Hangar clean up on Sunday

trimotorThe Tri-motor arrives on Monday, and we’ll be finishing the clean up of the hangar it’ll be stored in tomorrow, Sunday May 31. We’re starting at 09:00 and going until we’re done. Ken and Dick have been working in there for the last few weeks, so there shouldn’t be too much to do, but many hands make light work!

Membership meeting on Wednesday 20th

trimotorOne last reminder about this week’s meeting on Wednesday, May 20, in Tony’s Hangar at 19:00. This will be our last opportunity to address the Tri-Motor event, any questions or concerns. There will be a barbecue starting at 18:00.

The Tri-Motor manual is mandatory study for all volunteers, especially “Volunteer Duties.” This upcoming meeting will be a good time to ask any questions or voice any safety concerns. Obviously, the chapter is interested in making as much money as possible, but, as always, SAFETY is #1.

Help wanted…

trimotorWe had a good turn out at Wednesday’s BOD/Tri-Motor meeting. As most of you know, we have been setting up tables at various local events and retailers to hand out flyers for advertising the coming of the Ford. Most of these events are well-covered with volunteers, but we could use some help with the following:

1) 5/23 Lincoln Home Depot, 9am-2pm. We have two volunteers and need one more
2) 5/28 Rocklin Food Night, 5-8pm. We have one volunteer and need one more
3) 5/31, 9am. Cleaning the Tri-motor hangar. We have 4 volunteers and could use a few more
4) 6/2, Downtown Lincoln. …we have 2 volunteers and need 2 more
5) 6/5, Rods and Relics Car Show, 3-8pm. We have 3 volunteers and need one more

These are fun events where, at the very least, you get to hand free event fliers to unsuspecting passers-by, or, at the most, you get to talk about your favorite things… planes and flying!

If you are interested, you can sign up here.

Also, please keep this in mind – Dick Rupe will be in charge of roping off the area each morning, and removing the ropes each evening… it’s a LARGE area! The job is simple enough and will take less than an hour, but he could sure use some more help.

Volunteers needed

We’re still needing a few good men (and women!) for Tri-motor marketing events – handing out flyers and talking to people about flying – you can see the list here.
