This month’s Chapter meeting is on Wednesday, 2/19/2020, at the BSAEC, the Chapter 25 hangar at Airlake Airport. The meeting begins with a BBQ Pot Luck at 6 pm, followed by a short business meeting at 7 pm and a speaker at 7:30 pm. This month Dave Retka will give us an update on the status of the Isle Airport. We will then take a short Drive to Jerry Schiroo’s Skunk Works shop where the Zenith CH 701 is being built.

Bring a dish to pass and a $5 contribution in the Donation Can at the end of the pot luck table to help cover the Chapter cost of the meat, beverages and staples. All aviation enthusiasts are welcome!
