Today's meeting started around 6:45. Several people flew in for this meeting. Here is Dick Beamer and his Coyote: and another picture: Here is another member flying in: and then Mike King flies in. Ok, so he is walking here, but that is his T-Bird behind him! Dick was low on fuel so Jim Cooper goes to his hangar and retrieves his homebuilt fuel pump on a cart. Here he is showing how it works: Stu Reynolds offers to assist in the fuel delivery: "This thingy here pumps the fuel through this hose type gadget and the gas gets into the whatchamacallit somehow..."
The meeting comes to order: President Gary Tackett reviews his notes (or is he eating supper?) as Jerry Hodges records the meeting. Everyone listens intently... It was decided that it was too hot to hold the meeting inside so we adjourned to the beautiful outdoors: This is Brent Herman, Jerry Kitt, Mike King, Mike Ward, Steve Duncan, Jim Cooper (barely visible behind Steve), then Stu Reynolds. Here you see Mike Hopper, Jerry Hodges, Max Nelson, and then Tim Searle (front to back).
Today's meeting focused on planning a flight using charts and other piloting resources that are available. Dick Beamer was the presenter, sharing his tips and experience in planning a flight to Marshall, Michigan for the KIMO fly-in Sept 1st.
When Dick was finished, Mike Ward coordinated the responsibilities for the club's fly-in scheduled for Saturday August 12. He handed out slips of paper with duty assignments to the responsible parties. And NO, he does NOT accept bribes! Don't ask how I know! Since we are having the fly-in next month we will not have a meeting, but will get together again in September. Hope to see you at the fly-in!
