| Upcoming Events
15 OCT - Corvettes for Vets at the Red Oak Casino in Placerville, CA. Once again these folks have requested
our attendance at their Corvette show on Sunday Oct 15th at Red Hawk Casino. We cancelled last year due to inclement
weather, and they had only about 23 cars show up also. This has always been a fairly easy event, not a lot of kids, plus they
support us monetarily. If we can get 2 volunteers plus Curt, we can go. Contact Curt. Schedule:
Skids up - 0800
Arrive Red Hawk - 0900/0930
Release - Usually approx 1400
9 NOV - "Walk a Mile in their Boots" at Sierra College in Rocklin. Skids up at LZ Fritz at 0730. Event runs from 0900
to 1300 hours. We did this a few years ago and it was a good time. Lots of college coeds! Will do a Huey wash on 8 NOV to get
prepared for this and 11 NOV.
11 NOV - Veteran's Day Parade in Stockton.
18 NOV - Citrus Heights Veterans Center
9 DEC - Chapter Christmas Party. Meet at LZ Fritz from noon to 1600 hours. Bring your signiciant other. Enjoy
lasagne, salad, bread, and of course liquid refreshments. Please RSVP to Ken Fritz by 30 NOV. Email link here.
Besides the big project of readying the C-Model main rotor system, we completed a bunch of repairs and improvements in
2016. But first we must find a new home for our Huey and MOC.
We may schedule more work days to complete all the planned projects soon. We always need lots of volunteers to help.
Invite a friend to come to a work day with you. Bring your work clothes, gloves, ear and eye protection, tools, a lawn chair, and a
smile to do some sanding, painting, sorting and cataloging of parts, etc. Here is the basic plan (It will change as we go along).
Feel free to contact Curt with other projects to add to the list.
* Exterior shelves for speakers.
* Paint interior and repair pilot seats.
* Repair main rotor blades.
* Paint and Replace Horizontal Stabilizers. (We have replacement parts)
* Manufacture exterior donation cans.
Please contact Curt Knapp or Dave Anderson if you can spare a few days for this effort. (Click on names to send email.)
