New England Chapter Fall 2017 Meeting

By Marty Diller,
New England Chapter Secretary-Treasurer
 

The Chapter was back at the Bull N'Claw restaurant in Wells, Maine on 14 October with 50 members and guests in attendance. As usual, I ordered their "Puckered Penguin" cocktail that was created by their head bartender, Robin, for our 2014 Fall meeting. The drink was named at that meeting by Chapter President Nick Pellegrino (VXE-6, 1970-72). The drink consists of a mix of Crown Royal, peach schnapps, Chambord liqueur, and cranberry juice. It still tastes great and we are pleased that it is associated with the Puckered Penguins.

Chapter Business

After an excellent meal, member Charlie "CB' Bevilacqua led attendees in the Pledge of Allegiance to open the business meeting. Routine reports by the Secretary/Treasurer were heard, as well as committee reports. In other routine business, member Peter Kearney requested, and was accepted, as an "At-Large" Chapter member. Pete lives in Staten Island, NY.

In business from the floor, I reported on the OAEA Scholarship Committee's awards for the 2017-18 school year. One of the two awardees ($1,000) is the granddaughter of Chapter member Jimmy Burke, of Center Ossipee, NH. The other winner received a $1,500 scholarship award.

Chapter member Tom Henderson was on hand to provide a final update on his "Ice Eagles" project - a video documentary on the history of Antarctic aviation. The project has been completed; the film - a set of two 1-hour DVDs - has been produced and is available for purchase (www.gwillow.com). Tom hopes to have "Ice Eagles" picked up for airing by PBS. He also intends to send the DVD set to PBS affiliates in cities with large U.S. naval aviation populations, such as Jacksonville, Norfolk/Virginia Beach, Pensacola, and San Diego. He added that the Explorer Club in NYC has asked him to submit the DVD set as a contender for their annual Polar Award category.

Fundraising

The 50/50 raffle drawing winner was John Clough (USARP; Queen Mary Land Traverse -2 & -3 and Byrd Station/Ross Ice Shelf Project - nine seasons during 1965 78). John donated $50 of his prize to the Chapter, who forwarded it to the OAEA Scholarship Program in John's name. (Belatedly, I learned that John's annual dues were not up to date, but with some coordination between John, the OAEA Treasurer, Scholarship Committee and Membership Committee, a portion of the $50 was diverted to upgrade John's member status to OAEA Life member.)

Meeting Schedule

The next OAEA-NE Chapter meeting is scheduled for 1 PM on Saturday, March 24, 2018, at the Quonset O Club restaurant in North Kingstown, RI.
