A regular meeting EAA Chapter 1117 was held on Dec. 15th, 2018. Ron Bland presided. The clubs holiday season dinner was confirmed for Jan. 12th, 2019 at the Cattlemen’s restaurant. Cocktails at 6 PM, and dinner at 7 PM.
The possibility of an airport day was discussed. The airport people, and Aims Flight School, will be invited/encouraged to assist. The 3rd weekend in June is a potential date.
Jim Z. briefed the members on the progress of, and detailed planning for, the application process for the James Ray Flight Scholarship. Much discussion was on what methods the club would use to support and mentor the scholarship winner to help him/her attain the flight training within one year. This is a goal of the Oshkosh scholarship committee. Applications to EAA will have to be completed as soon as mid January. There is an EAA Webinar available on the James Ray Scholarship for anyone to review this potential 10,000.00 scholarship.
The club must appoint/recruit an individual to be the clubs representative in this important coordination.
The meeting was adjourned at 10:40.
