The long-term weather forecast is in, and Friday the 19th looks good: well above freezing with little or no precipitation. If you’ve been considering going to the Oliver Evans Chapter SIA annual dinner at the Desmond Hotel in Malvern that evening, but were worried about conditions, you’ve been granted a reprieve by the weather and by the hotel. They have agreed to extend our registration deadline until the end of the day Wednesday, January 17. So get your registration to Larry DeYoung and don’t miss the exceptional program by Roger Thorne about aviation archeology at the pioneering Paoli-Main Line Airport (which was directly adjacent to the hotel where we’re having the dinner). The hotel will even accept last-minute registrations, so you can e-mail Larry at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at (610) 293-9098 and leave a message. Please also let him know if you will need a ride from the Malvern train station. The dinner is $50 per person, all inclusive (except for the cash—truly CASH—bar, no credit cards).
