Charlie reported that the Norridgewock EAA chapter would be moving operations to Pittsfield, and they will be having their annual Fly In there on July 21, 2012.
There was some discussion on a date for a Chapter 87 Young Eagles event. Wiscasset is one of the sites considered, and Tom Muller suggested we hold the event in conjunction with the Texas Flying Legends performance Aug 11, 12. The Oct Wiscasset open house dates were also of interest. Steve Williams will try to get an opinion from the Wiscasset show organizers on a concurrent Young Eagles program.
The July meeting will be held at Tom Muller’s hangar on July 10 at 1830 hours, and will be a meeting/BBQ.
On August 18, Mark Hayden will host his annual Fly In/Drive In at Emmett Field - 86 Old Lewiston Rd in Monmouth.
