Registration is closed

     It's that time of year again to mark your calendars for the annual Grumman Picnic & Maintenance Seminar. The date is September 16th. The location is Excel-Air Services located on the Jasper County Airport (RZL), Rensselaer, IN. Plan to start arriving around 10:00 for coffee & donuts and to view the many un-airworthy parts John & his crew find throughout the year. Around 11:30 we will start eating the buffet lunch John will have catered in and the maintenance seminar will begin afterwards.

  This year there will be a bonus event. Starting at 5:00 and running until 7:00 will be Tunes on the Tarmac.

     The inaugural Tunes on the Tarmac, a charity concert series benefiting worthy charities with local reach. 100% of admissions from this coming concert will go directly to Mercy Flight, a §501c3 non-profit organization that helps provide free air transportation for people with limited financial means needing treatment at distant medical facilities, or other compassionate needs. Mercy Flight is a great local aviation charity that is administered by John and Cheryl Sjaardema, who are also the owners of Excel Air Services, nationally renowned aviation maintenance facility.

     Even if you can not stay for the Tunes on the Tarmac charity event it would be nice if you can donate at least the admission price as all proceeds go to Mercy Flight that John and his wife originated and run. It is the least we can do for everything John does for us. Please be giving.
