EAA284 Chapter Meeting Oct 11 2020

EAA Chapter 284 will hold its October 2020 Chapter Meeting on Sunday, October 11th. Time 2:30 PM at the chapter hanger at Red Stewart Airfield (40I) 

Last month Tim and I set up a Wi-Fi range extender. It is now possible to connect with the Stewart’s Wi-Fi in the hanger.

Its time to think about chapter officers for 2021. We still have $75.00 in Young Eagles credit from last you. This money must be spent soon. The requirement is that the money must be spent on something that supports the Young Eagles program. This requirement is interpreted rather broadly. 

October may be the last month this year when we can meet in the hanger. We should explore ideas for alternate meeting locations. The weather for Sunday looks to be sunny in the low to mid-70’s. The is a possibility that we may have some rain or wind as an after-effect of Hurricane Delta. The Hurricane is expected to this the Louisiana/Texas coast on Friday morning as a category 2 so effects this far North will probably minimal. 

See folks on Sunday.

EAA Chapter 284 Meeting September 13 2020

EAA Chapter 284 will hold its September chapter meeting on Sunday, September 13th at Red Stewart Airfield Time 2:30 PM. We will be meeting at the hanger. 

EAA Chapter 974 will hold an outdoor movie this Saturday at their hanger at Butler Regional Airport,Time 7:30 – 10:30 The movie is 1941 There will be a taco food truck for eats.

Last year our chapter earned $75.00 in Young Eagle credits. We had voted to donate the money to Chapter 48 so they could send a young person to Air Camp. Air Camp was cancelled this year so the money stays with us. The main stipulation is that the money must be spent on something that helps support Young Eagle activities. The guidelines are pretty loose. We should discuss how the spend the money at out meeting. We also have plans to install a range extender so that we can receive WI-FI signals in the hanger.

The weather forecast for Sunday is temperatures in the upper 70’s with a chance of rain in the afternoon. If there is no rain we can meet in front of the hanger. If thee is rain we can meet inside the hanger. We are generally a small group so that should not be a major issue.

The agenda will be 3D printing and my recent experience. There will be a demonstration of TinkerCad. We will be able to set up a TV with a computer hook up.

We will also need to have a short discussion about our annual pancake breakfast and Taildragger Fly In.

We have had a request from another chapter to donate our Young Eagle credits to them so that they can send two of their Young Eagles to Air Camp. We currently have 15 YE credits valued at $5.00 each. We can spend the money on something to directly benefit our YE program od donate them to another chapter or return them to the EAA. A few years ago several chapters donated YE credits to us so that we could send a YE to Air Camp. Unfortunately, that person experienced a family health emergency and was unable to attend.
