Toledo Express Tower (TOL) Local Membership Meeting
Out of the 16 members at TOL, nine joined their brothers and sisters with family and friends at a Mud Hens baseball game. NATCA Executive Vice President Trish Gilbert spoke at the meeting of the importance of being involved at NATCA. Mike Hanlon (NGL Legislative Chair, ZOB), Dave Vosters (NGL Reloaded, D21) and Bryan Zilonis (GL Region Vice President) also spoke about the various ways to get involved. At the meeting the Local also recognized Brian Vidis for his six years in office as Local Treasurer. He will be leaving for Moses Lake, Wash., next month.

The tower at Oshkosh (OSH), which during last week's EAA AirVenture 2012 event, was the world's busiest, as the banner says. And the sign outside NATCA's tent welcomed pilots and guests to an array of interesting discussions.
