We WILL NOT be using e-Services for these nominations. Instead, the “paper” CAPF 120 will be used. An electronic

 All nominations are to be sent to: awards@wawg.cap.gov. 
 THE DEADLINE IS 15 DECEMBER 2019.

The awards nominations will be reviewed by the Wing 
Awards Review Board and the Wing Commander. The 
awards that are approved will be presented at the Spring Conference and forwarded to Pacific Region for nominations 
at that level and higher.

This list is not all-inclusive. If you feel a member deserves recognition in another area, it can be submitted.

The guidelines in CAPP 39-3 (“Awards Made Easy” will 
assist you with the formats and has other tips for 
completing the CAPF 120. DO NOT MENTION THE NAME 
OF THE AWARD BEING SUBMITTED IN THE NOMINATION NARRATIVE.

Be sure to attach any special documentation, photos, news releases, etc., to the nomination. That definitely adds weight 
to your recommendation.

If you have questions or need assistance with this process, please do not hesitate to contact me or a member of my

Washington Wing Glider Program Update
---- -- --------------------------------------------    --     --------- - - ---------       --------          --
Our Washington Wing Glider Program is up and running at Camp Boucher in Ephrata, WA.

We will be flying again on the weekend of October 12th and 
13th in conjunction with a WAMA training weekend. Cadet O Flights as well as senior training flights are planned.

At the end of the October weekend we will be de rigging our
 2 gliders and putting them in their trailers in preparation for relocation to the mechanic for their required annual 
inspection and winter storage.

We will be scheduling O Flight events starting in March or 
April next year depending on the weather. We will be 
scheduling events 2 weekends a month.

Watch for announcements on our Wing web site in the "Activities/WAMA " and “Activities/Glider Orientation 
Flights" sections.

We will be asking Squadrons to bring a van, a senior driver 
and 4 to 5 cadets to arrive on Friday evening to fly on 
Saturday and return home Saturday afternoon and a second group to arrive Saturday evening to fly on Sunday.

Registration will be handled on line with the registration and instructions available on the Wing web site. The fees are 
posted on the web site.

Our plan is to give every cadet in our Wing their first glider O Flight and give cadets additional glider O Flights and training 
to introduce them to the world of aviation and encourage 
them to attend the Flight Academy and pursue a career in aviation.

We are continuing with the implementation of the plan to get additional Senior Glider flight Team members qualified to support both O Flights and our Flight Academy next year.

Senior members interested in participating should contact Captain Mike Gilbreath at mike.gilb@yahoo.com

If you have questions, review the program overview on the 
Wing web site in the “Activities/Glider Orientation Flights” section.
