February 2013 Meeting

Hi Everyone –

Our February meeting will be at the Redmond library on Tuesday, Feb 19, 2013. More to come shortly about the program.

If you are interested, Jeff Skiles will be in the area as part of the EAA Grassroots tour, and the Thun Field chapter will host him on Monday, February 18 at Thun Field. This is, of course, not our official meeting but nonetheless will be interesting if you are able to attend.

Jeff was the co-pilot on the US Air flight that wound up in the Hudson a few years back. Guess he likes goose hunting…

Thun is quite a hike for a weeknight. Nonetheless it will be worth your time! Jim Piavis and I were in a meeting with him at OSH (Airventure to newbies) last July – and Jeff is highly interested in EAA Chapters. The topic is nominally “how to grow aviation”; however the reality is that Jeff is an entertaining guy who will talk about most anything related to flying.

If you are able to attend, please do two things right away:

  1. Visit www.eaa.org/Grassroots and RSVP. Space will be limited, so this is important!
  2. Reply on the Chapter 1440 Email List so that we can figure out car pooling – how many and who wants to. Please do not post a comment here on the chapter blog to confirm -- we will likely miss your response if you do.

See you there!

Jan 2013 Meeting

Hi Everyone –

A reminder that our January meeting will be on Tuesday, January 15 at the Redmond Library at 7 PM. As always, we’ll meet at Ooba Tooba for dinner at 6, if you wish to join us. See http://m.oobatooba.com/ for the (mobile friendly) link to Ooba’s.

This month will be a more formal business meeting in lieu of a program as such. But don’t let that scare you away! It means more time to chat about projects, and tell other true stories….
