    VSA Winter Seminar Series Schedule - 2016/2017

    Well, it's getting darker earlier these days, the mornings are brisk, and pilots are making wave flights. That can only mean one thing - fall has arrived and winter is nearly upon us. So it must be time again to start planning this year's VSA Winter Seminar Series! We currently have two speakers arranged and one date firmly planned and I am working to round out the rest of the schedule. But I wanted to start this thread before the schedule is complete so folks can put the first seminar on their calendars early, as this is also the date of the VSA Holiday Party. And we all know how everyone's December schedules tend to fill up fast!

    So here's what we currently have arranged:

    Seminar #1 - NEW DATE - January 28, 2017 - VSA Holiday Dinner and speaker Pete Alexander
    Seminar #2 - February TBD, 2017 -
    Seminar #3 - March TBD, 2017 - Kempton Izuno

    I'll update this thread with more details as they become available. In addition, keep an eye on the forum for Cora's posts with the specifics of each event.

    Thanks to Pat for organizing the dates, speakers, and details on the seminar series. There is quite a bit of time involved in coordinating all of the details involved in putting this series together, and your time and expertise are appreciated, Pat!

    The holiday dinner will be a traditional winter feast, so come early and fly, bring your appetites and soaring stories to share.

    Looking forward to getting together with everyone again!

    BTW - Don't forget to RSVP for a tow if you want to fly - tow pilots need some advance notice to plan their days
