     Our July, 2018 chapter meeting was again held at the Lexington County South Region Substation located near the entrance to Lexington County Airport (6J0). Our meeting started with an Italian themed lunch about 1:00pm. Members brought spaghetti, meatballs, lasagne, salads, and several delicious desserts and beverages. Thanks to the cooks and those of you who brought food items and also for your donations!

     Randy gaveled the meeting to order at 1:55pm. He first introduced and welcomed several guests, including several wives and two first time guests: Jason Christofi, who owns a Cessna 150, along with his 2-year old daughter, and Ray Kyzer, who is interested in flying ultralights. He also recognized TTF members who had not been to a recent meeting: Don Harper, our EAA technical assistant and Barnwell County councilman and Dave Hardly, also president of the Gilbert International AIrpark Association.

     In other business, the minutes from our June 24th meeting were approved. Leon Strock gave the financial report which again indicates that our treasury is in great shape. He made two disbursements, both to Randy for: (1) reimbursement for the "Sporty's Instrument Rating Course" ($208.39) and (2) services rendered for the TTF website for 2018 ($100). We decided our August meeting will be held on August 19th at 6J0. Randy reiterated that our Fall Fly-in is scheduled for Saturday, November 3rd (with a rain date of November 10th) at Gilbert International Airpark (SC45) from 9:00am until 4:00pm with lunch served on a donation basis. He also mentioned that our October meeting will be held at Dave and Tammy Gardner's "Buckeye Farms", which has a 2600' airstrip, located near Williston, SC. Randy then asked members for their comments and suggestions regarding our chapter. He called on each member (and guest) in robin robin fashion. Everyone seemed well pleased with the direction of our chapter. We had lots of fun joking and laughing today. It was great, wholesome fun. The meeting was adjourned about 2:45pm.
