Newsletter of the Honeywell Retiree Social Club of Arizona

NOTE: This online version is a reformatted sub-set of the full version sent to paid-up members, with updates to event information since the Bridge was distributed.

For example, it does not contain names of recent retirees, new members, or members who have passed away, nor does it contain the list of member email addresses which is sent out from time to time.

Finally, there will typically be a delay of a week or so before a new month's version is posted here; if you want to get the Bridge as it comes off the press, become a member and request the full-color PDF version, the eBridge, which is sent by email. Note that Honeywell outsources the distribution of the black-and-white paper Bridge. It is typically delivered about two weeks after the PDF eBridge is delivered by email, so apart from news being a little old, members receiving only the paper copy may miss out on first come, first served signup for upcoming events.

President's Perspective

Ed Taschner

It seems we have lost touch with the Honey-Bunch-Lunchers whose monthly meetings are advertised in the Bridge. So ... I’m asking here that if you know of someone who is or was active in that group, please have them contact me so we can re-establish communications with them. If I don’t hear from anyone, we will assume this group is no longer functioning and remove reference to the Honey- Bunch-Lunchers in the Bridge.

Leadership continues to be a nagging concern because without new leaders helping with the club, the future for the club becomes unclear. Mind you, we have one of the most capable set of officers and directors currently leading the club but, we have learned that overriding personal or medical concerns have (rightfully) trumped the commitments of some individuals. We’re looking for three Directors, an Editor of this Bridge publication, a replacement for myself as President (for next year), and some soul to manage our Fix-It Guys group.

As for the Fix-It Guys, I’m sorry to announce that Clint Langford, SRC/HRSC member and leader of our Fix-It Guys group, passed away last month. He was a friend to all and is going to be missed by us and those whom his group helped over the years. Vaya con Dios, good friend.

Some changes to the Spring Picnic you may want to know about ... We have decided to hold our annual members’ meeting at the picnic in advance of the picnic itself. This is being done to reduce the work required to set up a members’ meeting and, quite frankly, is much better attended. While the picnic will still be a pot luck affair, we will have sandwiches catered and delivered to the site; more on that later.

Finally, let’s not forget our volunteer challenge in November. We are participating in a working event sponsored by Honeywell Aerospace. We’ll be working side-by-side with active Honeywell employees to help refurbish a Title 1 elementary school. No real skills required - just a big heart and some commitment to give back to our community. What a great opportunity to mix with our active employees and let them know about our retirement clubs.

Thought for the day: Isn't it scary that doctors call what they do "practice"? See you all at Oktoberfest!

FIX-IT Guys

Sponsored by the Honeywell & Sperry Retiree Clubs

Fix It Guy

We can help Honeywell retirees or surviving spouses with fix-it jobs around the house that you are not able to accomplish. This will hopefully keep the job from being a budget buster for you.

Call us at the appropriate number below and leave a clear message giving job information, your name, telephone number and nearest cross streets.

*Warren Koepsel is the Temporary Coordinator - 480-502-0852

We can probably help and will get back to you as quickly as practicable.

We furnish the labor at no cost to you; you furnish the cost of the parts.

           Below is a list of volunteer Fix-It Guys from the East and North Valley.

Are You a Fix-It Guy?

The Fix-It Guys are looking for a person who will take over the coordinator position for this much-called-upon group of volunteers.  If you’re interested, please contact Warren Koepsel at 480-502-0852 to get all the particulars. It will be well worth your time in not only helping some of your former co-workers or their spouses, but also in keeping the Fix-It Guys services available for future calls.

Tovrea Castle Tour November 4, 2016

The first 10 of 150 club members toured the castle. Demand has been so great we had to arrange 9 tours and having attended the first one I can see why. There is a fascinating history to both the grounds and the building that I will not reveal before others have gone. Suffice to say it was an enjoyable visit.  (Keith Hughes)

Tovrea Castle Tour, January 20, 2017

On a cold and cloudy day on Jan 20th, 2017 we had 22 people tour the Castle in the first of four exclusive club only tours. The group learned about the history of the castle and the surrounding area.

Southwest Airlines Tour – Jan 26, 2017

SW
                      Airlines Plane

SW Plane

Fifty club members from Air Research, Garrett, Allied, Honeywell and Sperry clubs toured Southwest Airlines Maintenance Facility. The two 737-700 aircraft in the hanger were undergoing their 500 day overhaul so we were unable to go aboard but our host, Kevin Bowman did a fine job explaining the facility operation and the history of the airline. We learned how the tail of the 737-700 aircraft is too tall for the hanger so they lift the nose wheel up to drop the tail to get the aircraft in the hanger.

This was our third visit and if there is sufficient interest we will arrange another visit in a few months.

Tovrea Castle Tour, February 11, 2017

In pleasant weather conditions, 23 of us were shown around the Castle and its grounds by enthusiastic volunteers from the Tovrea Carraro Society. Many thanks to Keith Hughes for arranging this, and for warning about the Loop 202 freeway closure; as a result of his heads-up, everyone arrived by 10am! (By the way, tour guides pronounce it "Toe-vree.")

"A DAY AT THE RACES"

Tuesday Feb 14, 2017


A balmy day, perfect for a horse race.  Hearts were in the air and all of us brought our special valentine.  Forty-four members and guests attended Honeywell/Sperry’s "Day at the Races". We had participants from all three retiree clubs, Honeywell, Garrett, and Sperry. I won all of the races and most members at my table won as well. The food was plentiful and good. Desserts were fabulous and filling. Leaving I felt like I could not wait until next year for this event. 

 

See you next year!

