President's Message:

EAA

Happy (almost) spring, everyone. Here we are just a couple of days past the time change and a few days before the official first day of spring. And is it looking like spring ?  Nope. My airplane is still snowed into it's hangar and the grass runways aren't, well, grass. However, like many of you, I am eagerly anticipating the warmer weather and $100 hamburgers/breakfasts. The last couple of years have been tough on all of us with the lockdowns, venue closures, travel limitations, and the plethora of other impacts both great and small. Finally, things may be a bit more normal and we can start to have a regular summer. Um....maybe.

Our chapter is strong even with all of the challenges of the last two years. Membership is high (although Phil says a number of you haven't paid your dues yet this year) and we are planning a number of official events for the warmer weather. This includes at least two Young Eagle events (one in the spring and one in the fall) as well as the chapter flyin breakfast in September. I really hope to see you all at these events. But I am also hopeful that we can have some unofficial events as well. Besides the weekly Gathering of Turkeys...I mean Eagles... at the chapter hangar on Sunday mornings it would be great if we could have a few fly-outs for breakfast/lunch over the course of the summer. For those of us that don't have airplanes of our own, I am sure that other members will be happy to have passengers. I think the way to do this will be through the EAA245 Google group (if you aren't signed up and want to be, talk to Phil - membership@EAA245.org). Anyone will be able to suggest a fly-out somewhere and we can do the high level planning (date, time, location) there. Anyone who has an airplane, is planning on going, and has empty space, can offer empty seats. 

Personally, I am really looking forward to it. I'll even have one or two empty seats...
