Next Meeting Details and Announcements - Fall 2018 - St. Louis, MO

(Emails in chronological order below)

Subject: AFDC 2018 Fall Meeting (St. Louis, MO) & First Call for Presentations

 

Dear Members & Guests…

 

The venue for our Fall meeting has been set by our host Boeing.  We will convene 4-5 October 2018 at Boeing – St. Louis in Building 100, which, I’m sure, many of you are quite familiar.  Within a few days, I’ll be sending you a list of local hotels provided for us by Brad Sexton, who’s graciously coordinating this meeting.  We’ve also scoured other organization’s calendars: we see no conflicts.

 

Please find the reservation form attached (below).  Return to me (ralph.tate@lmco.com) and Brad (Bradley.w.sexton@boeing.com).  Please note that the reservation form is a little more extensive than usual, because our host does have ‘badging’ requirements for visitors.  If you’re attending, the form must be fully completed.

 

We are planning an off-site dinner, whose details remain pending.  It won’t just be good grub and lots of it, but the area has an historic charm for baseball aficionados.

 

So, if you’ve a burning topic to discuss or some ideas to bounce off others or just polish up a presentation for peer review, we hope then to “See You in St. Louis”.

Dear Members & Guests…

 

We’re one month out from our Fall meeting 4-5 October 2018 at Boeing – St. Louis in Building 100.  You will find and area map and hotel map enclosed (below).

 

Please also find the reservation form attached (below).  Return to me (ralph.tate@lmco.com) and Brad (Bradley.w.sexton@boeing.com).  Please note that the reservation form is a little more extensive than usual, because our host does have ‘badging’ requirements for visitors.  If you’re attending, the form must be fully completed.

 

We are planning an off-site dinner, and, perhaps, a tour, whose details yet remain pending.

 

So, if you’ve a burning topic to discuss or some ideas to bounce off others or just polish up a presentation for peer review, we hope then to “See You in St. Louis”.  We are a mite skosh shy of presentations and have ample slots and time available for discussion, and, besides, I’d really not like anyone to see how my karaoke skills have atrophied.

 

P/S – I’ve not Ken Griffins current E-mail address, since he retired from SWRI.  If you know it, please forward a copy of this meeting notice to him and the address to me.  Thank you very much.

Subject: AFDC 2018 Fall Meeting (Boeing - St. Louis): Agenda and Last Call for Presentations

Dear Members & Guests

We're less than one (1) week from our meeting 4-5 Oct 2018 at Boeing-St. Louis, Bldg. 100. In addition to the previously sent maps, a provisional agenda is attached (below).

So, we've room for additional presentations if you're so inclined; please advise quickly should you desire to present. I've included two (2) panel discussions: one for whirl flutter and miscellaneous effects, another for NL LCOs; this by popular acclamation.

Presenters, I'd like you to scan the agenda that I've cited you correctly and, should travel arrangements interfere, tell me whether your time period is acceptable. Also, I'd like you to send an electronic copy of your presentation to Brad Sexton, so we can load it to the audio/visual system. Also, send a copy to our archivist Jeremy Carter (jeremy.a.carter@lmco.com).

See you soon.

Regards,

Ralph.

Subject: AFDC 2018 Meeting (Wrap-Up) and Location for Spring 2019 Meeting

Dear Members & Guests:

Well, the 2018 meeting concluded. Attendance on the first day varied between 38 to 40; the second, 32 to 34. The Boeing facilities in Bldg. 100 were awesome, and the plant tour very informative. The Boeing museum being between our two venues offered an excellent perspective on aerospace development over the past 100+ years.

I've included the final agenda for your review (download below). We extended past the time we could have the second panel discussion. The Council receive two (2) excellent presentation from Gayl Miller and William Norby on Boeing's global technology thrusts, which, frankly, I thought worth the trip all by themselves. Everything seems to have jelled into an outstanding meeting.

So . . . drum roll please . . .our Spring 2019 meeting will be held at Virginia Tech with Dr. Rakesh Kapania as our host. He and I'll work out details in next few weeks. So, start to lay in your plans to attend.

Our intent is to return to a venue in American West in Fall 2019.

I look forward to seeing y'all again soon.

Regards,

Ralph.
