EAA284 Chapter Meeting Nov 10 2019

EAA Chapter 284 will hold its October Chapter Meeting on Sunday, November 10, 2019 at Red Stewart Airfield (40I) Tine 2:30 PM. Bob will go over the final financial report for our last Fly-In and Pancake Breakfast. Chapter renewal time is fast approaching. For 2019 our renewal fees were $359. I expect the fees will be about the same for 2020.

It’s also time to think about chapter officers for next year. We generally do this in an informal way by means of general consensus. If you are interested in a chapter office make your intention known at the meeting. The final choice will be made at our December meeting.

Here are a couple photos from our October meeting.

EAA284 Chapter Meeting Feb 10 2019

EAA Chapter 284 will be holding its February chapter meeting on Sunday, February 10, 2019 at 2:30 PM at the Red Stewart Airfield (40I), Waynesville, OH. It looks like it will be cold, but no snow.

At this months meeting, we will be exploring methods of sharing member information like photos on personal divvies such as IPADs and Android tablets. Rod and I have been working on several different devices that will permit mirroring your tablet or phone screen to a monitor. OS and Android operating systems use different methods. So far I have been able to mirror my IPAD and stream internet content. I am still working on my Android tablets.

The goal of this endeavor is to be able to share information among members at the meeting without having to create PowerPoint presentation of upload files to a more public forum such as YouTube or Google Docs. So bring your IPADs and tablets on Sunday.
