The meeting venue will be the Richland Red Lion Hotel, and several additional activities are in the works.

    We will be adding registration information to the Northwest Section webpage shortly, as tour details are finalized. Please share this information with your chapter members while we prepare a general email blast. Online registration is also available through the link.

    *Awards* are a very important part of our annual meeting, and as Chapter Chairs, you play an important role in collecting and forwarding nominations for the various awards to Gin Hildebrant, the Northwest Section Awards Chair. Gin has prepared a very nice document outlining the various awards and the nomination process, and I have attached her document to this email.

    Thank you all for a great year. I am looking forward to 'Have a Blast in Richland' and seeing you all August 22nd through 25th. Karin Rodland

    Minutes from April Meeting-Stacey Budell reporting

    Ok so we were weathered out of flying to Jackpot so we just had our meeting at the Nampa terminal since we were scheduled to have our preflight briefing there anyway at 0900. We had a pretty good turn out despite the weather.

    Cheryl McCord won the hour of dual for showing up with her name tag !

    Kelli has additional 99s T Shirts left to sell $20 medium and larger sizes available.

    I went to Pocatello to speak at the ISU ladies club as one of their speakers and brought Cheryl, Brenda and Boo along with me as panelists to fill our 30 minute time slot. The weather was finally cooperative to allow us to fly my new ( to me) 182 over as we needed to be there by 0945 for the event.

    It was an interesting venue as the Idaho State University has many scholarships available for just about everything imaginable. I wasn't sure what our audience was going to entail until we got there. It was a mixed bag of faculty, scholarship recipients, and members of this group that was founded earlier than the 99s.

    They were kind enough to feed us a wonderful brunch plus reward us with the cutest little airplane gifts for speaking. We would have stayed longer but weather was coming in and we had to be on our way as soon as we were finished with questions and answers. I did meet the 2 Sandy's from the Eastern Idaho chapter while we were at the ISU luncheon and they graciously invited our chapter to join them at their 99 booth that will be set up at the Expo.

    We are scheduled to meet on Saturday at the idaho aviation expo May 18th for our next meeting, let's try to meet up by 1100. Cheryl McCord is our go to for this meeting, Thank you Cheryl!
