The first is to login to your google account, then go to groups.google.com, search for the group you want to join, and click the “join this group” or “contact the owner” button. The second is to send an email to email@example.com and indicate you want to join. Once you have joined you can post to the list by using the email address of the group. Meetings of the committees will be announced on the mailing lists.

Wikipedia tells us that
John Gilbert “Tex” Rankin (January 20, 1894, Texas – February 23, 1947 Klamath Falls) was an aerobatic pilot, barnstormer, air racer, and flight instructor from the 1920s to the 1940s. Born in Texas on January 20, 1894, Rankin began flying in 1913, when airplanes were still considered a new oddity.
If you search for “Tex Rankin” on Google you will find a lot of biographical and aeronautical information, and a long list of accomplishments, including national championships and world records. The man is a legend. Here is a picture of him, next to a plane with identification number 13 and with a black cat that accompanied him on his flights, tempting fate.
