    Meeting was had during Friday HATH.

    Pres Ryan Weaver, VP Todd Shaw, Treas Rick Rowland, Sec Glen Meiring

    Directors: Joe Deaton; Joe Priebe; Bill Elvey

    Others: Dave Horvath; Tony Krncevic (Toledo Cars and Coffee director); TJ Swigart (briefly)


    • Todd Shaw and Glen Meiring raised the proposal to buy a "portable" paint booth.  After a small project to cover the vertical stabilizer on the Pietenpol they were asked if they wanted to do a set of wings for / with Dan Blair.  They say that would be too stinky to do indoors in the winter ... unless we had a paint booth.
      • The unit should be capable of being used indoors.  It has carbon filters that claim to remove the vapors.
      • It also supports venting outside if we want to.
      • TJ Swigart said he likes the idea and would donate
      • Joe Deaton says he would dontate.
      • A considerable discussion was had about benefits, features, etc. 
      • Members could borrow
      • Should there be a donation to use?
      • It was agreed we could figure out the requirements to borrow the thing after we get it.
      • The purchase up to about $2000 was approved unanimously.
      • Anyone wanting to donate can do so after it is purchased.
      • Todd will do some more research before buying
      • Glen has previously talked to Heath Seckinger who owns an auto body and paint accessories business.  Heath is researching.
    • Cars Planes & Coffee
      • Sunday July 11th, 9am 
      • Date chosen to following an event Tony has on The second Saturday of July which attracts people from all over.
      • Tony has a wide Facebook he can advertise to OR a smaller email group.  Which would we like?  Decided on the smaller, more predictable email group this time.  Tony estimates 50 to 75 cars (I think??).
      • Glen mentioned that it's cool to have the cars on the 'inside' of the row of hangars.  We could park on the ramps and on the north side of the taxiway.  Airplanes could park on the south side of the taxiway.
      • We'll sell airplane rides.  See Bill David to set up 
      • We'll sell breakfast and lunch.
      • Rain Date 7/17
    • When Pigs Fly event - TBD

    Joe Deaton had a list of suggestions for events throughout the year.

    • Pancake breakfasts.  
      • Maybe 2nd Sat of the months over the summer.  
      • Just pancakes and sausage
      • Deaton says he thinks Mike Whitescarver may be willing to lead the events.
    •  HATH - should we advertise on flying websites?
      • We discussed how big do we want HATH to be.  Should we only choose a few dates?
      • Decided to post the whole summer.  This should spread out the demand instead of a few larger events.
    • Poker run.  Should be members only.  Deaton will run it.
    • Photography day
    • Builders meetings
    • Spaghetti dinner.  Says we should sell tickets.  It's cheap and easy.  Typically a fall thing.
    • Holiday party
    • Flyouts.  Joe has a list of locations 
    • Kitchen trailer remodel.  Suggests we bring it in the hangar and do some repairs and upgrades.

    Glen raised the concern as to whether we can do all these events.  Who would run them?  Ryan mentioned, and the general consensus is, we can plan as many as possible and we'll do what we can.  Seems acceptable.

    Bill David (President) Presenting: 

    Bill would like to talk about the state of the chapter.  Where we are and things that have happened over the last year or so.


    • Bill met with Port Authority and signed agreement as mentioned in previous meetings. 
    • We have about $40k in back taxes due.
    • We now rent from the Port Authority.  Port would have assumed ownership in about 6 years anyway.  Rent was about $130/month.  Now will be $500/month to cover back taxes.
    • Lease says we are still technically responsible for taxes.  However Port is seeking tax exemption for whole airport and they think it will be legally easy to do.
    • Previous verbal discussion said that lease will "snap back" to current rental rates when back taxes were paid, about 10 years.  However, there is no snap back clause in agreement.


    Eric Barnum - he believes that we will need to send a letter once per year expressing our intent to renew the lease.  The letter will need sent once per year.

    George Roush - Do we have to have insurance?  We believe on contents only since Port now owns the hangar.  Read lease to be sure.

    Other airport tenants, Eric Barnum and TJ, agree this was a good deal with the Port.


    • Simulator bay has come a long way.  The bay has been mocked up nicely.
    • Mike Digby is looking into BATD certification which would allow logging some of the time on the simulator.

    Korbin Friend has been working on the system and discussed the state of the system: 

    • Consider updating video card and computer.  Existing set up is several years old.
    • Would like to use the system to attract members from other chapters to use as well as new members.


    Bill presented the printed QRH (Quick Reference Handbook) of the chapter operations.  The book was designed similar to an airline QRH using the same binding materials.  Looks cool.  Contains all of the need-to-know information to run the chapter.  Will be good for future administrations to pick up and run the chapter.

    Tool Program:

    The tool program is up and running again.  It should be used when borrowing tools.  See https://eaachapter582.wildapricot.org/tools


    Every week something is happening at the chapter.  First Thursday, IMC club; Second Thursday, VMC club; Third Thursday, Chapter meeting; Fourth Thursday, Youth night.

    Money Received:

    Recently, we have received ~5,500, combined, from TBLSACI (hangar use);  Doug Gibbs (hangar use); Joe Deaton (when pigs fly)


    Seeking nominations for officer positions.  Bill David, Glen Meiring and Rick Rowland plan to run again.  John Kurfess (VP) is stepping aside.

    Initiatives of things we would like to do going forward: 

    Ride Board 

    • Publish openings for rides.  That is, if you're flying somewhere and you have an opening, post it for someone else to come along if they like.
    • If you need a safety pilot for IFR 

    Put up a sign: We would like to put a sign along the road to advertise our presence.

    Ambassador Program: Bill would like to visit other chapters to coordinate with.  He's offering the use of his airplane to go visit other area chapters.

     ---- Presentations by other Members ----

    Casey Putsch, Genius Garage

    Casey would like to team up with the 582nd to develop youth programs.  Not sure quite what that is yet but planning to work with Bill David to come up with something.

    Casey announced that Genius Garage has some big things happening.  He can't talk publicly yet.  Casey has been regularly posting to YouTube, https://www.youtube.com/user/putsch1.  This has gotten the attention of some folks and some good things are happening.

    Rick Lederman, Co-Director of Weak Signals Expo, "The Toledo Show Expo"

    We will need people to be at the booth during the expo

    Ryan Weaver, Bill David - TBLSACI Dissolving
