Synopsis

Fantastic meeting..! Nearly 50 members and guests. Vice Flight Captain David Jones ran the show. Tom Prior was nailed by 'acting Provost Marshall" Bill Rial to tell an aviation-related story. He nailed it -- telling everyone how he aged 10 years in just 10 seconds when he thought a Russian Bear intercepted his RC jet, only to shoot it down with a big cannon. Turns out, it was just a big camera. Clint Johnson did his usual fantastic job with the raffle. Feeling a bit under the weather and hardly able to talk, Clint managed to man the sign-in table taking raffle sales, work the floor distributing to raffle winners, all the while raising $390 for the Flight Scholarship Fund. Speaking of scholarship, today's main purpose was to award GaTech cadet Chloe Thomas with a $4500 scholarship. That's the largest single scholarship given of the 22 scholarships presented by this Flight. Counting National's dollars thought the matching scholarship program, the Ben T Epps Flight has awarded over $38,000 in scholarships to 22 college ROTC cadets. Dang good show..!!!
