Young Eagles Rally on Saturday, May 12th

Our chapter Young Eagle Rally is coming up on Saturday, May 12. And, we are happy to say that we have almost filled all our time slots with kids. Right now, we have 68 kids and 11 pilots signed up for the Rally. Seven more kids and we are full up for the day.

We have a good team of volunteers already but we sure could use a few more.

  • We will have a sign-in area where the kids will check-in. We could use a smiling and patient face (or two) for help there… having a bit of computer knowledge will help here.
  • We will have some escorts that will lead kids and parents from the check-in area to the waiting area by the Gazebo at the airport.
  • We need some more folks to serve as escorts.
  • We need a few friendly people to man an information table in the waiting area to answer questions and just be friendly.

If you are available that morning please consider volunteering for the Rally – we need you. Please click here and let us know about your areas of interest.

The BBQ Lunch also begins at 10:30 am in the waiting area.

Come out and let’s provide some youth with an introduction to aviation.

You may not even need a medical
