    Hangar Use

    2 members, Paul Cooper and Mike Kimball, have asked to host a chapter restoration project of a Taylorcraft L-2 using the chapter hangar. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taylorcraft_L-2 They propose gathering corporate sponsors to support the project.

    • Board must approve the parameters, scope and calendar of the project.
    • The board raised the following questions
      • Who owns the aircraft [before, during and after project]?
      • What happens to the aircraft when the project is complete?
      • Explain how corporate sponsors will participate and benefit.
      • What are Paul and Mike's history of previous projects?
    • Paul and Mike should submit their plans to the board for review.
    • Paul and Mike might consider an organizational meeting to determine interest in the project.

    Plane Fun

    K. Leofler contacted National Guard regarding a fly-over.  They would like more information about the event including how money from the event is used.  A Director suggested inquire about a helicopter [visitors could view up close??]

    Other Business

    • It was suggested that for events which involve food and guests, consider asking guests to sign up for a “Contact” membership.  This may mitigate the need for Health Department inspections required for public food service since participants would be “members”. (B. David)  Note: a short review of Chapter Bylaws does not show “Contact” membership as a valid member type.  Members must also be members of EAA national
    • First Aid Kit should be kept up-to-date.  Dan Weise has previously already volunteered to restock the kit in a seperate personal meeting.  This is understood to be a one-time restocking.
    • We should consider posting a list of things the Chapter needs to do on the web site.  Members could then volunteer to complete items. (B. David)
