A few notes: 3-8-23
- We had a RECORD
turnout today, at least for the past 3 years--total
attendance of 30! 25 Members, 4 Guests, and our Speaker dined on
shrimp scampi, rice, salad, biscuits, and soft drinks.
- One of our guests was Wayne
Reimer, a former Sertoman who moved to Texas ~8 years
ago. Wayne is now back in Fort Collins and is considering rejoining
- Remember that our meeting on Wednesday,
April 5th will NOT be at Red Lobster, but rather at Avogadro's Number
restaurant and will be a Celebration of Life luncheon for
Harry Santner. Avo's is on Mason Street about a block north of
Laurel on the west side of the street.
- Nate announced that the Timnath
Fall Festival will be on September 23rd and 24th.
They want us to sell beer again and also to drive courtesy golf carts for
them. Mark your calendars!
- Sam announced that his program
on April 19th will be held at Lightning eMotors in Loveland, so we
will meet there for lunch. They are located in
southwest Loveland at the former HP site. Lightning builds electric
trucks and vans.
- Our Speaker today was Jason
Licon, who is the Airport Director of the Northern Colorado
Regional Airport (formerly the Loveland/Fort Collins
airport). The Airport has been in the news lately because of its
plan to demolish a bunch of old, ready-to-collapse hangers which will
displace dozens of airplanes whose owners have no nearby place to store
them indoors. The Airport has been using a "virtual control
tower" for the past 8 years and has plans to build a real control
tower and replace the current "mobile storage building" terminal
with a real terminal. Landline Bus Service to DIA is now available
for a very reasonable price, especially when you consider the free
parking, no tolls, not having to drive to/from DIA, checking United bags
in Loveland, etc. You can also use it to connect to
other airlines at DIA. 9 roundtrips per day. We used Landline
FNL--SEA in January going to and from Seattle through DIA and were very
happy with them. No TSA yet, but it's coming. If you like
flying for free, United Airlines currently offers a 50,000
mile signup bonus with their Explorer Card.

address, phone, etc. for our Roster, please email them to me.
