We'd like to thank Ray Hill for donating our doorprizes for the meeting.

Micah Froese announced a runway work day this coming Saturay at 8 am meet at the shed. Everyone is welcomed to come out and help maintain the runway.

Dennis Ramsey gave us an update on the upcoming Bahama trip in February and handed out some customs forms.

Guest speaker was Lt. Col. Don Lang that gave a good insight on what it was like to be a young fighter pilot during WWII flying the P39N and other planes during the Vietnam war. We hope to have him back again to continue on with his adventure as a Fighter Pilot.

Runway work day!

Fellow Whiteplains Pilots,

Several areas beside the runway are in a dire need of fill dirt. Thanks to the generosity of Jeff Cargile, we now have an ample supply of dirt to fill in these low areas. This Saturday we will have a workday to spread this dirt out along the runway, and plant winter rye grass to stabilize the soil. Everyone is invited to help. We will meet at the tractor shed at 8:00 AM, and start spreading dirt and seed.

See you there,

Micah Froese
