Meeting Minutes for the 4/4/2018 meeting

EAA Chapter 31 Meeting, April 4th, 2018

The dinner portion of the meeting started at 6:00 PM with our hosts John and Ruth Kuehl providing a great “fix your own hard or soft Taco” meal with all the trimmings and candy and/or Ice Cream for desert along with drinks for only $8! Thanks Ruth and John!! Bill Dewey has offered to handle the food for the next meeting. Wait for further notifications as to what we are sure to enjoy in a month! See you at the next dinner/meeting!!

The meeting started with the pledge of allegiance at 6:55 PM. President John Kuehl, V.P. Gary Ludeke and Secretary/ Treasurer Randy Stout were present. The business and entertainment portion of the meeting was then called to order. There were 19 members and guests in attendance.

Next Chapter breakfast is Saturday, April 21st. 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. Thanks in advance for all the guys who show up and cook the meal! President John will not be here as he is attending the leadership conference at EAA national on that date.

Bill Dewey noted that their flying club airplane (a C-150) is nearly done and ready to go. There is just a bit of paperwork left. Contact him if you are interested. 541-345-0480

Secretary Stout then reminded the group about name tags. Everyone in attendance should have their name tag on, just to make sure we get to know each other better. From now on, anyone without a name tag (except for those who have not gotten one yet) prominently displayed will be charged $1. At the end of the year, the $1 fine jar will be given away at the Christmas party. Sound like fun!

With no other new or old business, Pres. John introduced our speaker for the evening, Gary Ludeke. Gary gave a very thorough slide presentation about the various airspaces and their visibility, tower contact and cloud clearance requirements. It was a good refresher for all of us who will be getting their BFR’s in the near future. Thanks Gary!

We then watched a vintage “Andy Griffith Show” episode, where Aunt Bea learns to fly (a 172). Very nostalgic and entertaining.

President John then decided that there was enough time to present the EAA Monthly Chapter Video, which we all enjoyed.
There being no other business, President John then adjourned at 8:27

respectfully submitted,
Randall Stout, Secretary/ Treasurer
