Get the Latest SWPC Convention (& other) News via Email!

The 2013 Short Wings Over Saratoga Convention is just days away!  Have you been wondering how you are going to stay up to date with what is going on in New York? Well, the website is going to be a great resource for you whether you are at the convention or just wishing you could be there.

We’ll be posting Convention news on our  website as well as pictures of airplanes and people having fun on our Latest News page. The Latest News page also shows non-convention news – though during the week of Short Wings Over Saratoga pretty much all  news will be Convention news – so if you want to just to a Convention News only page, click on the Latest Convention News link under SWPC Convention in the blue navigation bar near the top of the website.

That’s all great, but have you ever wished you could get the latest SWPC news delivered right to your email in box?

Well, guess what? We have a new website feature that will send all Latest News posts right to your email!

You can now subscribe to our Latest News posts if you enter your email address in the box below “Get our Latest News Posts via email” found in the gray section at the bottom of our website. Once you do this, you click on  “Subscribe” and will get a message saying you should check your email for a message directing you to confirm your subscription and then you’ll get all of the latest Short Wing Piper Club news right in your email box!
