Help needed to take Soaring to Oshkosh

Support Needed for Volunteer SSA Display at 2006 EAA Airventure in Oshkosh

In an incredible display of volunteerism to support soaring and the SSA, Region 12’s Ian Cant and Region 7’s Anne Mongiovi have formulated an impressive plan to organize, supervise, and obtain funding for an SSA soaring display at 2006 EAA Airventure, the largest airshow in the U.S. Instead of having an indoor booth as in the past, they proposed to the Board that SSA display a glider outside, and that the approximately $6,000 required to do so be raised via contributions from SSA members of all types.

Anne and Ian have already contacted over 100 SSA Chapters and 29 business members to assess their willingness to make tax deductible contributions and support their effort, with a very encouraging response. The Excom recently voted unanimously to support their effort with $2,000. In order to secure a good location and move forward with this event, Ian and Anne must raise an additional $4,000 by January 23, 2006.

Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated, and will be kept segregated from all other SSA funds.Please make checks payable to “SSA – Oshkosh Display” and mail to Anne Mongiovi, 625 Woodland Court, Troy, Illinois 62294-2238.

Ian and Anne are also managing all the logistics and volunteer scheduling for this event. If you would like to help, please contact Anne at gfranklin@charter.net or 618 6677 7188.

IMPORTANT NOTE If Anne and Ian’s goal of $4,000 in funding is not reached prior to January 23, the SSA soaring dispay at 2006 Airventure will not take place, and all contributions will be returned. If the effort must be abandoned for 2006, SSA has encouraged Ian and Anne to begin planning for a 2007 SSA display at Oshkosh.
