The
following
is
from Tulsa,
Oklahoma,
VAA
Chapter
lO's newsletter
that
is
written
for
the
most
part by
the
fa-
mous Charles Harris:
"Oh,

And,
so
it
is
with
our
summer fly-in season.
We are
quick
ly
approaching (some
in
the north

there
now)
the
last
scenes
in
the final act
of
the
2001
season
.
As
always, it
has
been
a
great
year;
as
always,
the
more
we
have
put
into
it,
the
more
we
have gotten
out
of
it.
There

You
get
the

We
have
missed
(and will
always miss)

the
last
two
years

and
it
was
a
real

to

For
those of
you
that
have
the
good fortune
to read
Charlie's Chapter 10 newsletter, it's obvious
that putting
it together
is
a real labor
of
love for him.
All
of us, members
and
officers alike, are lucky
to
have
Charlie
serve as
the
Treasurer
on
the
VAA
Board of Directors. Often
one
hears,

To
sustain a Chapter over a long period, a good newslet
ter
is
critical.
It
can
be
very
difficult
to find
the
right
person
to assume
the
newsletter editor's
role,
and when
you do,
do
all you can to keep
that
editor happy.
When
a Chapter does find someone
to
produce a newsletter,
mem
bers will tell the new editor
they'd
be
happy
to supply the newsletter with all sorts of information. Do you
know how
quiet the
newsletter editor's
phone
is
between each
month's
newsletter publications?
It
is
not that the
people
who
promised
to help
didn't want
to,
but
it's n
ot
the
most
important thing
on
their
mind
between
meetings.
If
you
be
long
to
a
Chapter, help the editor
by
pitching
in
to
help. Get
him
or
her
that
helpful
tip
or
activity report,
and
you'll
make
the
editor
smile. Having a
strong
newsletter helps get
important
in
formation
out
to
each
member-everybody
needs
to know
about the
date
and time
of
the next
meeting
and any
significant
issues
that
relate
to
Chapter
business.
If
you really
want
to
be
involved
in
the
Chapter and
have
some
fun
at the
same time, step forward
and
become
the newsletter editor of your Chapter.
If
your
Chapter
is already blessed
with
a
good
editor, ask
if
you
can
be
of any
help.

Paul Harvey
The
first full
weekend
of
October, Norma
and
I
at
tended
the
VAA
Chapter
3 fly-in. Held
each
year
at the
Darlington,
South
Carolina, airport,
the
airfield
there
has
proven to
be a great place
to
have this
annual
event. This
airport
was
a
World
War
II
training
base,
so
there
are
plenty of big runways. They have also installed a very nice grass
runway
beside
the main
hard
surface runway.
That makes this
fly-in
very friendly
to
the
old taildraggers.
There's also a nice
camping
area
on
the
airport.
We
used
the
camping
area this year,
and
it worked
out
great. The Darlington
County
airport
authority
has been very helpful
and
hospitable. They even sponsor
an
lion
the
air
port
Friday
night
pig
pickin', which
is
great
fun.
The enhanced
Class
liB
airspace rule was still in effect,
which
caused
the
airplane
count
to
be
down. The
rain
on
Satur
day
did
not
help
matters as well. Those
that
could
not
fly
in
drove to Darlington to meet friends
and
attend
the
Sat
urday
night
dinner,
where
we
enjoyed
a
talk by
one
of vintage aviation's
most
accomplished enthusiasts,
Ken Hyde,
about
his fascinating work with
The
Wright Experience. Their discoveries
about the
methods
and
techniques used by
the
Wrights
are
captivating.
Ken
and
I
have
enjoyed a
long
friendship,
and
this
project gave us
an
even
better
excuse to
spend part
of Saturday
afternoon
to
gether.
EAA, VAA,
and
The Wright
Experience
will
be
sharing
more
on
their intriguing
discoveries in
the
com
ing
months
as we
move
toward
the
100th
anniversary
of
successful powered flight
on
December 17, 2003. Let's
all
pull in
the
same
direction
for
the
good
of
aviation.
Remember
we
are
better
together.
Join
us
and
have
it all
