HIGH RIVER AIRPORT CLEANUP PLANNED FOR SATURDAY AUGUST 2017
On Saturday August 26th we are planning a work bee day at the airport starting at 9 am. This will include the following activities:
- Replace 6 broken lights on the runway and taxiway with the new tubs
- Gravel around the runways both east/west and north/south
- Feed the gophers close to the runways
- Level the north/south runway where gophers have made mounds
- Have some people work on cleanup of the club plane in our hanger
- Train people to use the new airport mower and cut the grass.
Jim and Bill would appreciate some idea of who would be interested in coming out that day. If they could email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We plan to hold a BBQ at our hanger at the end of the day. Families will be welcome.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
This meeting was held last evening at the Shawnessy Swiss Chalet. 10 members were in attendance and meeting minutes will be emailed to all active members. Not got your 2017 membership paid yet? Contact the Robert Monahan who's information is on the contact page!
The meeting Agenda will be firmed up closer to the date. The location will also be confirmed since there are renovations at the Elks Lodge throughout the summer. Monday July 31 @ 1930 pm somewhere!
Our Cherokee has been doing a lot of flying in the later parts of summer and is in need of a little TLC. Please join us on Friday Sep 16, 2016 at 5PM at Bill and Jim's hangar in the SW corner of the High River Airport and bring some elbow grease. Together we'll get this bird shining again!
Joel H. has been gracious enough to volunteer his time to give everyone a ground refresher on forced approaches. Maybe it's been awhile since your check ride or you've got a check ride coming up? Come on out to the High River Airport (Bill and Jim's hangar) on Sunday, Sep 18, 2016 at 9AM. There is no cost for club members but please bring a food bank donation.
Update September 16: Unfortunately the forced refresher training has been cancelled.
September is right around the corner and that means time for our annual fly-in! Check out the fly-in tab or click the poster for more info.
If you're not off to Oshkosh we hope you can make it to our next club meeting on Monday July 25 at 7:30pm. The meeting will be held at the usual venue (Okotoks Elks Club). Come share your summer flying stories!
