EAA Chapter 75 Update - February 3, 2020:
As of February 3, 2021, EAA Chapter 75 - Quad Cities President Jim Skadal and the EAA Chapter 75 Board of Directors have reopened more functions for the chapter. The functions that have reopened are: the 1st Saturday Coffee & Donuts, The Monthly Meetings at the Butterworth Center & Deere-Wiman House in Moline, IL, the 1500 Club at Carver Aero's conference room in Davenport, IA and the EAA - Young Eagles program. These programs join the already open EAA IMC Club Meetings at the Lindquist Ford facility in Bettendorf, IA. In this rapidly changing environment, the safety of our members are our utmost importance as we are following all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, EAA Headquarters, state/city/county/food-service, EAA Chapter 75, hosting facility, protocols and guidelines at this time.
General EAA Chapter 75 COVID-19 Guidelines:
• Stay home if you’re sick.
• Stay at least 6 feet from others (standing & sitting).
• A face mask is strongly encouraged when not eating, and particularly when talking to one another as this helps reduce the spread of COVID-19.
• Wash your hands often.
• No self-serve of food or drinks. A server will provide you with your needs.
Deere-Wiman Carriage House COVID-19 Guidelines & Procedures:
Following are the guidelines we have for meetings, including the limitations to allow for social distancing:
The maximum number of people we are able to accommodate in the Deere-Wiman Carriage House is 33 people with a panel style setup (this is rows of chairs with a panel table up front). If you would like tables, the classroom setup is able to accommodate 26 people. The setups are all socially distanced.
•We will have a staff member on site for the Carriage House. A member of your group will need to check in at the office in the Deere-Wiman House (off the south porch entrance - there will be a sign). The staff member will then unlock the door to the Carriage House and provide a clipboard with sheets for all attending to sign-in (this will be used if we have a need for contact tracing).
•We ask that everyone wear face coverings when moving through buildings. This includes when you arrive, in the building and leave.
•We ask that everyone wash hands frequently or use hand sanitizer.
•We ask that everyone self-screen and not come on site if experiencing COVID symptoms.
•No self-serve of food or drinks. A server will provide you with your needs. (NEW)
•A member of our staff will call Jim two weeks prior to each reservation to confirm.
