Movie Night at the ARC: Murphy's War
Saturday, September 24, 2016

Movie night at the Arc

This film is set in the backwaters of South America in the closing days of WWII. Murphy, a sole survivor of a merchant ship sunk by a German U-Boat, makes it his mission to sink the submarine. He comes up with various ideas to sink the sub, which he discovers hidden nearby. One of them is to use a Grumman O-12 Duck amphibian and drop Molotov cocktails at the sub. The thing is, he isn’t a pilot, but teaches himself to fly the plane and tries to sink the sub.

Release Date: 1971
Running time: 1 hour, 46 minutes

Chapter 32 Events

  • We are hoping to set up a fabric covering seminar or classes later this year. Due to material cost and preparation items we may have to charge a small fee to cover items such as frames to cover and materials. I would like to keep this no more than $20-$30 for members. It should include basic covering as well as rib stitching. Fellow chapter members will teach this. How many people would be interested? Please contact a chapter officer.
  • We have a number of members who are proficient at MIG and to some degree TIG welding. Please contact Don Doherty on helping with other members learning to weld.
  • Volunteers are needed to help grass cutting once a month. During active growing season the grass needs to be cut once a week. During the dry season this sometimes drops to every two to three weeks. Volunteers need to be checked out on the mower. Cutting time takes about 1.5-2 hrs. Right now we have 2 or three people and need a couple more that are reliable. I would like to spend some of my weekends flying instead of cutting the ARC grass. Please contact Don Doherty.
