Wednesday November 3rd

Please join us on Wednesday, November 3, 2004 at the Greenbriar Country Club, 12665 Big Bend Road, for a presentation featuring Leonard Thomas of Sanborn, a nationwide aerial mapping company with it's Midwest office at Spirit Airport. (No they don't use U-2s - they have other aircraft with specialized cameras.)

Sanborn has mapped approximately 12,000 communities across the United States and have archived over one million maps. As Regional manager for St. Louis Operations, Mr. Thomas is responsible for monitoring and evaluating all major projects. He has over 15 years experience in photogrammetry (come to the meeting and learn what that is) and mapping services, including the US Army Corps of Engineers where Mr. Thomas had served in the Intelligence section as a Combat Engineer. His resume includes aerial photography, GIS base mapping, GPS control surveys, and other technologies employed in the mapping industry for various cities and counties of Missouri, the Missouri and Illinois DOT, and the state of Kansas.

Leonard's presentation is certain to be exciting and informative so don't miss it! Social hour (cash bar) begins at 1800; dinner ($16.00) is at 1900. Seating is limited so reservations are required. Please contact Carol Weber by email Carol@MoPilots.US or phone 636-458-2529 no later than Monday November 1st if you plan to attend.

(Have a present you don't know what to do with it? Bring it to the Meeting
and donate it to our 50/50. You'll get 3 free tickets for each item donated.)

Name Tags

Name Tags on sturdy heavy plastic that can be worn with a clip or lanyard are now available for $5. They are in full color and very durable since the graphics are imbedded in the plastic vs. being printed on the plastic. You can even use them as ice scrapers! Belong to another organization? With a picture of your logo name tags can also be made for your other organization.

To order call Mark at 636-485-7465.
