A regular meeting of Chapter 1117 was held on 19 Sep. at 09:30. Having a fall Young Eagles day was the main topic of the day. Time was allowed for discussion, and a briefing by Tom Boos about the Frontier Academy High School Training Days. A motion was put before the club to have a limited Young Eagles event on Friday, Oct. 16th , and Sat. Oct. 17th for the purpose of supporting the Frontier Academy High School Training Days. The start time for the flying will be 08:00 and go until aprox. 4 pm. If we have plenty of airplanes , then the Saturday will only be a day to finish the flying, and it then will not be an all day affair. As the club has limited lift capability, and because club 515 in Ft. Collins/Loveland is having a Young Eagles day on Oct 3rd it was decided not to throw it open to the entire community.
Tom estimated that between 15 and 20 students would be desiring a flight. (limited to 20 maximum). The motion to schedule this 2 day activity in October was seconded and adopted with a majority in favor. A rain date would be the Oct. 23rd and or the 24th.
Our traditional Christmas dinner was discussed, and many suggestions as to where we could have it were aired. We had it at the Cattleman's last year in early January. It will have to be settled at the next meeting.
Lee gave us a treasurers report.
The club discussed our sponsoring of a scholarship for a young person, or two, to attend Air Camp workshops at Oshkosh next year. We are in the learning process about how to make this happen. More to come late on this.
The meeting was adjourned at 10:30.
Truman Sager, Secy.
