Hopefully I will have received the necessary projector adaptors so that I can use my tablet for the demonstration.
Last month we discussed DYKEM layout fluid. I did find my bottle of steel blue. I will bring that for anyone interested.
Young Eagles – Members are encouraged to fly youth between age of 8 and 18 for Young Eagle rides. If you provide 10 YE rides in a year we will earn credits towards the Young Eagles program. This year in cooperation with Chapter 9 from Columbus and 48 from Dayton we earned enough credits to send Zarrick Conner to the Air Academy. EAA has updated the from this year. Sean Tucker is this years Young Eagles Chairperson. If you are providing YE rides EAA asks that you only use the current forms with Sean’s name on them and destroy any old form that you may have. I have requested a supply of the new form, and hopefully will have them by Sunday.
AirVenture – I know that there are a few of us who will be attending AirVenture this year and camping there. If you are planning on attending and cannot make Sunday’s meeting please let met know so that I can save camping space for you. Technically all space should be paid for from the time they are reserved or occupied. This has not been a major problem in the past as long as people are coming in Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
2014 Taildragger Fly In and Pancake Breakfast. This year our pancake breakfast will be on Sunday August 31st. We will clean the hanger and set up on Saturday the 30th. I have filed the event form and obtained the Insurance certificate for the event.
Other Events – Barnstormers Carnival at Springfield-Beckley Airport (SGH) July 19th & 20th. Starts at 11 both days. There will be a pancake breakfast on Saturday the 20th starting at 8 AM. The organizers will be borrowing our cooking equipment for their event. They will have personnel to load the equipment in their trailer after our meeting (about 4 PM). They will return the equipment on Monday July 21st. We should have 1 or 2 people available to help unload and check the equipment, and return it to storage.
Please bring any other information to share for Sunday’s meeting.
