The meeting was held at Blake Field in Delta, Colorado at Smiley Aviation's Hangar. This was a joint meeting with the Montrose Chapter. Approximately 80 people were in attendance. The meeting was called to order at 10:20 AM.
An attendance roster was circulated with a request to update any new information.
Both Chapter Presidents emphasized the need to write your Legislators (Congressman and Senators)concerning the FAA proposal on User Fees. Both EAA and AOPA have suggested information for letters on their websites. In addition to individual letters, Chapter Presidents will write letters on behalf of their Chapters with signature pages of the members attached. Signature pages were set out for members to sign after the meeting. It was suggested that regular mail be used instead of email to provide more emphasis.
Several guests were introduced. One will become a member of EAA 800.......his name is Todd Skitter from Rifle. Todd has a Husky A-1A .
