As you will read in the A/C News section this month, we welcome two new Antique/Classic Chapters; the first is Antique/Classic Chapter 25 of Sacramento, California. Their presi dent is Jon Schmitt. I'd really like to welcome this Chapter - there is quite a bit of activity in California from the Antique, Classic and Contemporary standpoint, and I'm pleased to see a new A/C Chapter forming there . Also, a hearty welcome to Chapter 26 which has been formed in Lansing, Illinois . Their president is Peter Bayer. We're glad to see this Chapter as there is also quite a bit of activity in the Illinois area . H.G. has more details on these two Chapters in our Antique/Classic News.
We have just completed our spring Antique/Classic Board of Directors meeting in May. Quite a bit of business was discussed there. One of the topics was your VINTAGE AIRPLANE magazine. Everyone has been very complimentary about our magazine and we continuously try to improve it. I may have passed this along before but this year six of the twelve magazines published will be color editions. As the membership grows, we will try to add color for each month, but we have to reach our goal of 10,000 members before we can do that. We are now right at 8,600, so we are moving right along towards our goal. I can't emphasize
enough that if you know of someone who is interested in our type of aviation and our airplanes, please encourage them to join our Division. The more members we have, the stronger we will be as a group.
The weekend that we had the Board meeting at Oshkosh was the opening weekend for Pioneer Airport. Saturday was cold and windy but Sunday the weather improved considerably - they were able to fly quite a few more aircraft on Sunday than they could on Saturday. Wisconsin this time of year is either very nice or very brutal, and the weather gods chose for opening day of Pioneer weekend to be cool and windy. Be cause my business involves mostly out side work, I have learned a long time ago that the weather is something you can't do anything about, so there's no point in worrying about it. You just have to go with the flow.
The Oshkosh Convention is really approaching fast! It's only a month and a half away. Everything is really shaping up nicely for our area. We may have some parking difficulties from the standpoint of a new taxiway that was put in the field, and the as sociated landscaping that had to be done, but Headquarters is working feverishly to minimize any impact it may have on us. They are very con cerned that our parking is as con venient as possible. Also, as we continue to go further south, it is our intention to also add another tram for the transportation of those people from the south end of the field to a more central point at the Fly-In, espe
cially those people with baggage, etc. who need assistance in getting back to the central area of the Convention site. Ifanyone has any comments or sugges tions along this line that can help us improve, please let us know.
One subject that I hesitate to say any thing about is any thought that has to do with politics, because a lot of people have different opinions than I do, but gi ven the current atmosphere in Washington with the new government it is most important that we all stand together as a group. H.G. also has some further information on this in the magazine this month. As small as we may be as a group, it is still impressive if we can approach our Representatives
