When I first got reeled into helping with Wings Over Marin (WOM) I thought it was just for planning and ideas. Well now that the theme is Women in Aviation I’ve jumped in with all feet and have lists of things to do.
We will have two keynote speakers and a panel of speakers for a seminar. The wealth and depth of aviation that women are involved is exciting. We will have two commercial pilots on the panel, an ATC, aviation attorney (Kristin Winter), and the director of Oakland Airport.
Because Gnoss Field has no parking they will be busing people from the Fireman’s Fund parking lot on the west side of the freeway. There will be 6 buses and we need a docent on each bus to explain to the visitors some of the basics and also what’s in store for them on the field.(speakers, seminar and fly bys, raffles.) I need 5 of us to be docents. Can you help? It will be a short job. Starting at 9:30 until maybe 11:00. Thanks so much for volunteering.
There will also be 5 kid flights being raffled off. They would really like to have women flying the kids. It would only be a ½ hour local flight. You could totally make a kid’s day! Give me a call if you and a plane are available.
As we get closer I’ll be sending out schedules of the event.
THANKS, THANKS, THANKS!
Let’s put our best smile forward!
Time for a party!
I’m casting out for a good date to get together for a summer party. You’ll hear soon! Lots to celebrate!
