      Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 25 Banquet

      EAA Chapter 25 will be hosting a banquet on November 17th, at the Royal Cliff Event Center in Eagan, MN. The guest speaker will be Mr. Gary Black who works for Cirrus Aircraft Corporation. Gary is a former F-14 Tomcat pilot who flew off aircraft carriers and attended the navy's TOPGUN Fighter Weapons School. Gary's talk is about 5 volunteer pilots (Cirrus pilots and others) who ferried 14 combat military veterans to the Green River area for a challenging four-day whitewater rafting journey. Gary was part of the physically challenging trip. He will show slides and video clips of the worldly scenery, but also talk about the horrors the veterans witnessed in Afghanistan, Kosovo, and Iraq. You'll hear how the men laughed, cried, hugged and made lifelong friends. An article in the November 2019 issue of AOPA, starting on page 68, describes the adventure. The social hour starts at 5 pm with a cash bar. A delicious buffet dinner starts at 7 pm. It includes Chicken Parmigiana, Beef Tip Stroganoff with penne pasta, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Field Green Salad, Sweet Corn, Briannos Bread and coffee. Cupcakes for dessert. Gary's presentation will start around 7:45/8:00 pm.


      Cost: 35.00
