October’s Weekend Getaway:  The Great Unknown – You decide!! 

Alright, the hellish heat of summer will be only a memory.  By October 20-21, things should have cooled off somewhat; it’s time to spread our wings once again!  However, rather than have me decide on a destination, I’m offering a shopping list – your choice!  Here are four possible candidates.  Send me an email with your top three choices for our October tripHowever, please email only if you intend to participate.

Advance reservations required.

 

Starting 8/14, I’ll be out of town for several weeks (again).  When I return, I’ll tally up the votes and do some planning.  And, while I’m gone, your job is to simply decide where you’d like to go!  If you’re interested in joining us, send your vote to:  This email address is being protected from spambots.

Small caveat…  As is the case on all of our Weekend Getaway Flights, you are PIC and responsible for all aspects of flight planning, including (but not limited to) weather, routing, and aircraft performance.  The go/no-go decision is entirely yours!  As volunteer trip leader, I’ve reviewed the destination and will arrange a few details like transportation and possible restaurant (or lodging) reservations that do not involve collecting money.

An aside…  Remember that APA events like this are tax-deductible!  And, membership is only $25/year!  So, if you have a pilot friend who would also like to join us, have him/her become a member prior to the trip.  They will save more than their membership fee on the very first flight!

Blue skies & tailwinds,

Thanks Tim! I will add that fly-in to the calendar as well, and I'll let Craig know.
Take care,
Stef
