President: Rich Staley -Vice-president: Tim McDermott-Secretary: June Williams-Treasurer: Marty Young- Directors: Paul Broome,
Peter Bass, Pam Ratliff, Al St. Germain, Jim Root, Penrod Turk, and Past Presidents.

We could summarize December's dinner meeting by simply saying, "A great time was had by all." But, that wouldn't describe the beautiful setting at Stephenson's, the wonderful meal and service arranged by June Williams, the place cards courtesy of Penrod Turk, Theda Benningfield's incomparable invocation, and of course, Marty Young's handling of the many reservations. And, with some of the nicest people I know at each table, we had the makings of a wonderful time to celebrate the beauty of the holy seasons of Hanukkah and Christmas. Fortunately, only a few people were deterred by the seven inch snowfall and slippery roads, but the white carpet seemed well-timed and appropriate for our soirée. Al St. Germain

In 1996 there were 1,907 General Aviation (GA) accidents. Of all these accidents, only 2 involved pilots who had participated in the WINGS program during the previous 12 months! Each accident had an average cost of $30,000 dollars. Just looking at this information, isn't it worth the 3 flying hours and a safety meeting to avoid a costly accident? Participate in the WINGS program. It's better than a BFR

WINGS - Congratulations to Joe Boyles, Phase X, Kevin Knapp, Phase II, Bob Williams, Phase II, and anyone completing their WINGS in the last few months. Remember, send a copy of your certificate to the Chapter Wings Officer, Penrod Turk at 4 West 112th Street, Kansas City, MO 64114.
