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.
President John
