Reno High Sierra Chapter Ninety-Nines

The Reno High Sierra
Chapter of The Ninety-Nines, Inc., was founded by 15 women pilots in 1989. Today, the chapter members include private pilots, certified flight instructors, commercially rated pilots and women
simply flying for the sheer joy and pleasure of it all. Many members
have also earned balloon, glider and seaplane ratings. We traditionally meet at 7 PM on the second Thursday of every month at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport Fire Station, 1805 Riley Avenue, Reno (click on the address to go to a Google Map), or you can contact us to find out where we’re flying on our next monthly
fly-in. You’re welcome to come and join the fun!

Get to work on your Aerospace Education
2015 Scoresheets now to turn them in by February 28, 2016.
WHEN YOU TYPE IN THE FORM PROVIDED: Please save the form as an image file (choose the JPG option) and email that to
Heather. The newer, cloud and fee based version of Adobe's program will NOT save your information in an email-able fashion.
You will be able to save your PDF that you type on your computer, but not share it unless you do this (or you can print
it out and snail mail it to her the old fashioned way).
CATEGORIES FOR SCORING LISTED ON
FORM--Southwest Section (from the SWS 99s chapter chairman's manual)
"Part of the mission statement of 99s International directs us to "Provide...aviation
education in the community." Take a peek at the activities listed on the form that qualify for "points" when
we compete for this award at spring section meeting. Members and chapters who participate in these varied projects reap immeasurable
gratification and "just plane fun" from presenting Flying Companion Seminars, working with school children, flying
local official and educators...and the list goes on. The only problem is that we're so busy "doing" we often
don't record our activities for a whole year.
Active chapters are a lot more interesting and the vitality is catching!"
GOOD IDEAS: All activities need DATE/NAME
OF EVENT/PERSONS ATTENDING. Perhaps if we all keep an
Aero Educ. form in our log books, on our calendars, with our rosters, or some other handy place, we'll be more inclined to
fill it out on a regular basis. AND if we start NOW, at the beginning of the competition year - January 1, 2015 to December
31, 2015 - maybe it will be easier. It is very difficult for the Aero. Educ. chair to compile data at the last minute.
Helpful Tip: KEEP THE SCORE SHEET PAGE IN YOUR
LOG BOOK OR A SAFE PLACE AND ADD YOUR DATES AND ACTIVITIES ON IT MONTHLY,QUARTERLY OR AS YOU DO THEM.
Hopefully, posting the form here on our website will
help us all to stay more current on tracking our activities and lead to a trophy for our chapter!
