Happy New Year to ALL

Let’s see if we can make it Half Moon Bay (weather Permitting) for New Years.

It’s been suggested to have Lagunitas as a back-up plan!

In any case; come by the PAPA Hangar! and schmooze!

PAPA Gala Christmas Party!!

Hi All,

Another great PAPA Holiday Party is nearly upon us; December 3, and this time will surely be one to remember.  We’ve booked the new ballroom/banquet room at the Petaluma Hotel downtown.  Newly renovated and all for just $10 per person.  We will have roast turkey and bring a side dish to share per the attached Party Invite flyer.

 In the past we’ve had around 100 attendees at our Party and this year we’d like to really make it a blowout!  So, the PAPA Board and Officers working hard on this event would love to see everyone attend and make it that one we all can remember.  And, if you have trouble trying to remember before you leave the party, or would prefer to drive home the next day, the Hotel has rooms available; all newly refurbished and ready for guests.

So grab your party spirit and help us all celebrate another great year for PAPA and the airport!  Till then……………..

Tail winds,

Boonville Late Notice (sorry)

Hi folks,

 This is the time of year that EAA Chapter 1027 holds an event exclusively dedicated to honoring all of our veterans, past and present.

 This year it’s the 5th Annual Boonville Salute to Veterans Fly-In, Sunday, November 13th, from 11 AM to 3 PM at Boonville, CA airport, D83.

 Back by popular demand, to provide you with expedited food service, we’ll have on hand two almost professional barbecue chefs to prepare an exquisite burger, cooked just the way you like it probably. With the great burger meal you’ll have freshly prepared side dishes, deserts, and non-alcoholic beverages to enjoy along with the good company of others.

 This is a great get together and opportunity to display your plane (certificates provided), do some hangar flying, and enjoy some fly-bys. If you know a vet who would like to attend, you can help us honor them by providing a flight to this event for them if you would.

 The current AccuWeather forecast for Boonville Sunday the 13th is sunshine with patchy clouds, temperature of 70 degrees, perfect!  Before you depart for Boonville Sunday morning you can give EAA Chapter 1027 member and Boonville Airport Manager Cap’n Kirk Wilder a call at 707-895-2949 and he’ll give you an on the spot weather PIREP for the Anderson Valley and Boonville airport.

 We’re looking forward to seeing you all again, and any guests you may want to bring with you.

 Happy Flying,

 The EAA Chapter 1027 Group
