EAA 800 Meeting Minutes
20 Sep 2008

The meeting was called to order at 10:10 AM by the President, Dennis Crawford.

The minutes from the August meeting were read and approved.

The Treasurer reported that we have $1440 in our account plus about $50 in cash.

Dennis introduced Mel Thorsen as a guest. Mel is a private pilot and is the owner of Lenny Hartter’s Bearhawk.

Sterling reported on several Chapter members: Darryl Monroe is doing better and they are planning to do some traveling to the Midwest soon. Marge Guziak recently broke her hip, but is now getting around with a walker. Don Hamilton is expected back from Missouri soon, but is not doing well. Beverley Kibler has been ill and the Chapter has sent her a get well card.

After discussion and a vote it was decided to pay Dag for two years of costs for use of the EAA 800 website. Steve Lindemann will get with Jay Scheevel to see if we can host our website on Jay’s computer.

An EAA 800 banner for the booth is needed for the upcoming airshow. A vote of the members present approved the purchase of two banners that read “EAA 800” with the EAA national logo in dark blue on a white background. Sterling will arrange to have these banners made this week.

There was a lot of discussion about the upcoming Grand Junction Airshow. However, Kim Woynowskie was not present to answer questions. Sterling will gather the information this week and send out emails to the members with additional Airshow information. Volunteers are needed to help set up on Friday and to man the booth Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

On October 5th, the Montrose Chapter will have their monthly meeting at Crawford. EAA 800 members are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Dennis handed out copies of the Rvator to interested members.

Comments on the FAA’s proposed changes to the 51% Rule were discussed and it was noted that the deadline for comments to the FAA is the end of September. The EAA website has a suggested letter to send along with the details of the FAA proposal.

Nominations and election of new Chapter Officers is coming up in December at the Christmas luncheon. Please consider running for one of the Chapter officer positions.

The October 18th meeting will be held in Dag’s hangar.

The meeting was adjourned at 11:00 AM.
