The 2015 BAPA Officer Elections are now underway. Remember that our ballots are done online now - you need to log in to the Members Only area in order to vote. (This is not a fancy system like USHPA uses, so just use your normal BAPA Member Login info.)
Once you have logged in, there is a link to the Ballot in the top menu bar, and also in the right-side Members-Only Menu. Or, click this link: Ballot
If you decide to change your vote you can just submit a new ballot - only the last ballot you cast is counted. Remember: even though all the current officers are running unopposed, please show you support of their willingness to volunteer for these jobs by voting!
Hello BAPA Members and Bay Area Pilots,

Please come and also spread the word, it should be a fantastic meeting. And if you are a new BAPA member (or someone just interested in BAPA) this is a great opportunity to meet other enthusiastic local pilots! All are welcome.

503 E Calaveras Blvd
Milpitas, CA 95035
Reminding you that the 2014 Monster Mash Fly-In is scheduled for October 25-26, 2014 at Big Sur.
Soi far we have a few RSVP's but please don't delay and let us know if you'll be joining.
This will be a family-friendly event; non-flying partners and kids are welcome. BAPA has reserved several individual campsites at Plaskett Creek for Friday and Saturday nights; Sites 25, 27, 37, and 34. These are all in the same area of the campground. See http://www.recreation.gov/campgroundDetails.do?contractCode=NRSO&parkId=70161) for campground details.
Saturday evening, after flying, we will have a Halloween party, with prizes for the best costumes, the best jack-o-laterns (i.e., decorated pumpkins, for those of you who didn't grow up in the US). Flying-related prizes will also be awarded as well as a MVD (most valuable driver) award. We encourage all of you to bring a bowl of candy (so the kids of all ages can go trick-or-treating) and maybe even decorate your tent!
The weather at Big Sur should be lovely this time of the year, with mild temps during the days and cooler in the evenings. The campground has grass campsites, flush toilets and running (cold) water. It's a nice place to hang out and it's right across the street from Sand Dollar Beach, which has spectacular views and breathtaking sunsets.
BAPA Activities Director
BAPA is obligated to nominate officers for the next year before our November meeting so that we will have time to elect our officers prior to the early December Holiday party.
I will then compile the nominations for the November 5th BAPA meeting in Milpitas.
