O'Hara - The January Kick Off Meeting will be on January 27, 2019 at 2pm. I wanted everyone to be aware that we have changed our MEETING DATE & TIME. The new date will be the third Sunday every other month from 2 - 4 pm. So for our Kickoff Meeting, this will be Jan 20, 2019, 2 - 4 pm, same location at Creve Coeur airport. (POSTPONED UNTIL JAN 27.) One of the reasons for the switch will be that if you would like to have a nice lunch, you can come early, as the airport always has lunch from noon till about 2:30 pm. This is a good meal for about $7.00. Of course, we will have coffee and a dessert type item for our meetings. The other reason is that some folks are unable to drive at night, so we certainly wanted to accommodate their needs as well. We hope to see you there! NEXT MOAHS MEETING - SUNDAY JANUARY 27th 2 - 4 PM CREVE COEUR AIRPORT Judy will attend this meeting to tell everyone about St. Louis Space Frontier - the 2019 Kickoff Meeting will introduce several aviation-connected St. Louis organizations. Remember, arrive before 2pm for the famous airport lunch! http://www.crevecoeurairport.com/sundaylunch.html
Geek out with us on the first Friday of every month at the Science Center! Learn the real science behind science fiction and mingle with others interested in the geekier side of life. Each month, First Friday features a different theme, hands-on activities, pub-style trivia, engaging presentations, photo opps for showing off your costume, and food and drink specials. The evening culminates with a free 10 PM screening of a classic science fiction movie in the OMNIMAX® Theater. First Friday favorites like public telescope viewings, a free 7 PM Planetarium star show, and special prices for our regular OMNIMAX films are a staple at every event. Parking at the Science Center is free during First Fridays. St. Louis Space Frontier's goal is to inspire attendees to think about the Space-y side of things!
