Jim has done more to keep the NAA alive than anyone knows. I have a lot of respect for the man and have really come to know him in the last couple years. That happens when you spend 8 days sitting with someone in the type club tent. He and his wife Betty are good people and Jim lives and breathes Aeroncas. The connections he has, with the FAA, Aeronca Inc. and hundreds of Aeronca enthusisasts are incredible.

Running a type club is a tough and thankless job. You start all enthusastic and energetic and then it starts to wear you down over the years. The fact that Jim has stayed in it this long is a testament to his committment to the airplanes and enthusiasts.

All this is why I felt it was worthwhile to help him try to turn the organization around rather than jump on board a new type club and go a different direction. It just takes patience on our part, a willingness to accept help on his, and the great support of all of you. We'll get there...

Brian - Thanks for your work.

Could I suggest that this thread or one like it be "bumped" when a new issue
goes out so we can figure out if we are on the membership list or not? I for one would just like to know when the issue is on the way so I can start my usual running to the mailbox!

Thank you to Jim and to all the NAA folks.

Mark

FYI...Jim just sent me a disk with the latest membership data and asked for a file to create a set of labels. Most likely means the next issue is off the presses. Will keep you all posted.

Larry,

Looking forwards to meeting you and everyone else in Middletown.

Best way to tell if you are about ready to renew for me is that I renew every year around this time of year. Usually done at the fly in but if there is no fly-in held that year then I just send it in.

Yes, some people say that until you are caught up with the magazines you are current but while I like the magazines a lot, the organization is a lot more than a magazine and I can afford $30 or so a year to help keep the National Aeronca Assoc alive.

See you in a week or so!

Joe

Since my birthday (70 !!) is this month. I just renewed my membership (as someone suggested). It would be nice to get a magazine or newsletter once in awhile but to me being able to interact with others on the forum and hopefully contribute something worthwhile every now and then is worth the $25.
