Well if you are a Tailhooker, we expect to see you at the Tilted Kilt!
From “Spike” Prendergast:
Just a reminder that Tomorrow, Wednesday evening (29 July) is our July get-together at “The Tilted Kilt”. As you can see from the attached photos, the wait staff has been very diligent in getting “briefed up” on carrier aviation and the A-6 Intruder during their recent visit to USS MIDWAY in preps for the event. Looking forward to seeing you all there in support of the Intruder Association’s Scholarship fund.
Hey! If an F-4 Guy is supporting the cause of the A-6 Bubbas, ya know it’s gotta be a worthy cause! Get out and join your fellow Tailhookers at the Tilted kilt! Details below…
Wednesday, 29 July, at “The Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery” (link), also known as “the best looking sports pub you’ve ever seen”. The San Diego Intruder Association (link) is hosting this special San Diego Tailhook Ready Room event as a fund raiser for the Intruder Association Scholarship Fund administered by the Tailhook Organization. You will enjoy the finest pub grub food, Tilted Kilt's Ale, wine, Tailhook videos, participation in the event raffles that include Padre and Tailhook memorabilia (Padre memorabilia donated by the Padres and Tilted Kilt management), USS Midway Aircraft Carrier Museum tickets, camaraderie with your fellow Tailhookers and Tilted Kilt clientele, and pictures with the Tilted Kilt hostesses. As usual, the mission of 'Attack' and the singular role of the aircraft carrier to put attack aviation within strike distance of the enemy will be greatly debated between the fighter and attack squadron mates.
Rules of Engagement: "Charlie time" will be 1700 (5:00 PM). The evening's charge is $30 per person which includes all food, Tilted Kilt ale, and wine and a scholarship fund contribution. No bar fines will be charged for pictures with the Tilted Kilt hostesses.
Dress casual and don't hesitate to breakout and wear your beloved flight suit or Tailhook attire. As always, please feel free to bring spouses, significant others, friends, whatever. The more the merrier!
If you have Tailhook aviation videos (DVD format) you'd like to share with your squadron mates, let Clyde Cain (firstname.lastname@example.org) know and bring them to the event.
Directions: “The Tilted Kilt” is located at 310 10th Ave at the intersection of 10th Avenue and “K” Street immediately north of Petco Park (map) . There is ample covered public parking in the area, and the Padres are on the road that week, so the Padre PETCO Park Lot and curbside parking should be no problem either.
It will be a great event for a good cause...see you at the Kilt!
