Movie Night at the ARC - Six Days, Seven Night- Saturday April 26th
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
Much hilarity ensues, and eventually
the guy gets the girl. Join us for a fun evening that our
spouses can enjoy, too.

Spirit of St. Louis Air Show - May 3 - 4
Spirit of St. Louis Airport
As most of you know, Spirit Airport is having an Air Show on May 3-4. The Navy Blue Angels demonstration team will highlight the event. Our EAA Foundation will bring Aluminum Overcast, the B-17 that has made frequent tour stops in our area for several past Fair St. Louis events. Posters for the B-17 have arrived on my doorstep this morning. They need to be distributed. Looking for volunteers to help.
Also, EAA32 has been granted grounds at the air show for displays of static aircraft. Looking for volunteers to display their planes. Our chapter will also have a tent and will be providing seminars for becoming a pilot, building your own plane, careers in aviation, etc. Looking for volunteers.
The next meeting this Saturday will cover our anticipated role, and signing up volunteers for the event. The show is only a couple weeks away, and preparations are in progress. Now is the time to help publicize aviation and sport flying to the St. Louis area. This Saturday's Chapter meeting will cover what we would like to do. We need people to staff the tent, support the B-17, bring their planes and/or project, patrol the static ramp, and be stewards of aviation. This is a great opportunity for our chapter to grow. With your help, we can do it. Without it, we won't. Please come to the meeting at our facility 1610 Grafton Ferry Rd (the ARC) this Saturday, and see what you can do to help keep our chapter on the forefront of Sport Aviation in St. Louis. We need lots of volunteers to pull this off. Think about what you can do to help.
Next Young Eagle Rally of the Season - May 10th, 2014!
Young Eagle Registration opens: 9am
THERE WILL BE NO BOY SCOUT AVIATION MERIT BADGE AT THE MAY 10th YOUNG EAGLE RALLY! The next Boy Scout Aviation Merit Badge Session will be on June 14th. Please contact Miss Laura at email@example.com with questions.
For more information on the Young Eagles program, please visit our Young Eagles page.
If you are interested in attending the Boy Scout Aviation Merit Badge, please contact Miss Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration is not required but encouraged so we have enough materials. Please visit the Aviation Merit Badge page for information on what to bring.
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.
