        Sky Soaring Holiday Dinner – Reminder – RSVP By 11/1

        I have reserved Saturday, December 2nd (5:00 pm – 8:00 pm) for Sky Soaring.  This is the same location that Dale hosted the dinner pre-Covid.  The address is: 1 Tournament Drive North, Hawthorn Woods, IL 60047.  I made a $500 deposit to hold the date back in June.

        I am working with the banquets manager to keep the per person cost close to the same level as last time.  It should be doable, but food inflation over the last 3-4 years will be a factor.  The last dinner was $55 per person and that is what we are targeting.  We will do a similar setup as before with a buffet layout and a cash bar.

        During the summer, the holidays seemed far off and many could not commit so far out.  We are now a little over five weeks from the event and I need to finalize the arrangements.  If you plan to attend, please respond to me with your name and how many people in your party.  We would like to finalize this by November 1st.

        Below I have listed the 23 commitments so far.

          Thanks for pulling this together.  I know it is tedious work.

          Club Members: STEP UP!  23 confirmations is LOW.  This is a great time to get together and share stories about flying and Sky Soaring.  For the cost of a couple of tows, you can have a great evening of aviation comradery.  Past dinners have been fun events and a great time to relax without propwash knocking us out of our chairs.  Sign up today!  I hope to see a lot more than 23 of you at the dinner.

          Best Regards,

          John F. Phelan

                                Would you mind posting the latest guest list? I’m still not certain that we were added to the roster. Thank you! Mike
