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

Chester Fly-Out Reminder

You’ve seen the emails and the weather should be fantastic for our fly out to Lake Almanor.  Plan on arriving in Chester, O05, at 10:00am and we’ll take whoever is around on the 10 minute ride to the Spongberg house. We will meet at the airport building. Paul has a second Suburban that we can use to shuttle if people come later. He can be reached at 707-484-3757.
Bring something to drink for yourself and maybe a snack to share or something to go with BBQ’d hamburgers and hot dogs. The Lake water temperature should be very refreshing, bring a suit if you would like to swim. We will have Cornhole and Bocce competitions so also bring your A game.

Oct 8 Fly-out CHESTER [o05]

Paul Spongberg just sent this note:

We’re looking forward to heading up to Chester and I’m glad you are planning on joining us. Give me or Gary a call Saturday morning just to let us know that you are coming so we be sure to get you a ride to the house if you’re late.
Weather permitting of course, we plan on arriving in Chester at 10:00am and we’ll take whoever is around then to the house. We will meet right at the airport building. I have a second Suburban that we can use to shuttle if people come later. I can be reached at 707-484-3757.
The Tobin fire south of the area has been contained so no issue.
Bring something to drink for yourself and maybe a snack to share or something to go with BBQ’d hamburgers and hot dogs.
There’s plenty of room if you would like to stay the night; let me know if you might and bring a sleeping bag!

There are plenty of chairs and seating on the deck. Bocce would be good. I have one set of cornhole that is up there. Swim suits are a good idea as well.

Look forward to seeing you there!
Paul
