St. Louis Chapter Annual Picnic
You are invited to join us for our annual chapter picnic! This year it is at a different location, but will be as much fun as always!
This year the picnic will be a drive in/fly in at the St. Louis Air & Space Museum at the Downtown St. Louis Airport (KCPS located in Cahokia, IL). Plan to arrive at 11 AM and eat at noon. Cost is $10. We will have the opportunity to explore the museum, the aircraft and the simulators! We do need to know if you are coming - please contact Margie Doias by Wednesday, 7/31/13 at 314.487.8526 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. See YOU there!
August Flyouts - We have 2 flyouts planned for August! The chapter picnic is the first one. If you are flying just tell the tower that you are going to the museum and they will direct you to a parking area close to the museum. If you are driving, take the Poplar St Bridge to IL Route 3 South, stay on Rt 3 taking a left on Jerome Lane, and then a left on Vector Dr right after the RR tracks. The parking lot will be on your right in front of a walk in gate to the museum which is in the second hangar bilding.
The Second flyout is scheduled for August 24, 2013 to Bolivar, MO airport (M17). Plan to arrive at 11 AM for lunch at the hangar cafe on the field!
