    Below are updates from last month’s meeting in red.


    New topics might include;



    1.    Young Eagles event – Chapter 1247 at PCW originally had an event scheduled for Sept. 27. That has been postponed until October 5. They are looking for planes/pilots. I will send out a chapter wide email requesting support.

    2.    Young Eagles equipment – Our chapter has $3500 in Young Eagles credit that must be used before the end of the year. I am opting for 2 new laptops and a laser printer at a minimum. Another thought would be an electronic whiteboard that could be used like the departure boards at an airport so people can see how far down the line they are. Please ask for thoughts from the member. Otherwise I will just use my best judgment. The credits can be donated back to EAA national.

    3.    Elections, obviously.




    These are the meeting minutes from Steve Cechner.



    1. computer system

     - The EAA flight sim computer is operational again. The cause of it's problems has been determined to be the solid state drive which is under warranty and being returned to the manufacturer

     - The topic of the need for a second computer was discussed. The general consensus of the gathered members was that a second computer is generally not necessary as the current system is more than robust enough to handle mundane chapter tasks. If the board of directors and the chapter officers still feel that a second system is required for general chapter operations, then I will proceed with acquiring another computer as was approved last month.

     - For the record, I used the system last night for the entire duration of the meeting without incident and flew a simulated 172 for a while.


    The SSD was sent back to the manufacturer and was repaired. It is now installed in the system and it appears to be functioning just fine. Members are free to use the system again. The username for a chapter user is 582user and the password is chapter582.



    2. The topic of collecting ideas for Plane fun 2015


     - There were some ideas brought up. Karl mentioned that perhaps we could get a high school or middle school local robot competition club involved. Karl is checking into that possibility.  I brought up the thought of perhaps trying to get a car show to help fill space on the ramp or grass. I advised anyone with ideas to forward them to Brigitte David


    3. Door locks.

     - I informed the gathered members that the system has been installed (at least I thought it was) and that the software end of it has been a stumbling block but that we were close to resolution. Dave Horvath is monitoring that situation.


    I spoke to Dave yesterday, the 23rd of Sept. The software issues have been resolved and we are in I possession of the correct software. Programming is in progress. I believe I was incorrect about the physical installation of the hardware.  I do not believe that has been accomplished yet.





    1. Mini Chili fly-in event.

     - The topic of the October mini chili fly-in event was discussed. I advised the members that I spoke to EAA Risk Management about sponsoring the event and they said that our chapter can sponsor the event without requiring any other insurance documents from the Newbury's. As long as the chapter is the sole organizer we need only submit the usual insurance request form. I advised Dan Wiese, the event coordinator, to submit a budget which the chapter officers will review. Donations will be accepted at the event which have, in the past, covered the expenses. I believe it is in our interest to sponsor the event as Dan stated that he will do the event regardless and as Dan is known to be associated with our chapter for insurance sake we should be proactive and get the event covered.


    2. TPS High School EXPO, Sept. 13-14 Young Eagle event.

     - I brought up the need for volunteers to cover the registration desk at this event. The insurance form has already been requested.


    This event went very well. There is room for improvement on the process and we will be holding a debriefing meeting to identify how and what we can do to make it work better. For the record, there were NO, ZERO, NONE ,ZILCH, unsigned applications. There were 3 that were sufficiently questionable that I chose not submit them. So we flew 241 kids and will get credit for 238. All the paperwork has been submitted.



    These are my recollections.


    Steve Cechner

    Vice President
