Squadron Senior Fitness Program - Round 4

y6kf8zmhd3mx.jpg

Warm weather is on the horizon and the density altitude will be increasing - let’s see if we can shed a few pounds from the squadron!

Here’s your chance to recommit yourself to eating a bit better, exercising a bit more, and more importantly making that weight and balance in the aircraft!

All senior members are invited to sign up for round four of the squadron fitness program. You can look forward to fabulous prizes to be presented at the squadron picnic this summer!

Details

  • Program Administrator: Steve Schnelker

  • Check-Ins: Every regular squadron meeting

  • Process:

    • Lt. Schnelker will take the average of your check-in numbers (BMI, weight, etc) to determine a winning team and up to the top three winning members (depending on how many members sign up)

If you want to be a part of a team then indicate your preference on the form. If you want to be randomly assigned a team then we'll do that with the members that sign up.

As always, consult your health-care provider before starting ANY exercise program.

RCS Pilot Scholarship Program - 2019

aircraft_management_image_327E0D911A9DA.jpg

Reno Composite Squadron is in desperate need of qualified pilots! Are you a pilot but aren’t current? Do you have close to 100 hours PIC time? Are you fully current but just need to fly CAP aircraft to get up to speed? Then apply for the program!

We’re not going to teach you how to fly. We don’t have the money for that yet. However, we can cover your costs to get up to speed if our committee of qualified CAP pilots determine that you’re close to CAP qualification and that you’re a participating member of the squadron.

Fill out the form and they will review it and get back to you! If you have questions feel free to talk to Sandy Munns, Jon Plamondon, or CB Wilson at a meeting.
