Annual Meeting :

Arrangements for the Annual Meeting have been put in place.  They are pretty much identical to last year’s setup.  Plan on attending the meeting on November 12, 2016.

For the record, here are the details:

Batavia, New York 14020

The cost is $17 per person.  The doors will be open at 11:00 AM; lunch will be served at 12:00 (or so) with the planning meeting beginning at about 1:30.

As in years past, we will have room to display whatever tickles your aviation fancy.  In addition, you can pay annual dues easily at this meeting.  Bring Friends and spouses.  Finally, do let Brad or Ruth to let know you are coming so they can provide a head count.  The phone number is 585-765-9363 or send an email to windwhip47@aol.com.
