Meeting Minutes from the 9/6/2023 Meeting

Meeting Minutes from the 9/6/2023 meeting.

President Rod Johnson, VP Eric Farry and Secretary/ Treasurer Randy Stout as officers were present when the Meeting started at 7:07 PM at the clubhouse in Creswell. There were 12 Members, and two guests in attendance. Our guests were Kimberly Witchie and Mike Barco. Welcome to you all!!

President Rod Johnson, and Past Presidents Pat Dodson and Bill Dewey (broken arm an all!) prepared dinner, which consisted of hamburgers, Hot dogs, salads, Chips, Cookies, and a drink- for $8.00. Thanks guys! We almost had Emu meat for the grill as a full-sized Emu wandered by. He was given a complimentary hamburger and sent on his way but not before creating a bit of a hazard on the taxiway. We noticed that the Sheriff Dept. cornered him at the RV dealership, so hopefully he was re-united with his (her?) owner.

President Rod Johnson called the meeting to order. He then presented to the group a new banner from EAA National that commemorates our 1000th Young Eagle flight that occurred recently. We all decided where to hang it and thanks were given to everyone who helped with this milestone.

Also, a huge thanks to Rod Johnson who single-handedly cleaned the clubhouse for the meeting. A big job and much needed and appreciated!  Thanks Rod!

Our next piece of business was to decide to move the 3rd Saturday breakfast (for October only) to the 2nd Saturday, which will be October 14th. This will allow us to host several groups who will be observing the

‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar Eclipse

The group approved of this change and so we will make breakfast at that time.

Remember our next monthly breakfast will be on the 3rd Saturday of the month. We need members to help make the fixings. Walt Weischedel is bringing eggs, but Pat Dodson will be gone. The next breakfast will be on September 16th at the clubhouse starting at 9:00. Eggs, Bacon, Pancakes and Juice or Coffee for $8- a bargain!! See you there!

Secretary Stout noted that the bricks that we have ordered for the Memorial Garden by the FBO have been shipped. He was disappointed that they did not arrive in time for the meeting.

The checkbook balance is now $1621.01

It was noted that the very popular Chicken Run fly-in at Gillette Field in Scio will be held on September 24th between 10:30 and 4:00.  Always a great event!

Gary Ludeke was then asked to take the floor and discuss the plans for the “Build and Fly” RC model build that the club purchased from EAA National early in the year. He and Pat Dodson will be speaking with the students at Creswell High next Monday. They will bring the project to future meetings as they progress on the build and report on the progress they are making. He also noted that Creswell Airport will be closed on September 12th and 13th for final project wrap ups.

The Flying Octogenarians group has opened membership up to folk who are flying at age 75-79. This is a restricted membership but an opportunity to join folks of a certain age for fun and facts about flying as we age.

John Kuehl noted that was unable to download the Chapter Video but that the most recent video gram noted that the FAA has now changed the LSA regulations. He was unsure of the final rules but noted that they are heavily favorable to those flying Light Sport.

There being no other business the meeting was adjourned by President Johnson at 7:35PM.

Respectfully submitted,

Randall Stout, Secretary/ Treasurer
