August 2014

Wow ... we had a great fly-in this past weekend hosted by Alameda County Sheriff’s Air Squadron. We had secured a great hotel at very reasonable prices and provided a good hospitality room for meetings and having snacks. Friday night was a kick off, rib-eye steak BBQ with all of the trimmings to include the freshly picked Brentwood white corn at my hangar at the Livermore Airport. Transportation team operated flawlessly getting people shuttled between the BBQ, Saturday night banquet, the range and the airport for the flying exercises. The Sheriff allowed us to use his premiere range which was enjoyed by all. I understand the flight exercise was well done and everyone really liked it. Our Saturday night BBQ was attended by Alameda County Sheriff Greg Ahern as well as local Congressman Eric Swalwell. Both had complimentary things to say about the Sheriff’s Air Squadron as well as other volunteer Air Squadrons throughout California. We had a great menu at the Cattlemen’s restaurant with our choice of prime rib, New York steak, salmon and a couple of other dishes. To get the real story, talk to anyone who attended the fly-in, I am sure they will back up this account.

We would like to have at least two if not three fly-ins for next year. We have a commitment for one to be hosted by Fresno in July, their traditional “Hotter N Hell” fly-in.  Hopefully Imperial or Maricopa will come up with a fly-in or one of the other squadrons possibly Yuba Sutter or Napa. Shoots are always welcome and we would like to have a couple of those. Please talk it up in your squadrons and plan on having more of these great exercises. They are informative, a great learning experience and a lot of fun.

Your Commander

Bob Tucknott
