Spring 2014 Boy Scout Campout

Flag saluteWe are now accepting registrations for our 4th Annual Spring Boy Scout Campout. It will be held on May 9, 10 & 11. This is Mother’s day weekend but everyone leaves early on Sunday to get home to be with Mom. Click the picture or the below link to download more information and the registration form.

“I am not a fan of mass merit badge classes, I didn’t really want to come, but the Aviation Merit Badge at MAPS Air Museum is an exception. This is a very well run program, we learned a lot and had a great time.”  Scout Master – Buckeye Council

“This is the best run campout-merit badge program that we have been to. We are new to scouting but I think this one will be hard to beat.” Assistant Scout Master – Great Trail Council

We cover the required curriculum associated with earning the BSA Aviation Merit Badge. Imagine, receiving instruction in aerodynamics from a Fighter Pilot on the aircraft he flew in Vietnam, F-100 SuperSabre, or go through a pre-flight with a pilot on his aircraft, or talk about careers from a retired colonel who is our director of education, an aeronautical engineer and retired principal. Saturday evening, we conduct a program of WWII and Vietnam Veterans talking about their experiences.  Then we watch a movie in the hangar.

Space is limited to 250 scouts to insure the quality of the classes, so please contact us as soon as possible to make reservations for your troop. Contact Reed Kimball to secure your space, kimball.reed@mapsairmuseum.org

Fred Lindsay digs for P-51

 

Dig

Long time member/volunteer/supporter Fred Lindsay digs the hole for the P-51 Monument on Massillon Road. Thanks to everyone who has pitched in on this major project. It will become a wonderful tribute to our members and the National Guard. We have inspector approval and Mark Luntz will take over to set the pole and get ready to pour the concrete shortly thereafter.

Special thank you to Mark Stucky who advised us on this entire project. We appreciate the expertise that he brought to the project.

Veteran’s Day Dinner and Dance

This year the MAPS Air Museum will be holding a Veteran’s Day Program to honor those who have fought, and continue to fight, for our country. This program is for veterans and their families and if you wish to attend please fill out the posted form and return it to the museum as soon as possible to ensure a place in the celebration. This is a limited event and we will accept as many people as we can until the event is filled. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the museum at 330.896.6332.

The dinner will be catered by the 356fth Fighter Group so the food will be outstanding and there will be a band that will play 60′s and 70′s music.
