The November CCAA Meeting  will be at 6 PM TUESDAY November 9th at Mario’s in Beaufort Square Shopping Center. Please Come!


For the Fish Fry on October 23, we need people to help with set up, serving and clean up. Pat and Dawn Kirk are handling the food prep. This is an annual tradition to thank the traffic controllers at Cherry Point for their efforts on behalf of the GA community.


CCAA members please e-mail Dawn ( if you plan to attend or can help with set-up, serving or clean up they plan to attend so we can get a better count.


Notes from the AUGUST Meeting  (Dawn Kirk, Reporting)


12-14 CCAA members assembled at Mario’s on August 10. Due to the fact that we had so few members present and none of the leadership, we tabled the discussion as to the future direction of the club as either a non-profit or a social club.


We had 2 new members present, Dennis Neill and his (teenage) son Eric. Dennis works in aviation and has the opportunity to get an ejection seat from a military aircraft if anyone is interested in putting it on display at either the FBO or the Airport office. I think the consensus was for him to talk to Ryan to see if they would be interested in it at the FBO.


We also decided that we will have a Pig Pickin’ at the airport on a Saturday in October (no date set) and invite the controllers from Cherry Point in appreciation for their services to local pilots. Pete Beswick and Pat (Kirk) have volunteered to cook the pig and Pete should be able to get a cooker. We will order the sides from Roland’s.


It was announced that Steve Medlin will be leaving and this weekend is his last day at Segrave. Those present felt he had really gone out of his way for the club (flying for AAD the last 2 years) and for a lot of the members, etc. So those present voted to present him with a farewell/thank you gift. A check was written for $300 and Pete Beswick will get a card and present it to him hopefully this Friday evening when he gets back from Maryland with Tipper. I think some of the folks are going to try to be out there around 8:30 p.m or so for an informal farewell.


A suggestion/comment was made that we need to do a better job of promoting/reminding folks about the meetings. Either with some phone calls or maybe an extra email on the Sunday before the meeting so that it will be in people’s minds closer to the actual date and maybe they will show up.


Notes from the September Meeting (Dawn Kirk, Reporting)


We had the CCAA meeting tonight at Mario’s – with record low attendance (7 people) As a follow up to last month’s poorly attended meeting, we decided on the following:

CCAA Annual Fish fry will be Saturday Oct. 25 12 – 2pm with invitations to Cherry Pt. ATC personnel & families and to the Radio Control Flying Club. I am working up the flyer and invitation letter to send to Cherry Point and Beth Beswick will contact the RC club.
