Fall Pot Luck and Annual General Meeting (AGM) - 23 September2023
Good day everyone,
I hope that everyone had a great Summer. We certainly have been blessed in this part of the country with some fantastic weather. Hopefully it will continue well into the Fall.
Speaking of Fall, plans are coming together nicely for our Pot Luck and AGM ON 23 September. The itinerary is as follows:
a. 1500-1630 at Canadore College Auditorium - you may remember that Grant Bailey has been on a personal mission to visit Wartime British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP)  airfields. He will provide us with a presentation called “The British Commonwealth Air Training Plan - A Legacy of Airfields and a Canadian Journey”.  The presentation has three parts, the history of the BCATP, his journey to visit the airfields, and a tribute to a fallen BCATP airman. Don’t miss this one, it will be very interesting;
b. Fall Pot Luck. Thanks to Ron Miller for once again making his hangar available for our Pot Luck meal. Tables and chairs, coffee, and tea will be provided. You will have to bring your plates and utensils. In addition, bring your favourite salad, entree, and/or desert and your beverage of choice. Supper will be followed by a short AGM; and,
c. We are still looking for volunteers to fill Flight 23 Director positions, including the Captaincy of the Flight. These positions are rewarding and do not require any big time commitments - as the saying goes, Many Hands make Light Work! Contact me directly if you want to volunteer, or if you want any information on the positions available. My contact info is or 1-416-271-5291.
See you on the 23rd of September!
