July 7th, 2010 meeting

The meeting started at 6:00 with our normal BBQ hamburgers and hot dogs, salad and cookies. Mighty fine!

Meeting called to order at 7:01 PM by V.P. Bill Dewey and Sec./Tres. Randy Stout also present. President Ben Hallert was absent with leave. The 18 members and guests in attendance then introduced themselves and gave a brief “What exciting thing happened this last month”. Among the guests was John Wagner (who wants to build and RV-8), Ted Glick (EWEB employee who wants to build a RV-7) and Ted Walkup SR. and JR., here to discuss the memorial plans.

The next breakfast will be held on Saturday, 17th of July, and it will be in conjunction with the OACAC Oregon Air Tour start. Be there !

Member Tom Urban (541-741-4117) has a WagAero 2+2 (PA-14 clone) for sale. It has most parts, the fuselage is welded and ready. He reports that the parts would sell for $20,000 from WagAero, but he only wants $8000. He also has a run out 0-320 core for $3800.

As President Ben was absent, and Walt and Randy had all the parts except the lag bolts (which disappeared), so the projector bracket project is not yet complete. However, Walt and Randy did manage to get a large white board screen put up.

The Memorial Area plans are progressing.  We received a copy of a letter from Paul Ehrhardt, a retired contractor, who has offered to help with this project. He had actually approached the City Council a year ago, but nothing came of it. Randy contacted him and he expressed an interest in furthering this project. Several board members and other interested people will meet with him in July to see how next to proceed.

Charlie Walker thanked the group and noted that he has found room to store his fuselage cradle.

Brent Burgess then provided the club with info on Samantha Thomas, a young lady very interested in aviation and the aviation camp at LCC this August 9th to 13th. The cost is $490 and includes 3 hours of flight training. The board is still trying to create a process of establishing a scholarship fund for a kid or kids to go to aviation camps. With that in mind, the officers are asking anyone who also knows of a worthy family to forward this info to Ben. We will review all the info and try to make a decision in time for this summers camps.

There being no new business, the meeting was adjourned at 8:39 PM . Next month bring a video that we can all enjoy with our new projector!

Respectfully submitted,  Randall Stout
Secretary/ Treasurer
