99s on a Mission

SE Section Members rescue dogs
SE Section members Susan Delgado and Ellen Herr were among the 50 or so planes that showed up to rescue over 400 dogs that were slated for destruction in GA. Click on the link above to see the NewsPress article of Ellen's arrival in Naples, FL with her plane load of puppies.

We are pilots. We love aviation and we want others to share our passion.

As 99s, we do what we can to let our enthusiasm for aviation be infectious to others. We host events geared toward fund raising for aviation scholarships and cancer research; we host fly-in designed to help keep our members and others active and current in their aviation skills; and we fly. Read about us below.

GoldCoast Chapter Hosts Girls Scouts Event

GS1.jpgAt the February Goldcoast Chapter meeting the girl scouts in the foreground gave three presentations--a rap song about Poncho Barnes, a powerpoint on Amelia Earhart and short biographies of the first ten women in the world to become pilots. Chapter members who are helping the girls earn their aviation badges and the scout leaders are standing.

GS3.jpg(left) Flight attendants, according to Diana Napoli have to be strong and fit to carry all the things they need on a trip and to handle their safety responsibilities. The scouts were surprised that Diana carries handcuffs. Other aviation careers discussed were air traffic controller, aircraft mechanic and educator.

Suncoast Chapter Hosts Poker Run to Raise Money for Space Camp Scholarship

Our 2nd Annual Poker Run was held in February to raise funds for the Space Camp Scholarships that are offered by the Florida Suncoast 99s chapter on the west coast of Florida.  Teaming up with EAA 282 chapter at KCLW Clearwater Airpark to benefit their scholarship fund, the 99s prepared food for the lunch served to participants after the "run".  Hands were turned in and ordered from high to low.  After perusing their standings, the audience participated in a lively bidding war for the wild cards to improve their chances at the first place prize of $99 (in honor of the 99s) and 2nd place prize of $49.50 (in honor of our significant others, our 49 1/2s).  Many additional prizes were available from a headset, books, aviation glasses, bottles of spirits, and gift cards to restaurants far and wide in our area.  Few in the audience left empty-handed.  The weather was windy and hindered some who had planned to fly in from the south as well as the east coast of our state but their donation to our fundraising was appreciated.  Advertising through the many school boards, districts and individual schools throughout our chapter's area has been put out through email and we hope to receive many applications from interested girls who want to attend Space Camp or Space Academy in Huntsville, Alabama this July.  Notification of our Space Camp scholarship information can be accessed through our website at then click on Space Camp Scholarships on the compass rose.  Pictures of past Space Camp winners and other educational activities sponsored by the Florida Suncoast 99s chapter can be viewed on our Facebook page by searching "Florida Suncoast 99s" once you sign in to Facebook.  The scholarships are open to any Florida girl in grades 4, 5, or 6.  The postmarked deadline is stringent.  Neatness and creativity are a must!  Good luck to any girl who deigns to apply!

3rd annual Kitty Hawk Classic golf tournament a big success! 

Thanks to your efforts, we raised $3,727.17 for our chapter's scholarship fund and for the American Cancer Society's “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” campaign.
Since we started this golf tournament three years ago, we've has raised $11,926.65 for these two worthy causes!
Thanks to your efforts, we are closer to the day when no one will ever have to hear the words, "You have breast cancer."
Many, many thanks to everyone for contributing to our success!

Kitty Hawk 2006 Golf Tourney Raises Funds for Cancer Research

We did it!! The golf tournament is over and was SUCCESSFUL and VERY FUN.  Eleven (11) teams played and from all I hear, for a very first tournament, that number of teams is great!  Once all the expenses are paid, we will have a report for everyone.
We started setting up at 9:00am, registering golfers at 11:30am, playing at 1:00pm, and eating Danny's BBQ at 6:00 pm. Thirty-three (33) participated in the $10,000 putting contest, and one or two got verrrrrrry close. Twenty-five (25) golfers challenged Ken Eckenroth in the 'Beat-the-Pro' contest and only eight were able to beat Ken.  Unfortunately, not one golfer shot a "hole-in-one." 
Corbi, as usual, did an excellent, excellent job of managing most of the logistics with a lot of help from Marlene, Rosemary, Margaret, Laura, Brook, and several friends and family members. Emily dropped by for a short time to wish us well and leave a nice donation. Karen, Tonya, and I also helped in the morning before leaving at 1:00 to join the golfers.
The team that came in first place was Norm Karr, Chad Cochran, Decky Stell, and Gary Yoder; the second place was  Mike Swaia, Bill Dukeman, Jan Feather, and Brian Clarke. The longest drive for the men was made by Jerry Jennette. Jerry's wife, Judy, won the longest drive for women. Two of the four closest to the pin awards went to Danny Thompson and Mike Peeples.  I'll have to tell you the other two names later as I don't yet have them.
We gave away 28 rounds of golf for door prizes. We made $330. from a silent auction. (We put up rounds of golf at three really pricey courses near Raleigh-Durham for a silent auction.... the Preserve at Jordan Lake, Chapel Ridge Golf Club, and the Bentwinds Country Club.)  And, we gave an estimated $900 worth of other door prizes.
HUGE thanks to all who were able to spend time during the day to help!  For those of you that couldn't get away on that day and helped with posters, brochures, sponsors, door prizes, finding teams, and just spreading the word to the media, friends, and families.... thanks to you too!  We couldn't have done any of this without you.  Dori
