From John Morgan, EAA 690 President
At the Thursday evening Board of Directors Meeting, in light of the ongoing Coronavirus epidemic, and with the concern and precaution for our membership, it was decided to immediately suspend all EAA Chapter 690 activities and events scheduled to take place through the end of March.This includes Young Eagle flights, the Youth Aviation Build Program, VMC/IMC meeting scheduled for next Thursdayand the Ground School given by Brian Michael. (Note: Brian may elect to continue the ground school classes and will contact his students directly.)
The BOD will monitor the Gwinnett County Board of Education for guidance as this epidemic progresses. Any updates will be via Chapter NOTAMs. Any questions can be addressed to either John Morgan(email@example.com)or Louis Pucci(firstname.lastname@example.org).
EAA 690 is a Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association, located at Briscoe Field (LZU) in Lawrenceville, Georgia. A diverse chapter with over 250 members, awarded EAA's top level Gold Chapter status, we offer a wide range of aviation-related activities on a regular basis. While the Pancake Breakfast and our monthly meetings are the norm, we also are heavily involved in youth education through EAA’s Young Eagles program and our youth programs, regularly conduct fly-ins, and host historical aircraft such as EAA’s B-17 “Aluminum Overcast” and the Ford Tri-Motor
EAA 690 members are on SLACK!
Are you using Slack? Have you heard of Slack, but have no idea what it is? Or how to use it? If so, stick around after any of our pancake breakfast presentations, and Brian Michael will go over the in-and-outs of Slack. Anyone not participating in Slack, is welcome to join by contacting any participating member and having them send an invitation. There are many channels of which you may choose any number of interest or all of them. LEARN MORE
...to all the pilots, ground crew, and registration volunteers for our past Young Eagle rally. If you haven't yet gotten involved, signup at https://youngeaglesday.org/?yesignup. No prior experience necessary.
If working with youth is your interest, the Youth Aviation Build program needs additional mentors to support and grow the program. The Saturday program runs from 9 AM until 1 PM and could be the most rewarding thing you have ever done in aviation. You will never know until you try it
