*****************************

THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC AND CHAPTER ACTIVITIES: During the early, critical phase of the pandemic, all chapter activities were suspended with the exception of Board meetings, which were held under state and CDC masking, social distancing and meeting size guidelines. On May 13, 2021, the CDC issued new guidelines (adopted by Nevada and Carson City) that provided for the discontinuance of masking if one has been fully vaccinated. The Chapter is following those new guidelines for its activities and, accordingly, is in the process of restoring all Chapter activities.

MISSION STATEMENT

To Encourage, Inspire, Motivate, Teach, and Train individuals, so that the aviation challenge of the future can be met with Skill, Talent, and Knowledge.

LISTEN UP BIG SPENDERS: Take a look at the Amazon Smiles block located in the right margin. If you run your Amazon purchases through the “Smiles” option, the Chapter will receive a small donation. Our motto: no deposit is too small!

January 18, 2022 – IMC Forum: Monthly IMC Forum meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month. The next meeting will be held at the Chapter House on Tuesday, Jan 18, 2022, at 6 pm. In addition to Chapter members, the forum is open to the public aviation community at large.

Jan 31, 2022 – Board Meeting: The next Board meeting is scheduled for Monday, January 31st, 6 pm at the Chapter House. All Chapter members are invited to attend the Board meetings.

Feb 2, 2022 – Monthly General Meeting: The next general meeting will be Wed, February 2nd.  There will be a potluck dinner at 6 pm and the general business meeting will be at 6:45 pm.  Bring a dish and enjoy the great food and the camaraderie of your fellow members. After the brief business discussion, our featured speaker at approximately 7:00 pm will be Punxsutawney Phil, direct from Punxsutawney, PA. He (or perhaps she) will address the long standing and very high honor of having one’s own day denoted on the annual calendar typically used by humans. Further, Phil will go into the methodology used for predicting the weather (a mere shadow?) and how insanely superstitious humans tend to be. Phil will talk about his (or her) special calipers that are used to measure subcutaneous body fat and how those measurements are an accurate predictor of short term weather (only a few weeks) and the direction of the DOW JONES Industrial Average during that period of time. You won’t want to miss this meeting.
