The Spruce Goose - presentation by Steve Garfein

Steve GarfeinRotarian Steve shared a preview of what those participating in the upcoming Spruce Goose tour in McMinnville, OR will get to see. Steve’s interest in Howard Hughes stems from his experience working at Hughes Aircraft on the Apache Helicopter project. While he didn’t ever meet Hughes, his project was directly affected by Hughes’ micromanagement. Steve explained that the use of composites on the Spruce Goose (which is not really made of Spruce wood) led to the use of com posites on the Apache. Steve has written a screenplay about Hughes life following his catastrophic crash in Beverly Hills . He described the only Spruce Goose flight. It was not intended to fly, but lifted off as it sped along the water because of the massive thrust of its eight powerful engines. Only the skill of Hughes’ copilot prevented a crash landing. 

Classification talk by Jackie Wood

Jackie WoodEach new member to our club gives a "classification talk" to tell other members something about his or her life and work. Jackie Wood presented her Classification Talk. She was born in Hong Kong, and her first language was Chinese. Her family later moved to Honolulu, where she grew up. After high school, she attended Cornell University to study Hotel Management and was subsequently hired by the Four Seasons Hotel in Seattle. She later moved through a number of local companies, including Microsoft, and finally landed in marketing with Washington Mutual. She was able to conduct her duties from her home in Indianola and finally decided she should start her own event planning business, Sparkwood Events.
