March 14th, 19:00 to 21:00
Just like you would expect it to mean, our entire meeting will be devoted only to safety. This is a mandatory meeting for all squadron members. But that doesn't mean it can't be fun.
Dan McCormick from Champion Fire Equipment will be showing us how fire extinguishers work. The best way to see how they work is to set things on fire and put them out. This will be a hands-on meeting .
The uniform of the day will be BDU's since we have visitors let's make sure we look sharp.
The meeting will be held at Burke Lakefront Airport 1501 North Marginal

The following weeks meeting, March 21st, will be Aerospace education training.
I want to thank everyone who participated in last weeks meeting going through the Plus/Delta worksheets regarding the Cleveland Air Show. Thank you all for your hard work at one of the most successful Air Shows we've had in years, and the planning we spoke about last week will make next years effort even better.
As I mentioned at the last meeting, there is a lot going on, I will try to cover as much as I can in this e-mail.
I would like to congratulate the 4 cadets who flew this weekend C/TSgt Boazzo, C/AB Graham, C/AB Harris and C/AB Wiggins. 3 of them were on their first flight. Please make sure all of you who flew write a thank you letter to Captain Patrick Kelly and bring it to the squadron meeting with you. I will make sure it gets passed along to him. I also want to thank the other senior officers who helped make this happen, Capt. Summers, 1Lt. Boazzo, and Capt. Dennis Allen of OH-003, our group o-flight coordinator. A combination of bad weather, engine issues with our plane, and maybe just bad luck had left our squadron with no flights over at least the last two years, so it is good to know the streak has ended! (For the guests, the engine had a complete overhaul and is fully operational and safe).
As usual we have a lot of things going on in the next month and a half, so I'll get right to it.
