President Kuehl then read a very thorough list of presentations and meetings that we held in 2018. If we do as well for 2019 we will have another great year!

V.P. Ludeke then rose to present to the group our most recent purchase, a new sound system that will allow us to hear our speakers better, and most importantly, the YE’s waiting for turns to fly will hear their name being called. It was purchased with YE funds (which EAA national gives us each year). Thanks Gary for doing the legwork!!

Bill Dewey then rose to speak about completing the memorial garden and flagpole that Chapter 31 has been constructing for the last few years. He finally has all the permits and will erect the flagpole and install more pavers when the weather clears a bit. He also hopes to plant a new Japanese Maple in the area.

President John then spoke about the Christmas party we held in December. He made a last minute decision to reduce the cost to zero, and hoped that it would bring out more members to join the fun. As it was, we had 15 folks show up for the potluck and gift exchange. Closer to next Christmas, we will revisit the party particulars and see if we can make it even better attended.

He also noted that many of the YE pilots in our group need to go online and renew their background check info with EAA national. Please do so if you haven’t already. It expires every 3 years.

V.P. Gary then noted that he has installed a new Garmin G-5 In the cockpit of his RV-6.
