9 NOV -  Huey Wash at LZ Fritz. Time TBD.

10 NOV - Veterans Day at  the Village Barber Shop in Stockton. Like last year, a fly over, BBQ, too many visitors to count,
and HUGE donations (last year it exceeded $1500 and with $1200/yr for pickup insurance this was a wonderful donation).



Huey Maintenance
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.

Truck:
* Install a solar powered battery trickle charger.  Have the parts, juts need the time.

Huey:
* Repair bench seat.  The material is torn and we are looking for a replacement or repair
* Paint interior.
* Repair main rotor blades.
* Paint and Replace Horizontal Stabilizers. (We have replacement parts)
* Manufacture exterior donation cans.


Please contact
Ken Fritz or Dave Anderson if you can spare a few days for this effort.  (Click on names to send email.)
