Squadron Meeting, 7 MAR 2013

This Thursday's meeting will be an away game. Squadron 150 is going on the road to the Saddleback Valley Composite Squadron (Squadron 68) to take in a presentation by CAPT Tolga Tarhan of CAWG. The subject will be "SAREX Workflow" and should examine the mechanics of how a mission is organized and run. It is a must from every perspective -- mission staff and aircrew -- to understand roles various participants will play.

The actual meeting begins at 1900 so Squadron 150 members should plan on arriving NLT 1845 to be polite. The location is:
Headquarters: U.S. Army Reserve Base
2651 Newport Blvd. Costa Mesa, CA  92627-4627
The directions are here. You should pay special attention to the map and note that as you make the right turn from Bristol onto Newport Blvd, the reserve center comes up pretty fast on your right. If you miss that turn in, you will have to go around again as Newport is a one-way street at that point.

Also, this may be the SQ 68 safety briefing night, so be sure you sign into the guest log in order to receive credit and become safety current through 30 APR 2013.

There are no known uniform requirements but if you are to represent 150, I ask that you dress sharply to reflect credit. Again, for emphasis, please be sure to arrive on time (1845) so as to not disrupt the proceedings.

March Training and Prep Series
1LT Dave Martin will post an announcement concerning the meetings for the balance of March. These will center on the theme of being prepared for SAREXes in anticipation of our Chino event scheduled for 6-8 APR 2013. This should include prep for Mission Scanner and Mission Staff Assistant.
