In England where I grew up, there was an advertising campaign for a brand of petroleum whose mascot was a jungle cat. The slogan to encourage you to get revved up with its fuel was, "Have you got a tiger in your tank?" If the ads bombarding men are anything to go by, that is exactly the question they are asking. The tiger I am referring to is testosterone, which some abbreviate to just plain "T." Only they don't ask you if you want milk and sugar with that.
As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
