No November Symposium This Year

Following the great success of this year's International Airship Convention held in June, the decision has been made not to hold a Symposium this November. This will allow council to spend more time developing plans for the future of Airship Association.

An event will be held next year which will be announced in the December issue of AIRSHIP and on the web site.
