Movie Night at the ARC: Hot Shots
Saturday, October 29, 2016
From director JJ Abrahams, one of the minds behind the Airplane! and Naked Gunfilms, comes
another parody.This time around, Abrahams has his sights set on the action-adventure genre,
specifically Top Gun. Charlie Sheen stars as Topper Harley, a
maverick air force pilot who constantly lives in the shadow of his father's legacy.Unableto handle
the pressure, Harley has left the Air Force to live among a tribe of Native Americans. But when the
United States seeks to destroy some Iraqi nuclear facilities, there's only one man for the job. After
being coaxed back into service, Harley soon realizes that in addition to Saddam Hussein, he'll have to
contend with a rival pilot, played by Cary Elwes, and a devious aerospace executive. Among the many
films lampooned are Dances With Wolves, 9 1/2 Weeks, The Fabulous Baker Boys, and Gone With the

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.
