2017 RHC News
26 Mar 17 - I found an article in the Sep 2016 of Car and Driver titled, "Dropping Democracy: How the Army Yanks a Humvee Out of a Plane and Drives It Away 750 Feet Later". It breaks down airdrop for non-Riggers. Check out the article here, or view the original source here.
6 Mar 17 - We received a copy of Clipped Wings, from Nick - the President of the Australian Air Dispatch Association (Riggers). Please note that there have been some changes to the 2017 International Rigger Reunion due to the low number of people attending. View their newsletter here or visit the original source here.
23 Feb 17 - We received an email of urgency from Nick, president of the AADA, concerning the International Rigger Reunion currently scheduled for 21-25 Aug 17. If you plan on attending please use this link to register ASAP.
21 Jan 17 - At our monthly luncheon, The Red Hat Chapter said goodbye to our Quartermaster, Gaylin "Jess" Jesmer. This is sad, because Jess was the only Quartermaster the RHC has ever had - other than perhaps Del in the earliest years. Jess is moving out of state and building a home in the great Northwest with his wife. Thank-you for your many years of professional service and friendship with all the Chapter's members. Good luck on all your future endeavors!
1 Jan 17 - The Red Hat Chapter Supply Room is closed for business effective 1 Jan 17. It may reopen if and when the Chapter finds another Quartermaster that is willing to run the store. If you are interested, please contact Mark @ RedHatSix@gmail.com
