August Meeting - Gilbert International Airpark (SC45), Ron's Hangar - August 16th - 5:00 to 8:00pm

      (NOTICE: Our chapter did not meet in March, April, nor May due to restrictions placed on all South Carolinians by Governor McMaster's Executive Orders. Also, EAA provided COVID-19 guidance to all EAA chapters; click here to see that guidance. Fortunately, the governor's restrictions have recently been eased to a great extent. Most SC businesses and organizations can now open/operate as long as certain PRECAUTIONS are taken. Consequently, we will do our best to abide by those precautions. The Governor's Executive Orders are full of legal terms and hard to follow, but SCDHEC has published a simplified list of recommended precautions on their website. Click here to view them. Those guidlines are constantly changing, so please keep abreast of them.)

     Our next meeting is planned for Sunday, August 16th from 5:00pm to 8:00pm at Ron Angerman's hangar at Gilbert International Airpark (SC45). That's the cooler part of the day, so hopefully, it will be a more pleasant experience for us all. It should also allow those of you to attend who were hard pressed to come because of conflicts with church activities. With sunset now occurring after 8:30pm that time frame should allow you plenty of time to fly home before sunset. We plan to have an evening meal starting about 6:00pm EDT of pizza, vegetable salad(s), various packaged snacks, soft drinks, water, and possibly iced tea. We invite members and guests to bring other complementary "covered" dishes and desserts.

     As you know, COVID-19 is a very serious disease, so your attendance at this meeting is entirely voluntary. If you are fearful of catching the virus, then perhaps you should not come.
In fact, if you are sick in any way, we request that you please DO NOT COME. Further, if you have an underlying health condition(s), we suggest that you consider whether or not you really should come. With the recent increase of COVID-19 cases, some towns and municipalities, including Town of Lexington (but not yet Lexington County to our knowledge), are making it mandatory to wear masks in most businesses and public places, so we recommend WEARING MASKS at this event, or at the least, BRING a mask with you. Remember that masks are intended as much, if not moreso, for the protection of others as for yourself. We plan to have 5-gallon water jugs, soap, and paper towels outside to wash your hands, as well as hand sanitizer. If you must use Ron's restroom, we'll also have paper towels, hand soap, and sanitizer in there. Please avoid contact with items in Ron's restroom as much as possible.
     Thank you all for for your cooperation and understanding of our predicament during these challenging times. It's the only way we can reasonably and safely resume our chapter activities. State and local regulations are constantly changing. If all goes well, we'll continue having chapter meetings. If not, we may have to curtail them in the future.
