July 11, 2008 - We had our meeting at the Centre Air Park this month.  There was a good turn out with members, spouses, kids, and pets in attendance and all enjoyed hot dogs, chips, mac & cheese, brownies, refreshments, etc.  Flights were taken in aircraft attending including J-3, Super Cruiser, Champ, Chief, Cessna 140, Kolb.  Several members camped at the airport and resumed flying in the morning.  We were treated to pancakes and bacon for breakfast (thanks Lynn).  Thanks to Jack Garbrick for hosting us at his airport, and to Dave Dix, Ron Bowman, Bob Grove, and all of the others that I probably missed for making this a successful event.

Jan 9 - Don Bierly hosted the chapter meeting on January 6 at his workshop. This was our yearly winter "hands on" meeting where we all got to see and try some new things.

And Jack Erickson gave a presentation on opposed aircraft engines. Jack has a web site that we will be including in our links that has lots of interesting information. us at University Park Airport.

Oct 20 - Well, you're looking at the most recent bit of news. The chapter now has a website. Hopefully we can all use this resource to help communicate chapter events, buisness, and fun stuff. Take a look around the site if you haven't done so already. There is a splash of content on most of the pages to give you an idea of what we might include. We need input from you to fill in more. If you have info on your projects, news, chapter history, events of interest for the calendar, or other links to include, please send them to Malcolm Morrison morrisons5@adelphia.net. Enjoy the site!
