Help Needed

Bud Griesbach Injuries

Henry 'Bud' Griesbach is a dedicated Airventure Volunteer. Bud has been volunteering his time to Flight Line Ops for 28 years. This summer, while volunteering, Bud sustained a significant head and neck injury and was subsequently hospitalized. It is my sincere hope that we can come together to collect funds to help get Bud back on his feet as he will need several weeks of rehabilitation. With that being said, please consider donating to help Bud with some of this financial burden. Even the smallest amount is greatly appreciated! Go to the Gofundme page at:

Help Build a Home for B-29 "Doc"

The new home for Doc will be an interactive B-29 Hangar and Education Center. Your gift will help us finalize our flight plan. Generations to come will have the opportunity to enjoy and experience this prominent figure in our nation's history. B-29 Doc will act as a back drop inside the center for the public to enjoy bits of science, technology, engineering and mathematics that go hand-in-hand with aviation. Help build the new home at:

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.
