The Young Eagles event in Zephyrhills on January 18th has been cancelled.

The Sebring Expo (January 16-19) is offering discount tickets to EAA members.
Pat is going to try to get companies at Sebring to donate door prizes

Last weekend Jim and Pat went to a FSAACA event in New Smyrna Beach where they have a new museum. Although the organizers ran out of lunch food in 30 minutes, Jim thought it was a good event that we should plan on next year.

Jim and Pat recently attended an FAA seminar in Orlando. A point that the speaker made was: Before you fill any prescription, check with your AME first. Because once you fill it, that drug is on your record whether or not you take any.
