Marin 99s meet on March 23 for Annual Meeting

We had 12 aviatrices in attendance to re-elect Sue Royce as Chair, Val Westen as Vice Chair, Cindy Pickett as Treasurer and Meaghan Bertram as Secretary.  Cindy gave us a treasurer’s report and suggested we donate some of our funds to a worthy local recipient. It was suggested, voted and approved to donate $1,000 to the STEM Marin/Pegasus project, where Gnoss Field Community Association is sponsoring the construction of an RV 12 with the seniors at San Marin High School.  

We discussed our upcoming Girl Scout Badge Class scheduled for March 30.
Barbara O’Grady and Sue Royce will be holding the class at the Civil Air
Patrol room at Gnoss from 10 a.m. – noon with lunch following.  This will be our third Girl Scout Badge class in the last year, where we cover aerodynamics, parts of an airplane, understanding a flight sectional and do
a pre-flight on Sue’s Cherokee 180.  We then take them up on the Observation Deck at Gnoss where we review the runways, taxiways, airport traffic patterns and radio calls.  

The Southwest Section Spring meeting will be held on April 4 – 7.  Sue Royce will be there to represent our Marin Chapter. Diane Root and Micki Jones represented our chapter at the Women in Aviation conference in Long Beach last week and gave us a full report on events/speakers.  

Several of our Marin 99s will be volunteering for upcoming EAA/Young Eagle fly days scheduled for April 20 and May 18.
