Young Eagle Rally on Saturday October 12th

As a reminder, our chapter is holding a Young Eagle Rally on Saturday, October 12th.

We are just about full up with 75 Young Eagles set to fly.

We have twelve planes and pilots who are ready to fly them.

What we need is a few more volunteers from the ranks of our chapter to lend a hand and ensure the success of our Rally.

Our specific needs are for

  1. two volunteers to man the yellow kiddie airplane…it is a good distraction while older brother or sister is on a Young Eagle flight
  2. ramp escorts under the command of our Ramp Boss to escort kids and parents onto the busy ramp
  3. some folks just to answer questions from parents and kids as they wait for flights

It is a fun and friendly time for everybody and we want to encourage the fun part of it. Please, if you are able. plan on meeting at our EAA hangar at 07:30 to help move stuff to the gazebo area for set-up. We will have a briefing for the ramp crew and other volunteers at about 08:15 or so at the gazebo area. We will be flying flights all morning, and into the afternoon, with the last group signed up for the 13:00 hour. We will wrap things up at 14:00 and clean up…all should be done by 15:00 at the latest. Many hands make for light work so please lend a hand.
