This is a reminder of our upcoming BAPA bi-monthly meeting for January, which will be next Wednesday, January 25th, 2017 at Vito's Famous Pizza in Sunnyvale. Note our new location which will be held at the same venue as the Wings of Rogallo monthly meetings. I postponed it a bit this month to give people time to recover from the Holidays. I hope to get back on track for the second Wednesday of the month bi-monthly moving forward.
We are also in the process of trying to set up the meeting online such that folks may be able to call in and participate remotely. However we don't yet have this setup at this point. I will send out another email with login instructions if we can get this set up properly before the meeting.

Come join the fun on Saturday, August 27th at Ed Levin!
BAPA is sponsoring a fly-in, picnic, and social at Ed Levin on Saturday, August 27th. Students, new P2s and P3s are especially encouraged to attend and come meet other newer pilots.
Although this event is sponsored by BAPA, you DO NOT have to be a BAPA member to attend. You DO have to have a signed WOR waiver and have your current WOR sticker to fly there. Otherwise just come for the picnic and social.
Also, there will also be a spot landing contest!
Here are the details:
When: Saturday, August 27th, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm flying. Picnic starts at 12:30 pm.
Where: Ed Levin County Park. Picnic Tables
What: Fly-in, Picnic, Spot landing contest
Spot Landing Contest: Lowest distance of 3 flights. Landings must be controlled. Crashing, skidding, butt landings, are not counted. You must land on your feet, but stumbling may be allowed according to the judges discretion. Prizes (TBD) will be awarded.
Who: All pilots, family, spouses, significant others, and well behaved kids are welcome. Newer P2s and P3s are especially welcome and encouraged to come meet each other no matter who you had for an instructor. Instructors are welcome. Bring the whole family and have a good time.
Food: Let's do this BAPA style - potluck as per usual, and BAPA will provide BBQ fixings, sodas, and water. Recommended items to bring are: salads, fruits, cheese, crackers, and desserts.
As of now we still need volunteers to judge the spot landing competition, as well as volunteers who would can drive folks to launch. Please reach out to me directly or post on this event if you would be able to help with either.
Please RSVP on the Facebook event, or by contacting me directly.
Hope to see y'all out there!
