Movie Night at the ARC - Six Days, Seven Night- Saturday April 26th

The World's Fastest Indian

Robin Monroe (Anne Heche), a New York journalist working for Dazzle, a fashion magazine, is invited by her boyfriend Frank to spend a week holidaying with him on the island paradise of Makatea in the South Pacific. The final leg of their journey to Makatea is in a small dilapidated aircraft piloted by middle-aged American Quinn Harris (Harrison Ford). They are
accompanied by Quinn's girlfriend and co-pilot Angelica. The next morning Robin is called away to Tahiti to supervise a fashion event. She hires Quinn to fly her there, but a thunderstorm forces them to crash-land on a deserted island. Fighting for survival on the island, they inadvertently become witnesses to South Asian pirates, who discover and chase them. After evading the pirates, Robin and Quinn are caught, but narrowly escape by jumping into the ocean from a cliff. They camp next to the wreckage of a World War II Japanese plane. Salvaging parts from it, they succeed in getting Quinn's plane airworthy again, and fly back to Makatea just in time for their funerals.

Much hilarity ensues, and eventually the guy gets the girl. Join us for a fun evening that our spouses can enjoy, too.

Chapter 32 Events

  • We are hoping to set up a fabric covering seminar or classes later this year. Due to material cost and preparation items we may have to charge a small fee to cover items such as frames to cover and materials. I would like to keep this no more than $20-$30 for members. It should include basic covering as well as rib stitching. Fellow chapter members will teach this. How many people would be interested? Please contact a chapter officer.
  • We have a number of members who are proficient at MIG and to some degree TIG welding. Please contact Don Doherty on helping with other members learning to weld.
  • Volunteers are needed to help grass cutting once a month. During active growing season the grass needs to be cut once a week. During the dry season this sometimes drops to every two to three weeks. Volunteers need to be checked out on the mower. Cutting time takes about 1.5-2 hrs. Right now we have 2 or three people and need a couple more that are reliable. I would like to spend some of my weekends flying instead of cutting the ARC grass. Please contact Don Doherty.
