As in the past, there will not be a regular Friday night meeting in August. Instead, we will have our 2018 Post Oshkosh Bash on Saturday, August 11th. The Chapter will provide bratwurst, hot dogs and drinks. Each member is requested to bring a side or dessert to feed 12. Gather at 6:00 pm and we will eat at 7:00 pm. After dinner we will have members share their pictures and stories from AirVenture. To make it easy, bring your photos on a flash drive or CD, etc. This year we will also have some of our youth sharing stories of Summer Camp and Air Academy. This is a family gathering and the site of the festivities of course is the Chapter hangar. Any questions contact Brian at email@example.com. Come join us.
At 3:00 pm, preceding the Post Oshkosh Bash, Brian will do a PowerPoint “Slack” presentation to help us get the most out of our chapters shared collaborative software program. “Slack” is software for your PC, smart phone and tablet that allows everyone that participates to share information, exchanges ideas and communicate with one another.
replaces our regular business meeting
EAA 690 is a Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association, located at Briscoe Field (LZU) in Lawrenceville, Georgia. A diverse chapter with over 250 members, we offer a wide range of aviation-related activities on a regular basis. While the Pancake Breakfast and our monthly meetings are the norm, we also are heavily involved in youth education through EAA’s Young Eagles program and our Aviation Explorer group, regularly conduct fly-ins, and host historical aircraft such as EAA’s B-17 “Aluminum Overcast” and the Ford Tri-Motor.
Our technical counselors are some of the best in the business, and willingly donate their time to homebuilders, as they progress through the various phases of constructing an aircraft. We have pilots with a wide variety of experience, from former airline and military pilots to general aviation pilots with a private certificate. “Hangar flying” is a fun part of the mix, and our facility is often used for aircraft annual inspections, meetings, special events, and training. We also have an extensive array of aviation tools for loan to members, and a library full of aviation information.
Come join us on the first Saturday of every month at the hangar to enjoy a $7 Pancake Breakfast, and to learn more about EAA 690.
