The International Grumman Pilots Association
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic SnF 2020 has been cancelled. Hopefully the team will be able to host an AYA event with SnF in April of 2021. Thanks for your efforts this year.
EVENT IS CANCELLED
Sky Lounge Steakhouse & Sushi Bar is far from your typical airport restaurant. Want to find out why it’s described as "one of the best kept secrets in Sonoma County", come & join us! We all know Snoopy was pretending it was a Grumman when he flew his kennel!
RSVP: Stew Wilson at 530-295-7158 or email@example.com
Meet the Central Region director, Doug Reetz, fly-in for lunch, firstname.lastname@example.org
We have no customs available here unless everyone on board is a member of CANPASS. Estevan is a CANPASS port only. Regina or the Peace Gardens (Dunseith, S28) are our closest ports of entry for general aviation. It would be nice to see some of our American friends show up.
The large number of well-preserved Roman monuments is unparalleled North of the Alps & has earned Trier the nickname ‘Rome of the North’. Join us for a weekend of culture, wine, good food & Grumman!
RSVP: Joerg (Yogi) Beck at +49-178-2634500 or email@example.com

Well, the word is out.....TEXAS will be the site for our next convention! Fredericksburg, TX to be specific, in the heart of the beautiful Texas Hill Country. This neat little German themed town is where our 2006 convention was held and for those of you who attended back then, you'll remember what a great time we had (aside from the blazing HEAT!) As it will have been 14 years since we last met in Fredericksburg, we decided it was a good time to revisit. The town has grown in the last 14 years but you'll find it to be as charming and interesting as ever. In order to avoid the intense summertime heat, as well as to take advantage of off season pricing, we've scheduled the event to take place May 11-14, 2020.
The primary convention hotel will be The Hangar Hotel, http://www.hangarhotel.com conveniently located right on the field (T82) and next door to the convention facility. They will begin accepting reservations on October 14, 2019. We have booked the entire facility, (50 rooms) and negotiated the rates down to $119.00 for Sunday through Thursday. Rates outside those days will be higher. You can call 830-997-9990 to make your reservation and be sure to mention the AYA BLOCK RATE.
The overflow hotel, Fredericksburg Inn & Suites https://www.fredericksburg-inn.com/en-us will also be the same one we used last time, but it has recently undergone a $4 million renovation and is extremely nice. It also benefits from having a full complementary breakfast and is an easy, one block walk from main street where all the shopping, restaurants and museums are located. They are accepting reservations now and you can contact them at 830-997-0202. Again, be sure to mention the AYA BLOCK RATE.
Your convention chairs, Bill and Cindy Daly, my wife Susan Dollar and myself are determined to put on a great convention for you so please mark your calendars now, polish your boots and spurs and start planning to attend. More updates on the activities and attractions will be coming in the near future so stay tuned and check back to the AYA website often. See you in TEXAS!!
The responses will still be drawn from so don't forget to send them in to Sharon, firstname.lastname@example.org
You found SasqWatch! Another opportunity to enter the drawing for a beautiful, rare wood SaskWatch watch! Just send your name, phone number, and this location to Sharon Spence at email@example.com
Dear Grumman enthusiasts,
in the current situation of uncertainty of travel and safety (or lack thereof) to your health the organizer team and myself came to the conclusion that with deep regret we will have to cancel this years European convention.
Who would’ve thought that not the scottish weather but a worldwide pandemic disease would hinder our flight paths?
But as they say in flying: Better safe than sorry. We do not want to risk that any of our dear friends is getting infected.
The event will be still hosted in Scotland. Just one year later so you have more time doing your travel planning, check online what sights to see before or after and scramble for more pocket money to spend.
And as usual at or around Pentecost (end of may), depending on the hotels situation still to be verified.
I am so very grateful and proud that Val and Sandy - despite all that work that now will roll over them a second time - did not hesitate a bit and volunteered to try again next year. Thank you so very much for this. It’s really highly appreciated.
If there is any justice in the world this will surely be honored with georgous weather next year.
Attached you'll find the cancellation notice by the organizers Val and Sandy. You will all get a refund of your pre-payments.
More details in their letter. We’d love you to rejoin for 2021 and you - the current attendees - have a head start!
So please (!) look after yourself and your family at this time because we do want to see you next year!
Join me in raising your glasses with me tonight: to Oban 2021!
All the best
PS: Don’t forget to cancel your hotel and car rental bookings and for some: airline flights too
