National Soaring Museum 50th Anniversary Celebration
October 5 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The National Soaring Museum is looking forward to an exciting celebration in October. A catered banquet will be held in the evening with entertainment by a local big band the Hep Cats. Simine Short will be giving an afternoon talk on Chanute and the museum’s 1996 reproduction Arnot-Chanute glider. After dinner, retired NASM curator, Tom Crouch, will give a talk on the Wright Brothers’ glider experiments, That’s quite a line up! Also in the works is the possibility of placing some 60’s vintage sailplanes along the fence out in front during the day. Invitations will be sent out to NSM members in late August, but non-members are welcome to call or e-mail the National Soaring Museum to reserve seats. 607-734-3128 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
