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

Boy Scout Aviation Merit Badge: April 2017
September 10th was the LAST Aviation Merit Badge session for 2016. The Boy Scout Aviation Merit Badge workshop will begin again next spring, tentatively April 8, May 13, June 10, July 8, August 12, September 9, and October 14, 2017. Please check back in the spring to confirm these dates.
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.
