North Central Section Spring Meeting
Posted: May 1, 2015Our Scioto Valley chapter hosted some 60 99s and guests at the Embassy Suites in Dublin for the annual Spring Meeting April 17–19, 2015. The meeting theme was Heart of Aviation/Africa, and centered on the new Heart of Africa exhibit at the Columbus Zoo. In fact, although not open to the public for the season, we were given a special tour of the area. Attendees learned all about the restoration, special preparation, and positioning of the Twin Beech 18 in the lion’s den. The weekend also included a welcome reception and movie (Out of Africa), the semi-annual business meeting (see http://www.ncs99s.org for meeting details), and a Saturday evening banquet with guest speaker, Dwight Jarboe, whose maintenance shop at Richard Downing Airport near Coshocton restores and maintains aircraft for Christian and humanitarian mission flying in remote areas around the world.
