EAA 800 Meeting Minutes
16 Feb 2008

The meeting was called to order at 10:25 AM in Dag's hangar by the President, Dennis Crawford.

The minutes from the January meeting were read and approved.

The Treasurer's report stated that we had $1732.94 in our account with about half of the dues being paid so far.

Dennis asked if anyone needed an EAA 800 name tag. They can still be ordered.

Sterling commented on some of the General Aviation news concerning Cessna/Columbia, Adams Aircraft, and Viper Aircraft. 2007 was a record year for the number of GA aircraft produced. Most were light jets and turbo props. Sterling circulated a list of the books that were obtained from Mark Howard (retired United Airline Captain). It was noted that there are some real treasures in this collection including one book signed by Eddie Rickenbacher. The plan is to make these books available to the Chapter members to check out.

Steve Lindemann explained the recent changes that he has made to the website. He has changed the menu scheme and also archived the minutes and photos from previous Chapter meetings. He has updated the directions to our meeting site and consolidated several pages.

Nancy Hurst reported that Kim Woynowskie was recently city employee of the month.

A Young Eagles day will be held on 22 March (the Saturday after our March meeting). Grand Junction will hold an airshow in September 2008. Some members thought it was the third weekend.

Dennis showed a DVD put together by Marv Reece of the construction and flight of his biplane called Daisy Mae.

Sterling called Linda Hartter to find out how Lenny was doing. While Lenny's blood work is doing better after the chemotherapy, Linda recently fell and broke her hip.

Jim Grady reported that Darryl Monroe is getting some help with his Fairchild 24 and has been doing better with his pain control medicine.

The meeting was adjourned at 11:20 AM and pizza was served for lunch.
