Aero Club hears about crop dusting


CLUBS AND CLASSES Scrapbooking news


Judy Farnham Scrapbooking is sweeping the nation.


This hot hobby is a fantastic way to preserve your memories and family history and have fun doing it. Scrapbooking clubs bring people


together, not just to improve their skills and learn new techniques, but more importantly to form friendships and help one another. Scrapbooking is all your personal style and photos; there is no right or wrong. Join our group and make cards or scrapbook layouts like never before. We


meet in the Sewing Room in the Resource Section of Oakwood on Sunday afternoons from 1:00-5:00 p.m. Make paper and embellishments


for


all hobbies and sports such as NASCAR racing, volleyball, football, quilting, etc. Paper is also made for all holidays, so those memories will last a lifetime and longer. Some tools and scrap paper will be


provided. If you have any questions or would


like a seat saved for you please call Judy Farnham at 480-895-6690. Having a good time, that is our motto.

Steve Hohl described his experience as an aerial applicator during a presentation to the Sun Lakes Aero Club in March. Here he is shown with a model of one of the aircraft he uses in his work.


Gary Vacin An aerial applicator who once made 74


take-offs and landings in one day was the guest speaker at the Sun Lakes Aero Club (SLAC) get together Monday, March 18, at the Sun Lakes Country Club. Sun Lakes resident and SLAC member


Steve Hohl showed photos and video describing his 41 years of experience as an aerial applicator in Iowa. He started out fl ying a Piper J-3 Cub


that had been adapted with spray booms under the wings and a small belly tank to hold the product. His wife was his fl agger to direct his fl ight paths across the fi elds being treated. Today, Hohl fl ies modern aircraft


designed specifi cally for aerial application. His aircraft are fi tted with sophisticated equipment such as GPS, fl ow controls and precisely calibrated spray equipment to make sure he is accurate in applying the correct amount of product to the crop. He used charts to illustrate the patterns


he fl ies during aerial application fl ights. These range from race track patterns where the aircraft fl ies around and around over the


fi eld, to back and forth patterns featuring climbs and tight turns to return to the fi eld. He likened stops between fl ights to race


car pit stops, with aircraft being fueled and loaded with product for the next fl ight. The old term crop dusting doesn’t


begin to describe the way the industry has developed since it began in 1921. For one thing, most applications today are in liquid form so the word dusting is misleading. In addition to controlling insects, weeds and diseases that


threaten crops, aerial


applicators plant seed from the air into fl ooded rice fi elds, spread rye grass seed in cornfi elds prior to harvest to prevent soil erosion and fertilize and add nutrients to soil for healthy crops and forests. SLAC sponsors programs the third


Monday of the month from November through April in the Sun Lakes Country Club Mirror Room. The public is invited to attend all gatherings. Additional information is available on


the club’s web site SunLakesAeroClub. org, or by calling Bob Walch at 895- 8869

We’ve already talked about the virtues of dividing your money, but it’s also wise to make smaller denominations of currency easily accessible. That way, you won’t pull out the local equivalent of a $100 bill while attempting to buy a $.30 souvenir. You also won’t have to reach down into your jeans to get more money from an under-clothing money pouch. Make money preparation part of your morning routine: as you’re packing your bag, make sure you’ve got a variety of small bills and coins at the ready for purchases such as food, souvenirs, and attraction entry fees. Squirrel away larger bills in your under-clothing money pouch or


tuck them into a secure part of your


wallet or bag. Just use common sense and a few of these tips and you should be fi ne. Have a wonderful vacation! If you have a travel question or problem
