Please read our COVID-19 precautions below

     Our chapter was forced to cancel a number of meetings in 2020, and again in 2021, due to conditions and restrictions forced upon us by the COVID-19 pandemic. There are even variants of Covid-19 up until now which could potentially affect even those of us who have been vaccinated.  Governor McMaster and SCDHEC have provided COVID-19 guidance to all South Carolinians regarding restrictions during the pandemic.  EAA has also provided guidance to EAA chapters. Click here to view that EAA guidance. Fortunately, the governor's orders have NOT been overly restrictive thus far. 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. SCDHEC has published a simplified list of recommended precautions on their website. Click here to view those SCDHEC guidelines. Those guidelines are constantly changing, so please keep abreast of them. As you know, COVID-19 is still with us and a very serious disease, so your attendance at this meeting is ENTIRELY VOLUNTARY. If you are fearful of catching the virus, then we'll understand if you decide not to come. If you are sick in any way, we request that you please DO NOT COME. If you have have had any variant of Covid-19 recently, or if you have any type of underlying health condition(s), we suggest that you consider whether or not you really should come. With the possible exception of the new Omicron variant, vulnerablity of those of us vaccinated has lessened substantially. So, if you are tired of being stuck at home, this is an excellent opportunity to get out and socialize with your like-minded aviation friends. Also, it's very important to practice SOCIAL DISTANCING and to WASH YOUR HANDS often. Those safety measures are intended as much, if not moreso, for the protection of others as for yourself. At least 6 feet is the recommended social distance between individuals. 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, so if there are further restrictions, we may have to curtail our chapter meetings.

     Happy Mother's Day month! Our next meeting is planned for Sunday, May 19th, 2024 at Ron Angerman's hangar at Gilbert International Airpark (SC45). Fly in or drive in. The address is 332 Downwind Leg Road, Gilbert, SC 29054. The alternate date for this meeting in case of bad weather is Sunday, May 26th, 2024.

     The general format for our meetings is as follows. Specific times may vary.

     We plan to serve lunch beginning around 1:00pm. The food theme for this month is "Pizza, salads & related" foods, so bring your favorite food or bring what you can. I'm sure that we can count on you again for a great variety of food at our luncheons this year. I can honestly say that nobody has better food than EAA Chapter 1467. I hope you will agree. Let me know what foods or items that you can bring to the meeting, and I'll post them below.

     The business/information gathering will begin at approximately 2:00pm EDT. Our Vice-President, Eddie Brennan, will be conducting the meeting today. We'll briefly review the minutes from our hugely successful April 28th, 2024 chapter meeting at Buckeye Farms, have a treasurer's report, and then discuss any further business items that may arise. Eddie will demonstrate his style of leadership at this meeting, and he may have a guest speaker. Eddie is a retired former NASA engineer, and he still travels a lot to different locations across the USA giving seminars for various federal and other agenices. I'll post more here if/when Eddie sends me more information.

     Check here periodically for further updates and details the week before the meeting for updates and our menu, which changes often as members volunteer food Items.
