The guest speaker for our March meeting (postponed from February because of weather) will be Graeme Smith, who's in the habit of flying open ended cross country trips with a tent and sleeping bag. His title of this adventure is Triple Tree and Florence.
"It’s not the final destination—it’s the adventures along the way—that make the trip. Come see how I prep to camp under the wing and how it helped with one such “adventure” to the Triple Tree fly-in in South Carolina. How the approach of Hurricane Florence meant that cutting and running early to stay ahead of the storm turned a simple 650 mile trip home into a 7 day slog under the constant threat of 'Get There-itis'."

Our Meetup website can be viewed by anyone interested in our activities. (Meetup/FPA membership is limited to current FPA/EAA 1454 members and their guests.) You're encouraged to visit anytime, get an idea of what we do and plan to attend our Chapter meetings. We also use Meetup to schedule many Chapter activities, like popup fly-outs (the flying kind, not the baseball kind). For our fly-outs, PICs need to know and approve all passengers prior to departure. Since we have over 100 members in our organization, your understanding and cooperation is appreciated.
