January 2014 Meeting
The January 2014 meeting will be on Tuesday, January 21 at 6:30 pm at the Savannah Technical College School of Aircraft Technology. Mr. Robert Strub will give us a tour of their Facility and discuss their mission.
We need a head count for the meeting as we plan to have subs and sodas for dinner.
Location: The Savannah Technical College Aviation program is located at 170 Crossroads Parkway, Savannah, GA 31407 if you want to put it in your GPS.
If you need directions - just turn North onto Crossroads Parkway which is the left turn between the 2 gas stations across from Sam Sneads as you head east towards the airport from exit 104. Go 2.1 miles and the Savannah Technical College Aviation Program is on the left. Do NOT go to the Savannah technical College Campus that is 1.7 miles from the left turn. That is different from the Aviation Campus!
Update (1/25/14): We had about 21 members show up for the January meeting. We had sandwiches and sodas. Special thanks to Robert Strub for hosting a great meeting for us! The Savannah Technical College School of Aircraft Technology is a state of the art facility that we all enjoyed touring.
