Next Meeting - August 19th, 2018 - Lexington County Airport (6J0) - 1:00-3:00pm

     Our next chapter meeting will be held on Sunday, August 19th, 2018 in the conference room of the South Region Service Center at Lexington County Airport (6J0) beginning at 1:00pm EDT with lunch. Doors should be open around 12:30pm. There is a possibility that we may have to hold the meeting at Gilbert Airpark due to the air conditioning not functioning properly at 6J0, so check back here over the weekend.

     For lunch, Libby and Randy plan to bring a sliced honey-baked ham, two large containers of brown rice with mushrooms and onions, and 1 gallon of sugar-free, sweet tea. Please consider bringing a complementary dish (e.g. cooked and uncooked vegetables, baked beans, other dish), breads, desserts, ice or beverages (e.g. tea, soft drinks). If you don't like ham, please consider bringing another meat (e.g. chicken, beef, fish). Let Randy know what you can bring, and he will post it in the menu below.

     We'll have our normal business meeting after everyone finishes eating around 2:00pm or just before, which we plan to last 30 minutes or less, perhaps a bit longer depending on member reports and discussion. If you have an item for the agenda, please let Randy know.

     Also, Ron Mowery and several others just attended Airventure, which was held July 23-29. Ron and his wife, Cyndi, flew their Grumman Cheeta into the event, camped there during the week, and took some photos. Ron has agreed to give us a 15-20 minute presentation on their trip with photos immediately after the business meeting. We'll also ask others who went to give us reports on their experiences there.

     NOTE: We've now finished reviewing all 7 DVDs of the "Sporty's Instrument Rating Course" in the terminal building at 6J0. However, if you are interested in viewing and checking them out one at a time for a week at a time, we have a procedure for that, which we've announced in a previous chapter email.
