July Meeting, Ron's Hangar (SC45), 7/19/20, 5-8pm


Dave Hardy & Larry Philbin grill hamburgers & hotdogs in a rainstorm while Ron Angerman looks on

      Our July, 2020 meeting was held at Ron Angerman's great hangar at SC45 on Sunday, July 19th, 2020 from 5:00 to 8:00pm EDT. This was our first meeting since the COVID-19 pandemic ravaged our country and the rest of the world. Approximately 30 members and guests attended, which was very good considering the circumstances. Only 3 planes flew in, primarily due to rapidly building weather. In fact, one pilot had to turn around, fly back home, and then drive in. We had a meal of hamburgers, hotdogs, baked beans, macaroni & cheese, various snacks and several delicious desserts. Ron set up the grills under a tent in front of his hangar. Thank you, Ron! It's a good thing too because just after the grilling began, a "gully washer" summer downpour dumped much rain on us. We had planned to set up some tables outside, but it's a good thing we didn't because they would have been drenched, and it would have been impossible to eat out there. As it was, the downpour did not dampen our spirits, and everyone had a great time inside. Most attendees wore masks and practiced social distancing, but I hope we can do even better next time. Although masks are uncomfortable and cumbersome, they are necessary during these COVID times. Remember, this is a serious disease, and we certainly don't want anyone to get the disease.

     After the meal, Randy held a brief business meeting. He started the meeting with a slide presentation on old and new business. He thanked Ron Angerman for his hospitality in allowing us to use his great hangar, He also thanked the food providers, the cooks, and every one who braved these COVID-19 times to come today. In fhe absence of treasurer, Libby Berry, Randy gave a financial report which indicated that our chapter finances are still very healthy. He pointed out that a virtual online Airventure event is being  held from Tuesday, July 25, through Saturday, July 25th. He also provided some helpful computer related tips. In other new business, Dave Gardner indicated that the chapter can meet at his Buckeye Farms in October. Larry Philbin also provided at tip on free computer software.

    The entire Hibpschman family joined our chapter at this meeting, They are Al, Jeanette, and their children, Justin, Elsie, and Kyle. They are already national EAA members and definitely an aviation oriented family. We are happy to have them as members of our chapter. Welcome to our chapter, Hibpschman family!
