2013 Chapter Programs and Speakers https://www.60.eaachapter.org/apps/photos/ 2013 Chapter Programs and Speakers The Whole Enchilada After the pod is lowered from the belly of the airplane, it rolls out from under it and gets tipped on its side. Then it's just a simple matter of rotating the motorcycle out and in a couple of minutes, voila!... you have transportation from the airport for as long as you stay. Cool, huh?! https://www.60.eaachapter.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=173701381 173701381 Pat Introduces Dave Pat and Dave have known each other for quite a while, so we asked her to introduce him as our guest speaker for the evening. We were hoping for some impromptu anecdotes about his "misdeeds" of the past, but she kept pretty close to the script in her usual professional way. ;-) https://www.60.eaachapter.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=174578297 174578297 Dave Explains the Concept As the fascinating story of the evolution of his company unfolded, we marveled at his single minded dedication to the goal, in spite of numerous hurdles that were thrown in front of him along the way. https://www.60.eaachapter.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=174578298 174578298 Good Turnout for a Good Program! There were lots of familiar faces at our January chapter meeting and a few not so familiar ones. We welcomed new member Dick Wixom to start off 2013 on a positive note! https://www.60.eaachapter.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=174578299 174578299 Phil and Gene Visit Before the Program Long time Chapter 60 members Phil Owens and Gene Calkins share "war stories" and probably talk politics prior to the meeting getting under way. https://www.60.eaachapter.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=174578300 174578300 Kurt Receives Tech Counselor Pin Although it was a bit late, President Bob had a nice certificate of appreciation and a pin recognizing Kurt's status as one of our chapter's EAA Technical Counselors for 2012. Kurt's A&P and AI knowledge helped Jim Beckman restore his 1941 Aeronca Chief over the past several years. Well done, gentlemen! https://www.60.eaachapter.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=174578301 174578301 Ken Adds Parting Comments Prior to adjourning the meeting, Secretary Ken has a few "housekeeping" items to announce. This time is was that 2013 dues are due, and that if members mail in their 2013 dues checks before January 31st, they get a $5 discount! https://www.60.eaachapter.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=174579549 174579549 Doug Tomas - March Doug introduces us to his great uncle in this photo taken at the beginning of his talk. https://www.60.eaachapter.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=178467880 178467880 Doug Tomas - March Doug did extensive research to uncover the facts about his great uncle's fatal crash in his B-24 Liberator over Italy in WWII. He kept the members and guests enthralled with the results of his investigation. A model of the B-24, complete with authentic paint scheme was an excellent visual aid during his talk! https://www.60.eaachapter.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=178467879 178467879 Doug Tomas - March Afterward, Bob presented Doug with our traditional Speaker's Guild certificate as our way of saying "Thank You!" as Ed looks on. https://www.60.eaachapter.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=178467881 178467881 Doug Tomas - March Afterward, Stan gets a close-up look at some of the supporting material that Doug brought with him for the members to see. https://www.60.eaachapter.org/apps/photos/photo?photoID=178467882 178467882
