Meeting Minutes from the 3/2/2022 meeting

Meeting Minutes from the 3/2/2022 meeting.

President Rod Johnson, V.P. Eric Farry and Secretary/ Treasurer Randy Stout as officers were present when the Meeting started at 7:04PM at the clubhouse in Creswell. There were 12 Members and 2 guests in attendance.

Dinner was prepared by Past President Pat Dodson, V.P. Eric Farry and President Rod Johnson, and consisted of Hot Dogs and Hamburgers, salad, Cookies and a drink- for $8.!!

President Rod Johnson called the meeting to order and invited his guest, James Collett and his cousin to give their presentation on their recent acquisition of a KR-2.

 James gave a nice talk about how he came about acquiring this KR-2 (something to do with a trade for a pickup!) and his work on it. It was originally built in 2004, and then rebuilt (partially) in 2016. They are chasing some gremlins in the carburetor and a few other things necessary to get it airworthy. He is a low time pilot so was encouraged to get a lot of instruction before hopping into this little hot rod. We were invited and joined him after the meeting to look over his airplane in order to help with ideas and suggestions. Thanks James!

It was decided to start with our monthly breakfast on the 3rd Saturday of the month starting in April. We will need someone to step up to cook and will finalize the staff at the next meeting.

Treasurer Stout noted again that Dues for 2022 are due now, and that many of the folks in attendance have paid them. If you cannot attend the meetings (due to Covid or schedule), it would be much appreciated if you would send a check made out to “EAA Chapter 31” for $25 and send this to:

86277 Panorama Road, Springfield, OR  97478

The checkbook balance is now $1173.67so we could really use the funds for our normal expenses.

Secretary Stout has contacted EAA National about hosting our website and emailing all the pilots in our area when we have an event or meeting. Unfortunately, they do not have a way to email all our members out of the web site, so he will just have to renew the old web site until a better option is found. He would also like to find a “sparkplug” person who is interested in heading the build on a new Carbon Cub that the club can take on as a project. Paul Beuhler has indicated an interest. Know anyone else who wants to help???

Dave Eason then rose and asked the group if they knew of a 20’ trailer available for him to go and get a Sportsman 2+2. If so, give him a call.

There being no other business the meeting was adjourned at 7:35PM and everyone went over to James hanger and took a good look at his KR-2

Respectfully submitted,

Randall Stout, Secretary/ Treasurer
