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.

EAA Chapter 284 will hold its June meeting on Sunday, June 14th at 2:30 PM at Red Stewart Airfield. The Stewarts still prefer meetings not be held  inside, so we will hold our meeting at the hanger. 

Today I watched  the webinar on recommendations for food service operation. I tried to call the Warren County Health Department for their current standards. Unfortunately I had to leave a voice mail. Perhaps they will call tomorrow. We will discuss our upcoming Taildragger fly in.

Our meeting will be held at the hanger that we use for the pancake breakfast. Tim Carrier and I have discussed the logistics of this location. John Belluardo’s Luscombe is in the hanger and we believe that we can accommodate this issues. John has agreed to accommodate us.

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.
