Sat Aug 18th 2018 EAA 31 Breakfast Notice

SATURDAY AUG 18th 9:00 AM BREAKFAST NOTICE
Lots of things to cover. Refrigerator inventory indicates we needed Bacon, OJ and Milk. Will bring that with me.
YOUNG EAGLES. We will go over improvements we can implement for our 4th of July YE flights at our next monthly meeting. In the mean time there are other things we can do. Got a call from Paul Metzer (hope I have that spelled correctly). Two of his 4 boys got YE flights on the 4th of July, the other two were in California. Was there any chance they could YE flights this Saturday? Don’t know -will check on it. Phoned Gar Burroughs, President of 1524 Albany (they fly YE every 4th Sat, weather permitting) and phoned EAA headquarters, OshKosh. Turns out that a regularly scheduled pancake breakfast is an EAA event AND Young Eagle flights can be part of same. I requested that EAA YE insurance be given for every 3rd Saturday for Chapter 31 Creswell. SO – we’re going to give this a try. We need to do more to get young people interested in Aviation. This Saturday we will have an additional 6 people (the whole family) join us for breakfast. 2 of them are seeking a YE flight. If we have any pilots with planes willing we can get that accomplished. Hopefully we can make this a regular event. IF: (1) weather permitting. (2) EAA pilot(s) willing and available. (3) Young folks wanting a YE flight. We won’t need to do advertising. The word will get around. Albany ranges 2 to 6 and they do it all day. The most they ever had was 17. We will get the word out – “Be there for the breakfast – to catch a flight” We will see how that goes.
OshKosh was absolutely GREAT! Don’t get me started – I’ll talk your ear off. See you at this Saturday’s breakfast. We will need cook/kitchen help. Some of our regulars are out of town.

Breakfast and Roof Letters

This Saturday May 19th 2018 after breakfast we’re gonna “Paint the Town” (Actually we will lay out and paint “EAA 31″ in 11 foot high letters on the roof of the hangar.) The layout, diagrams, measurements etc are on paper. We just need to do them on the roof. Paint, rollers, etc all purchased. We will snap lines on the top of the 9” spaced ribs. Draw guide lines. Draw the letters and numbers (one at a time). Brush the interior edges, the roll the rest of the letters and numbers. This will be reviewed in detail before we get started.

We will need:
Agile (or at least very careful) bodies, Extension ladders (I will bring one extension and one Little Giant). Non slip footgear (no leather souls). All of this is weather dependent. If the weather is bad or if the roof is even damp, we will delay until another time. SO – after a delectable $8 dollar breakfast, we have work to do to put EAA 31 on the map. Call me if you have any questions or suggestions 541 729 1217. Pres John

EAA31 Breakfast and work party

This Saturday Nov 18th after our Monthly breakfast we will begin work on our shiny new floor.  Here’s what we will need to do:

Move EVERYTHING to the back half of the hangar.

Preparation is everything.

Thoroughly clean the floor:  1st vac, then scrub/clean with cleaner, then etch with TSP (TriSodiumPhosphate), then rinse, then patch, where needed, with grout.

We will need to keep the place well heated to get good bonding for the paint, so the mechanical timer switches will need to be temporarily replaced with regular switches.

Then, on Sunday the 19th at 2:30 we can do the fun part.  Actually roll on the paint.

We already have 6 Gallons of BEHR one part epoxy paint (silver gray).  Cleaner, TSP, Mop, bucket, water, Sandpaper, patching grout, Paint roller, Pan, Cutting in brushes, etc.

We can decide on Saturday whether we want to do the 2nd half of the floor on the following weekend (Thanksgiving week end) OR on Dec 2nd (The Joint Christmas Party at John Stahrs date)

See you there.  President John
