Next Meeting - September 15th, 2019 - Gilbert International Airpark (SC45) - 1:00-4:00pm

      Our next meeting will be held on Sunday, September 15th, 2019 at Ron Angerman's hangar at Gilbert International Airpark (SC45) located at 332 Downwind Leg Road. Ron's hangar is the largest hangar at the airpark and is located about midfield. You may fly in or drive in, but please be careful. If you fly in, please park on the south (shaded) side of the runway just west of Ron's hangar. If you drive, please be sure to park off the road so that airpark residents can pass by.

We've decided on chicken tenders (from Publix) as the main course for our luncheon. We're requesting that you bring complimentary items to go with it, such as potato salad, other salads, baked beans, fries, vegetables, desserts (no banana pudding this time), tea and other beverages. If you can bring something, please let me know ASAP, so that we can plan the meal properly, and I'll post it below.

     Then, we'll hold our business meeting around 2:00pm in which we'll discuss, and hopefully approve, the August 18th meeting minutes, have a financial report, and have any member reports. Larry Philbin will report on a possible EAA VMC and/or IMC club for our chapter. If you have anything you'd  like to report or comment on, please let me know, and I'll add it to the agenda. We'll also plan our October meeting, which will likely be held at Dave and Tammy Gardner's Buckeye Farms near Williston, SC. We'll also reiterate plans for our chapter fall fly-in coming up on Saturday, November 2nd with an alternate "bad weather" date of November 9th.

     After the luncheon and business meeting. Dave Gardner plans to give us a presentation, complete with photos, on his roughly 3000-mile cross country trip from Washington state to his home near Willison, then to 6J0 to deliver Jim Streeter's Ercoupe to him. He and Jim also plan to travel to the east coast so that Dave can say he made a "coast to coast" flight a second time. Dave came across some treacherous country, so it should be interesting. Thankfully, he made it home safely. Jim Matthews plans to bring his bright projector and big screen so that you can see the photos more clearly.

NOTE: We've now finished reviewing all 7 DVDs of the "Sporty's Instrument Rating Course" in the terminal building at 6J0. If you wish, you may check out the "backup copies" of the course, which are in the individual plastic cases. The originals are in a plastic magazine in the lockbox too. but we ask that you not remove those from the terminal building. You may view them in the terminal building as often as you like. However, that's our only copy, so if one goes missing or is damaged, we no longer have a viable course.  For a complete description of the course, click here.
