Keep On Flying – and eating!
The Flying Hamburger Social continues to be a hit! The attendance at the last Medford hosted event was outstanding. The weather was nice and planes turned out by the dozens! We had to go get more food too! Thanks to all who helped make it a success.
We had a nice variety of airplanes flying in. Experimental, classic and everything in between. It was a very good day.
PANCAKE ALERT – 7/28!
It’s that time of year again. Time for the biggest fund raiser for our chapter. Setup will be Friday evening 7/26 starting at 7:00 PM. Members are asked to show up for the breakfast at 7:00 AM on the 28th.
PARKING REMINDER: The paved parking spots next to the hangar are premium spots and we have a lot of retired folks and handicap folks attending. At one time last year there were 14 cars with handicap plates! If you drive a car please park along the fence and leave the front spots that are paved for handicap accessibility. Also, if you drive a motorcycle do NOT take up a parking spot, instead park along the side of the hangar.
Meeting held at the Marshfield Municipal airport/ Board room.
Chris Owens, Noreen Moen, Alan Hughes, Al Mader, Tom Jablonicky, Harry Dolan, Tyler Stargardt
Chris opened the meeting at 7 p.m.
Noreen read the notes made at last month’s meeting. As no formal meeting had been held, no vote was taken on accepting the minutes.
Harry presented the financial report for July 8, 2013. Since the last report was filed, $80 in chapter membership dues had been deposited, and no disbursements made.
Current bank balance: $3,473.03.
Chris reported that arrangements have been made for a B17 ride for Mr. Johnson. His flight will take place at an event held in Madison on July 27, at 10a.m. Chris plans on leaving here at 7 to attend – and be with the family as they participate. Other members are invited to participate. The price of the flight -$409.00
Some details for our fly-in/breakfast were discussed. Set up will be on the preceding Friday evening at 7 p.m. Members should be at the airport about 7 am on the 28th – and should bring any additional volunteers they can round up.
Posters about the event were made available – and signage – additional posters and signs can be picked up at the Marshfield airport – during business hours.
A brief discussion followed concerning the low number of pilots that participate in chapter activities – no solutions to that problem were presented but it was proposed that pilots be sought out – as they purchase tickets at the breakfast – and encouraged to join the chapter and to take part in chapter activities.
Supplies for the breakfast were mentioned – large coolers, heavy duty extension cords, ice, milk, etc. Anyone who can contribute – should bring along what they have to offer. Chris will purchase Milk, Noreen will purchase Ice. Chris will be coordinating the food supplies we purchase from the Eagles Club. Tyler ’s parents have agreed to transport prepared food supplies from the Eagles Club to the airport.
