    So, my cousin is getting married this summer. She's been bouncing around for weeks/months trying to figure out where and when. Found out last night she finally decided on a date. July 1st. At first, it appears to be just any other date, then I start to think about it. 07-01-2010...or 7110...

    Associate Membership

    Someone in another thread mentioned free NATCA pocket calendars. I then proceeded to make a joke about how I wanted to sign up to get the calendar even though I still have yet to get an academy date. (While that was a joke, if you want to send me a NATCA calendar or t shirt, I'd be ok with...
