   President's Message for July 2015

Welcome to another special summer edition of Touch and Go. The summer editions are 48 pages, and again this year we've had some great content submitted. The thing that is so great about our newsletter/magazine is that it is written for the members by the members.

Now that summer is here I'd like to reflect on the events of the first half of the year: three great speakers - Bill Yenne, Barbara Schultz, and John Brennan - at our general meetings, two excellent, well attended tours - Castle Air Museum and the SF-88 Nike Missile site, and three great newsletters. In addition, we've welcomed 10 new members to our group. Quite a successful year so far and it's only half over. There's still lots to see and do.

For me, one of my yearly highlights is the National Championship Air Races in Reno, Nevada. My father began the tradition when the races started in 1964 at Bill Stead's ranch and I was fortunate enough to be invited to my first races in 1981. There's usually a large, informal gathering of SAH members on Saturday of race week. and I look forward to seeing you all there.

Enjoy this edition of Touch and Go and see you at the races!

- Nick Veronico