March 10, 2017


30 members enjoyed a very enlightening tour of the Amazon "PHX6" Fulfillment Center, whose area is equivalent to 28 football fields… We started with a video overview of the process from product delivery at the fulfillment center to shipment, and then had opportunities to observe the various stages of the process at close quarters, with commentary over headsets to overcome the quite high noise levels. Many thanks to Ed Taschner for organizing this; he came down to make sure all was well at the start of the tour, even though he was not on it.

Honeywell Aero Women’s Council April 4 Panel



The Deer Valley Chapter of Honeywell Aero Women’s Council (AWC) invited five former Aerospace professional women to participate in a panel discussion attended by current Honeywell employees regarding our experiences during our careers at Honeywell. (Kaye Eibeck, Linda Darnell, Sandy Thruston, Pam Kalish, and Jan Greisiger).

Topics discussed were designed to highlight personal experiences and enlighten current employees regarding the history of women’s employment in Aerospace.  The employees that attended the event were very appreciative of our participation and that we had helped paved the way for them through our determination and dedication to our jobs.

AWC and the Women in Honeywell Engineering Network (WHEN) expressed interest in continuing to include retirees in their future events and activities.

Dave Elston’s April 5 Talk on his Book
“A Year in the Grand Canyon”


Year in GCDave Elston, a third-generation Garrett employee and Grand Canyon hiker extraordinaire, gave a talk at the Garrett April 5 meeting based on his latest book, “A Year in the Grand Canyon,” published by Vishnu Temple Press. This documents his over 400 days spent in the Canyon. He provided summary highlights of his trips by chapter as follows:
  1. First Steps – found a dead body on very first hike.
  2. Thunder River – hyperthermia is no fun.
  3. Grandview Trail and Horseshoe Mesa – know when to bail out.
  4. Day Hike to prove a point – after surgery, Dave had to find out if he could still hike.
  5. Rim to Rim – information on ‘how to’ – South Rim water comes from the North Rim – water delivery system was the largest Park Service contract ever.
  6. Powell Plateau – unique – only access is North Rim – Anasazi abandoned location ~ 1150.
  7. Favorite East Rim hikes – Soap Creek, Spencer Trail, South Canyon.
  8. Clear Creek, Chevaya Falls & Human Remains – Arizona’s largest waterfall flows only seasonally – trail from Phantom Ranch – area used extensively by Native Americans.
  9. Fun on the river – commercial or private trips.
  10. Helpful tips and lessons learned – footwear, socks, pants, shirts, hats.
  11. What I have learned – Shoshone Point is the best viewpoint on the South Rim.
  12. Closing thoughts – Dave noted that about 19 people die each year at the Grand Canyon.


Anyone planning canyon hiking should refer to Dave’s book!

Palo Verde Nuclear Power Station Tour

Jan 10 & 31, 2018

These dates are full—looking for new dates.


Palo Verde Nuclear Power Station OverviewThis is a unique opportunity to get up close to a nuclear reactor. However, this tour requires a lot of walking across a very large 4,000-acre campus so you must be physically fit. Palo Verde is located 45 miles west of Phoenix off the I10 and is the largest nuclear power plant in the United States, serving about four million people.

The Palo Verde Generating Station is located in the Arizona desert, and is the only large nuclear power plant in the world that is not located near a large body of water. The power plant evaporates the water from the treated sewage from several nearby cities and towns to provide the cooling of the steam that it produces.

Each tour is limited to 20 people and starts on site at 9am. It starts with an overview briefing before a walking tour. Lunch will be provided followed by a question and answer session to finish between 1.30pm and 2.00pm. Considering the remote location we might want to organize ride share. I will limit the tickets to 2 per member but can add additional dates if demand is there. If you are unable to go check out the Energy Education Center Trip on another page.

If interested send the following to keith8411@cox.net.  I will need your Name, number of tickets (1 or 2), club affiliation, phone number and zip code (to help ride share). Please indicate if you are willing to take passengers.

Tovrea Castle Tours

Nov 4 & Nov 10, 2017
Jan 12 & Feb 2, 2018


These dates are all full.

Tovrea Castle

Tickets are $15 per person.

Tours are approximately 2 hours and include the historic Castle's main floor and basement, extensive grounds and cactus gardens surrounding the Castle. Most of the tour is outside riding a tram so dress warm.

The tour starts at 10 am and the grounds are cool. The tour is wheel chair accessible but no electric scooters are allowed. There are seats inside the building to rest so it is not a strenuous tour.

Guests are greeted by Tovrea Carraro Society volunteers at the Visitor Center and taken through the Carraro Cactus Gardens on a tram with a docent. The tour winds through the beautiful 44 acres, viewing the outer buildings, before arriving at Tovrea Castle.

The club would like to thank Tamera Zivic, Tovrea Carraro Society President for working with me (Keith Hughes) and allowing special group tours to fit our schedule.

Palo Verde Energy Education Center Tour


Feb TBD, 2018

Palo Verde Education Center OutsideThis tour is mainly for the members unable to go on the actual Palo Verde Nuclear Power Station tour but still wanting to learn about the facility.

The Palo Verde Energy Education Center (EEC) opened in 2011. The main purpose for this facility is to serve as an emergency base of operations in the event of a crisis at the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station (PVNGS), which is conveniently located 22 miles away. During non-ePalo Verde Education Center Insidemergency times, the center is used as a technical and education facility. Information from the PVNGS is displayed via live data streams and monitored closely by employees at the facility. They are able to communicate instantly with the individuals at the plant and other officials around the world if any issue arises at the nuclear plant.  At the center you will see digital maps of Palo Verde, Sample fuel rods, reactor models, emergency procedures, different reactor designs, power distribution and the use of treated water.

The center is easy to get to in Buckeye. No date has been set as I am looking to see interest. Normal days are Tuesday and Thursday and the limit is 100 people. If you are interested in going in February 2018, email keith8411@cox.net and ask to be put on the list.
