    BAC @ Arlington 2012

    BAC @ Arlington 2012 July 11-15, 2012
    Well it's time to start planning once more....... and this year we need some special help.
    This year the Fly-in is scheduled for the 11th - 15th of July

    For the latest chatter, or to leave a post,
    REPLY BELOW HERE on this forum
    or
    You can also comment in the News Article itself.

    We have gotten enough commitment from BAC members to participate, that we made the commitment to the staff at Arlington.

    In years past I have pretty much ran all the leg work as well as manning the booth at least parts of all 5 days of the fly in.

    This year, again, that will not be possible. I am currently experiencing some health issues that preclude me from personally running the show, and I may be able to attend a day in there somewhere (uncertain) ....but I am hoping (read: begging) to get someone to step up and sort of help run the show for the BAC booth.

    Our own flying Dutchman, Marty Vanover has stepped up to the plate and has already expressed some great ideas and thoughts. Please stay tuned to the forum thread on Arlington for the latest updated and for putting your name on the list for volunteering to man the booth for a while

    Your help and efforts in this regard are well worth the effort. The rewards will be a GREAT dinner event, Attachment 392
    on BAC's nickel, Free admission for the first 5 members for all five days, that sign up, as well as making new friends or re-connecting with old ones. Your memories of the event will certainly be pleasant ones!

    I will be doing all the leg work, including the gathering/scheduling of volunteers and making all the arrangements with the Arlington staff, but we need to move RIGHT AWAY!

    They have been gracious enough to continue their "special" deal with us as far as the booth fee goes.... And the Executive committee feels (as do I) that it would be a shame to lose the momentum we have produced thus far by our presence.

    This is a call to action, last minute as it may be, and we have now committed with the staff there.

    PLEASE examine your circumstances and see if you can't make room in your schedule to step up to the bat. I would consider it a pleasure to help all the way till the last possible moment, in any way I can!

    Please email me at thom@beechaeroclub.org with any questions or volunteer offers.

    OR you can leave questions and opinions in this thread.

    Thom,
    We can't get there until late Wednesday afternoon, but Robin and I can cover Thursday from 11 to 3. Then I need get Robin home because she has to work Friday and Saturday. But I can come back and fill a couple more slots Friday through Sunday.

    I really want to make it up and help out and be there, I especially want to fly up there this year since last year the weather didn't permit, but with our new website launch and all of the problem we are having I am forecasting working weekends through the better part of July.
    Where has our Sierra been:

    Hey Thom.... thanks for getting this out there. Dawn and I will certainly be at Arlington, especially since we live next door. You can put me down for 11 to 1 all the days for now, except Thursday since Beckers seem to have that one covered. I'm sure we'll have our plane there Wednesday morning..... and remember, I have the banner and coffee pot!

    Sure would be great to see you there Thom! Lets hope the weather gods shine on this event

    Guys I'm sorry I won't be there this year. My plane is in Arkansas (long story) and I will be heading back there. Have fun. It is the best west coast flyin I've attended.

    Too Bad you can't make it. I am trying hard to make it for part of the event - and I owe you a big breakfast - Hope I can do that some day!!!!

    Mark & Dawn, thank you for stepping up and helping out. I REALLY hope I can get there to see you guys again. There are just some things you can't control - but I AM trying!
