Oklahoma City Club

I was wondering if there is an active club in or near Oklahoma City. My wife works for Boeing and was just offered a promotion that will require us to move to Oklahoma City, provided they meet the salary requirements. I should be able to keep my civil service status by transferring to Tinker AFB.

While I am not thrilled about moving, it is a wonderful opportunity for her and I'm very proud of her.

And the Arkansas folks meet in Little Rock a bit to the east. All these clubs are great as are the people in them. We will be in OKC for the Roundup at the end of September. Last year I was in Tulsa and the year before was in Little Rock for that event.

Nice to know there are some Corvair folks out there. I'm 99.9% sure she will take the job. Their initial offer was at the bottom of her "hopeful" range. The fun part will be selling the house her in Georgia and moving a household, 4 cars, and 3 cats to OKC - 950-1050 miles, depending on the route taken. Tinker AFB is always hiring engineers, so my transfer there should be easy.

Hopefully the promotion will include a moving allowance!


That's the one and only time I hired a moving company!

Moving allowance would be nice, but I think they only do that for executives. She's in their leadership development program now, but this job will be a program management position on Air Force One, which is a cool job to have.

It is official now. She accepted the offer so now we're waiting on the date she is required to be there. We will put the house on the market this Wednesday. I talked with my boss and he said I should be able to transfer to Tinker AFB as a lateral move without having to go through the formal application/interview process.

Thanks! We hope to attend Springfest some. I've been a member of Heart of Georgia for 16 years. I consider my Corvair friends like family.

Not sure what date I'll be in OKC yet, but once there I'd love to hear from you when you fly out there.

Thanks everyone! It should be fun once we get there. Driving 4 cars and 3 cats will be the hard part.

David,
Oklahoma City's Corvair club is alive and well. We meet the second thursday of each month. We will be hosting the Great Plains Roundup at the end of September. We are hoping to get 100 vairs to show up. If you would like I can email you a flyer for that show.Or you can find it on our website. www.COKCCA.org. Like the others have stated there are several clubs nearby and someone usually has something going on. Welcome to Oklahoma.

An early welcome to the Midwest David. I've met several of the people from the Oklahoma clubs (Tulsa and OKC) and they're all great. There is also a Facebook page for the Great Plains Roundup if you're interested.

Quitter!!!!!! grinning smiley grinning smiley grinning smiley

We will certainly miss you and Heidi but know that life is filled with change and that you're doing the best thing for your family.

Just remember that the same road you're taking to Oklahoma will take you back to Georgia whenever you're up for a visit! thumbs up
