Meeting Minutes from the 6/5/2019 meeting

EAA Chapter 31 Meeting, June 5th , 2019

The dinner portion of the meeting started at 6:00 PM hosted by Paul and Mai Messer. There was a wonderful Chinese meal with brownies and cake for desert and a drink for only $8. Don’t miss her next great meal!! Thanks Paul Messier and family!

The meeting started with the pledge of allegiance at 7:00 PM by President John Kuehl with V.P. Gary Ludeke and Secretary/ Treasurer Randy Stout also present. The business and entertainment portion of the meeting was called then to order. There were 18 members in attendance with no guests.

President John asked for help marking all chairs and tables with our “Chapter 31” mark so that he will feel comfortable loaning them to chapter 1457 for their event on July 30th.

Next Chapter breakfast is Saturday, June 15th. Come out to the clubhouse in the AM and pay $8 for an “all you can eat” breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, OJ, coffee and camaraderie!! Starts at 9:00 and runs to about 10:30 or so. Our volunteers for this breakfast are (hopefully) the same group as last time Tom, Bill, Rod and John, who will coordinate getting the breakfast ready to serve. Thanks in advance guys!

The upcoming YE event here at the clubhouse on July 4th was the next topic of conversation. We will meet on our regular meeting night of July 3rd to finalize the details. We will not have a dinner that night, so we will meet at 7:00. We will also discuss it at the Breakfast on the 15th with all who attend there. He asked everyone to go to the EAA YE web site and sign up for various duties and to make sure the pilots are covered with the background and flight time check.

He also noted that the Puget Sound Antique Aircraft club will be having a fly-out to Creswell on July 11th. EAA Chapter 31 will cook burgers and dogs from 10:30 or so until around 1:30 for this group. We need volunteers to help cook and organize. It should be a very interesting crowd with 4- Stearman, several N3N’s and approximately 20-30 aircraft. Don’t miss this fun event.

Bill Dewey then spoke about demo-ing the patio cover that was damaged by the snow this winter. Bill, John, Tom and Paul helped clean up the mess and pull the bad posts. The cleanup party did their thing on Saturday the 4th I believe. Thanks guys!!

With no further business, Paul Messier brought in the flight simulator that he purchased (for his very aviation minded kids) They proceeded to take off and land at Creswell Airport on the simulator, in between blowing up building, cars and themselves!! A very entertaining program that was quite an education for all of us as to the capabilities of Flight Simulators today. Thanks Paul!

With time running out, President John decided to forgo the showing of the Chapter Video this month.

There being no other business, the meeting was then adjourned at 8:30 PM
Respectfully submitted,
Randall Stout, Secretary/ Treasurer
