Super Sabre Society President/Chairman – Elect
Note to members
I understand there are some paper ballots still to arrive, but today I was informed that the Super Sabre Society election results are in and I was elected President to assume office 1 Jan 2015. I am not just honored, I am “humbled.” Aviation has been my life and the F-100 was a big part of it. The guys in this community, dead and alive, taught me everything I know – how to fly; how to follow; how to lead; how to stay alive and how to laugh and have fun in a tough but fulfilling business.
First, I consider Les Frazier to be my friend. Second, if you voted for Les, you have my respect – it means you are interested in the SSS – good on you. I hope to gain your confidence and support. Finally, Les has given all of us something irreplaceable at this point in our lives – an opportunity for memories and fellowship. I hope to build on it.
Between now and January I intend to study our by-laws and talk with board members and travel to Georgetown TX to visit Les. I want to discuss the SSS history and future – where we have been, where we are and where we might want to go.
I just looked again on the SSS website of those headed West – friends, throat lumps – our time may be short, but our opportunities for friendship, memories, laughter and fellowship are with us now – let’s make them what they need to be – FUN, ENJOYABLE and BETWEEN OLD HUN JOCKS and associates!
I will communicate more when I assume office 1 Jan – in the meantime – FIRST CLASS OR NOT AT ALL – ONWARD and UPWARD! Thanks to all who voted, for Les or me.
