EAA 538 "All In" Poker Run
October 27 thru  28, 2017

Cottonwood Sedona Winslow Payson FalconFieldMesa, AZ

This from Carlos Hernandez, President for Chapter 538 in sunny Phoenix, Arizona. The Copperstate Fly-in is one of the largest SW fly-ins and is returning to Falcon Field (KFFZ) in Mesa, Arizona. EAA Chapter 538 would like to offer some more flying fun to your agenda if you are planning to visit Copperstate this year. I would like to invite you to take part in our EAA Chapter 538's "All In" Poker Run!

This poker run is a two day event, in which you will have 5 airports to stop at which are Cottonwood (P52) - Sedona (KSEZ) - Winslow (KINW) - Payson (KPAN) - Falcon Field (KFFZ). You may complete the run in any order, but must end at Falcon Field. Fun flying, photo opportunities along the entire route, and the last stop is a fly-in to boot! Come out and join us in this fantastic fall weather in Arizona!

This poker run is open to all members, non-members, families and friends! Your first hand is $20 and each additional hand is $5 (no limit). In addition to the poker run, there will be a 50/50 raffle. Two days of ticket sales, one winner, that means big money! 10% of EAA 538's winning of the 50/50 raffle will be donated to EAA's Air Academy Scholarship to help sponsor two or more future aviators to attend the Air Academy in Oshkosh, WI during Airventure.

For complete details and registration information, visit our webpage! We can also be found on Facebook. Please Like and Share to spread the word of the Poker Run.

I thank you for your time and do hope to see and meet more fellow aviators at the Poker Run!

Best regards,

Carlos Hernandez
President, Chapter 538

Museum Aerial Tour - "Secrets of New Mexico"
November 15, 2017

NM Museum of Naturla History and Science

Albuquerque, NM

6:30pm - 8:00pm

Jeff Gilkey returns with an ALL NEW aerial tour of the "Secrets of New Mexico." From the unrestricted open cockpit of Jeff's ultralight trike, we will gaze down on many of the lesser known and secret scenic treasures of our state. This will include dozens of obscure ruins of the ancient civilizations of southwest. Jeff's photos and high definition video projected on the five-story Dynatheater screen will give you a first-person, "bird's eye-view" unlike anything you have experienced before.

If you have attended Jeff’s previous talks, you know that it is always standing-room only. Buy your ticket early and prepare for an exhilarating evening. Tickets are $7 General, $6 Members, $4 Students.

Jeff Gilkey flew hanggliders for 10 years in the '80s and '90s and has been flying trikes since 2004. He has logged over 1600 hours in his Aerotrike Cobra on cross country adventures into nearly every corner of New Mexico with many extending into Colorado, Arizona, Utah and Texas.

For more information and tickets, use website link below.
