We return to our regular 4th Tuesday meeting schedule this month. We'll be meeting back in our usual location in the airport office, with burgers on the grill starting around 6 and business meeting at 7.

Our speakers will be members Robert Skalany, David Morrow, and John Kinyon. They will talk about their long-running "annual inspection", including:

·  Brief history of the airplane and project*

·  Problems found and decisions made about corrections

·  Upgrades to avionics, engine, and airframe

·  Lessons learned

*For details please see pages 1, 4, and 5 of the April 2007 Winds Aloft and John's article on pages 5 and 6 of the February 2015 Winds Aloft (related photos and inspirational video).

 After the talk we'll go to hangar P9 to see the airplane, fixtures, and tools.

On our monthly fly-out in November to Watertown, WI, we discovered the Perkins restaurant adjacent to the airport is closed. There is a nice restaurant called 'The Spot' which is about 1 mile north on RT 26. In nice weather a nice walk from the airport, or use the crew car if available.

From Ole 6/20/2017......

I flew to Milwaukee’s Timmerman Airport today with George Haupt and George Roby.

The FBO there now charges a $ 10 parking fee, - they call it Ramp Fee – this is new, never did that before.  The fee is waived if you buy at least 10 gallons of fuel.  Present price is 4.28 per gallon.
