January 2018 Meeting


Hello and Happy New Year to all Chapter 40 members!

Our first meeting of the year will be on January 20th (this Saturday) At 9:30 am at the old Rocky’s restaurant, now beautifully restored by the Civil Air Patrol.

The flu is at a 10-year high, and 40 people have died already in the United States. Not to be gruesome, but if you feel sick or have been sick please do not attend our meeting.

Ed Smither was to be speaker at our meeting in January, discussing Whiteman Tower operations. Ed has been inundated with back problems and I hope we can all put him in our prayers and wish him our best.

Don’t forget to bring your checkbook; it’s time to pay your chapter dues. It’s only $30 (cheap!) to be a part of the great Chapter 40.

The 2018 dates for Young Eagles will continue to be the Fourth Saturday, with the next event on January 27th at 10 am. At the meeting we will be showing an activity to keep the Young Eagles occupied before their flights. Dave Kolstad and I have been working on this over the holiday break. Members can stay after the meeting to give it a test bend? Come and see what we’re making.

Donuts, Donuts, Donuts. Let’s start off the year with a nice round of donuts! Thanks to all the guys that bring the donuts. Flying is a rush (and so is a good sugar high).

Hope to see everyone at the next meeting, and I hope Chapter 40 continues to be prosperous in the new year.

Blue Skies, Charlie
