What Happened in Atlanta on June 13th

Folks…..

We had a nice turnout for the June Atlanta REPA Luncheon today…

No Program but No Problem!

We were able to entertain ourselves with jokes and such…

Amazingly the best two were by Keith Crosby who was not even there!!!

Standing in for him was your Humble Scribe, who quickly regretted telling the crowd that those two he was about to present were sent to him by Keith last night!

Anyhow there were a few other feeble attempts at humor; one or two actually got some polite laughs…

We did have the usual cash drawing but also had a Jim Whitlock color print of an Eastern Connie, donated by Virgil Tedder and a REPA Tag Frame, donated by the HS …

And the winners were!

$15 Tom Gray, $10 Curtiss Barnette, $5 Don Teel, Connie Print Bob Fuhrman and the REPA Tag Frame by Bob Drawdy…

Reminder for the June 13th Atlanta REPA Luncheon!!!

Folks….

Well, we had a great speaker lined up for next Tuesday’s Atlanta REPA Luncheon…

He promised with his A/V Presentation to “not put anyone to sleep”, as it is about Sea Planes…

But he had to postpone his presentation!

It is now set up for November though so mark your calendar, Tuesday November 14th…

Instead we are forced to once more entertain ourselves…

If you folks don’t come prepared Virgil and I will be forced to tell you some EAL PHC stories! (that stands for Eastern Air Lines Pilots Hunt Club)…

Come to think of it they probably are more entertaining than what we have been suffering (both as “Tellers” and “Hearers”) through recently…

As before we gather (some few limping) at the Piccadilly Cafeteria on Godby Road, just off Old National Highway, just south of I-285.

All this just SW of the Atlanta Airport…

It opens at 11:00 AM…
