    I'm going to propse:
    - Loved flying with her friends

    I think it's better for the wall at Oshkosh then "Living life to its fullest" (since it says flying) and it's so rooted to the Babes she helped to create.

    I need to get back on the Babes Board but I can't remember my password there. :redface:

    [SIZE=+1]dammit, dammit, dammit, dammit, dammit. :( :( :(

    I got rid of the 'net at home and haven't been around much so I didn't see this until today, just now, and it makes me sooo damned sad to read this. She was a bright light and a talent in so very many disciplines and I was so very impressed by her, in so many ways.

    The last time I saw her was at airventure a few years ago - we had lunch together, but it was cut short as I had to scoot back to the plane and get ready to fly out to make it aloft before the airshow started. I can still hear her voice in my head reminding me to call her when we landed back in NC so I could "close out my Moxie flight plan".

    so very damn sad... :( :( :( :( :(

    Blue skies, Mox'... blue skies.

    Here's one, Dave - That was also where I met you in person for the first time. Lance flew her in, I flew her home.

    (L-R: Me, Moxie, Dave S, Lance F)

    And another one from a month or two later - This one at Lake Lawn, one of Moxie's favorite places to fly in. This was also where I met Bruce in person for the first time.

    [​IMG]
    (L-R: Me, Barry S, Moxie, "Flash," Bruce, and Terry - old "yellow boarders")

    Moxie will be missed by the world, as she's one of the people who truly made it a better place.

    I'm probably a pilot today because my dad died of cancer...I used the money I got a few years back to finance my training, PPL thru Commercial.

    Okay, I'm working with Tom Brunhart on the bio page that goes with the memorial. He's put together a start here, but we think it needs more about her flying activities. Tidbits to add? We have about 500 words to work with.

    Nice start. A couple of typos here (quick glance). Is the "Brinck's" spelling correct? It's different than the "BRINK" in her name at the top...

    Actually, it's incorrect at the top. It has a 'C' in it. There are a couple of other missing spaces, etc., too.

    Edit: We've fixed it, and I changed the original link to point to the corrected version. Here's the text in the document:
    (I slightly modified the sentence about her mother's divorce)

    It would be good if something, if ever so brief, could be written about her undeniable influence on empowering women in the male-dominated pursuit of aviation. The way she approached it was less a crusade, and more a relentless and inevitable force.

    The kind of force that only a strong woman can apply.

    Ya know....nothing says thanks for everything Moxie like your own intersection or waypoint. I think MOXIE would be just perfect in the greater MKE area. Arnav isn't showing it as active and I'll see if it's in the cue tomorrow. Can't imagine a name that good isn't on a chart somewhere. We'll see.

    "She founded Brinck’s Goldsmith Jewelry in Wauwatosa, WI in and was sought after to create customized jewelry for clientele from across the nation for 10 years in the 80’s. But, her call to fly was more compelling than art."

    Just a question: Why is the word "in" following Wauwatosa, WI? It seems unnecessary. Read the line aloud and it doesn't sound correct.
    Also, I believe the apostrophe should be removed from 80's. Plurality(of years) is referenced, not a possessive application.

    Above, only suggestions.

    Somewhere either in WI or a location where the Babes met during its heyday?

    Not to be a nitpicker or anything but shouldn't this sentence read...
    ...since John was the one who adopted Barbara. She was already Jennie's daughter.

    Nice idea about the waypoint, Bro! :thumbsup:

    I appreciate the editing for style and syntax, but I really want to incorporate additional AVIATION content and then proofread the result. Just seems more efficient that way.

    Edit: Blanche and Mari, I did make the suggested changes, so they don't get lost.

    MOXIE appears to be a SID waypoint just off the Pacific coast, south of LAX.

    I find it when I search in ForeFlight, but don't find it on any if the SIDs. Do you know which one?

    Edit: It looks like it is on the Senic One Departure (RNAV) for Long Beach.

    In today's PC culture, I can't see the FAA approving a waypoint BABES.

    *sigh*

    My how the rules for getting an intersection or waypoint changed in just a few years.
    I've made some inquiries about getting something named for Moxie and it's going to be a process.
    I've got some letters to write but I know who I'm writing to well enough that maybe this'll work. The biggie is I have no assurance that the waypoint or intersection is going to be anywhere near where we'd probably like it to be.
    Well, let's see how it goes.

    DUCKY is near Corpus Christie, TX.

    No BABES that I can find.

    Perhaps if they knew the reason for the request they'd be OK with it.

    Why not, when they have a VOR named "Crazy Woman?" (CZI)

    :yeahthat:

    A group of POA and Babes pilots, in holds, stacked 1000' above each other, on the anniversary of her death, would be some tribute...

    Does anyone have or know how to get her EAA member number? I'm pretty sure she was a member, They want it on the memorial application.

    Go to the Babes and Airplanes forum, look for Blackdog's profile, Moxie's sister Jean, and Jean might be able to research the information.

    Here's the latest version. Including the poem and quotation, it's at 498 words, and we are given 500 words maximum. I removed a bit about her parents to fit in more flying content. The photo isn't shown, but will be displayed in the upper right corner.
