Carol Theiler has recently taken a trip in her and Pete's Comanche 260 to Alaska. She went as far up as Point Barrow, Alaska which is the northernmost point of civilization. Carol has taken many pictures and written descriptions of her trip. These are all available at her web-site at www.theiler.us <http://www.theiler.us/> . I have viewed most of the pictures available there and encourage all interested members to go there and view them—you won't be sorry. My hat is off to Carol for her enthusiasm, her sense of adventure, her willingness to utilize the Comanche for exploration, and her ability to share this experience with all of us. Carol and Pete plan to be at Tampa during the convention. I am sure Carol will be glad to share tales of her adventure to all who ask.
I have been in touch with convention Chairman Charlie Liller and he has advised me that at this time Maurice Taylor has intentions of attending the Tampa Convention on Sat. 13. Although this is tentative and might change at the last minute, right now the will and intentions are there. We are all hoping that Maurice will be able to attend and look forward to seeing him there. Many of us owe a debt to Maurice for helping with information to keep our planes maintained.
We have also received word that Jeffrey Earle, South Africa Tribe Chief, plans to be in attendance. We look forward to seeing him also and realize that he will have traveled a great distance to join us in Tampa.
Since Kenneth Holdsworth, of Queensland, Australia will also be in attendance, I am not sure which of these gentlemen is traveling the furthest. What with members from Canada, England, and Germany, Tampa will truly be an international affair. If you are not coming to Tampa, you are missing out on meeting Comanche enthusiasts from all over the world.
I wanted to say a few more words about the upcoming By-Law proposal which will be voted on at Tampa. As I stated before, I am in favor of this proposal and encourage you to be in attendance and vote for the proposal. Since a 2/3 majority of those present is needed for this to pass, we really need your help in making a positive change for the future of ICS. The proposal is written in the August Flyer on page 29 and 31. I urge you to read it and consider it. Along with the By-Law proposal which allows members to vote by absentee ballot in the future, there is a resolution which I also recommend that you vote in the affirmative. This resolution removes some ambiguity that currently exists in our Articles of Incorporation as they relate to Kansas Law which is where ICS is incorporated.
Remember that the General Membership meeting takes place at the Wyndham Harbour Island Hotel, Fri. Sept. 12, at 10:00 AM. You do not have to pay any registration fee if attending only the meeting and we will provide free transportation from the Peter O'Knight Airport and back. Plan to arrive to Peter O'Knight at about 9:00 AM to allow time to get to the hotel for the meeting.
Thanks for your attention.
