Presidentís Message

Fellow Members! My thanks and gratitude goes out to Phill Horras and Earl Holmer for the excel-lent presentation on the Twin Starr Gyrocopter that they built and are flying.

This year's joint Christmas dinner will be hosted by the Ozark's Chapter and held at the Riverside Inn at Ozark, Missouri on Wednesday, December 12th (6:30PM social hour 7:00PM buffet). The price will be approximately $22.00 at the door. Reservations must be given to Nancy McClure (863-1828) by the 7th of December. In addition to our Chapter being at the dinner, the Ozark Chapter will have about 16 people attending. It ought to be a lot of fun. For the people that want to participate in the annual Chinese gift exchange, bring a wrapped gift in the $10.00 range.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Joyfull and Prosperous New Year.
