Thread: BAC TAC Banquet

  1. #1

    BAC TAC Banquet

    Four weeks from tonight, on Friday, June 20, we'll be toasting the tenth anniversary of the formation of Beech Aero Club. Attendance is starting to take shape. As a reminder, registration will end on June 10, as we need to provide the Beech Factory with names and addresses of those taking the tour as well as firm up dinner arrangements with the Marriott.

    As of today (Friday, May 23), the following have registered and paid:
    Rap McBurney (2)
    Cloyd Van Hook
    Brad Mitchell (2)
    David Stevens (2)
    Chris Linderman
    Dave Singleton (2)
    John Redmon
    Marty Vanover

    Others that have indicated their intention to attend are:
    Dan Kirby (3)
    Gary Boyce (2)
    Mark Weiss
    Bill Manhein
    Steve Powers

    It will be most helpful for everyone to register on the website and get your payment in. We don't want to leave anyone out. As a reminder, if you go ahead and register, then subsequently have to cancel, refunds will be available through June 15th. On June 16th the Marriott will need the final head count guarantee for the banquet.

    Looking forward to having a great crowd on hand. All for one!

    As we are staying pretty close to the field, why not just walk there? OK, OK, it is a flying club..... I get it.

    Marty, why would you walk a hundred yards east when you could drive five miles north and then fly five miles south and then reverse the process?

    Last time we were there the tower at Beech Field greeted us with, "Welcome home." or something like that. Kinda cool.
