EAA Chapter 1218
2014-December Meeting Minutes PDF Print E-mail
Written by Phylis White   
January 05, 2015

December 13, 2014

Fifty nine members and guests participated in the traditional Christmas meal. The November chapter video magazine was shown. The segments were of interest and enjoyed by all in attendance.
President White called the meeting to order. The cooks were thanked for the excellent meal.
A motion to approve the minutes as published was made by Henny Christensen, second by Lindall Baker and approved by members.
David Johnson gave the financial report; motion to approve by Henny Christensen, second by Tom Young and approved by members. 2015 dues are now being collected. President White expressed thanks once again for the chapter’s $500 travel expense donation toward the EAA Leadership Academy attended by Tom and Phyllis White. Several topics covered that weekend will be presented to the chapter in the coming months. We expect The One Week Wonder to visit the chapter sometime during 2015.
A thank you “for letting us provide food during your open house” note from the American Legion Post was read.
Twelve Boy Scouts received their aviation merit badge Saturday, December 6 during the merit badge university. Chapter members instructing were Lindall Baker, Joyce Breesawitz, David & Lisa Johnson, John Good, Jim Vokac and Tom & Phyllis White.
Winner of the gun raffle was Johnnie White, formerly of Jonesboro and owner of Stoney Point Farm, Willow Springs (formerly owned by Bill and Mary Marx). He was one of the first to purchase tickets. Just to be clear, he is not related to any chapter 1218 members. Ron White announced he was donating the gun therefore all ticket sales went to the Jerry L. Smith Aviation Scholarship Fund. Phyllis White said if in the future we want to sell raffle tickets at any area Wal-Mart, we must get our name in months in advance. We were not able to get in Wal-Mart but she was able to sell tickets during the American Legion Veteran’s Day luncheon. Also Ron Weldon took tickets at the last meeting and sold several out of town.
The well crafted airplane bookshelves built by Ron White and John Good were not raffled during the open house 2014. It has been decided to save them for open house 2015.
Annual chapter national award certificates and pins were presented to Chapter President Tom White, Vice President Lindall Baker, Secretary Phyllis White, Treasurer David Johnson, Young Eagle Coordinator Lisa Johnson, Flight Advisor Ron Hook and Technical Counselor Berlin Batesel.
A motion was made by Lisa Johnson, second by Ron Hook to have chili, soup and crock pot dishes at noon for our next meeting January 10, 2015.
A motion to adjourn was made by Mike Noonan, second by Benny Butler and approved by members

2014-October Meeting Minutes PDF Print E-mail
Written by Phylis White   
December 06, 2014

October 25, 2014 meeting postponed from October 11. 29 members and one guest dined at noon before President Tom White called the annual meeting to order.
Photos from the recent EAA Leadership Academy attended by Tom and Phyllis White were shown including a photo of the Home Builders Hall of Fame plaque with Bill Ghan’s name on it. The October video magazine was shown including the STOL competition at Air Venture featuring Bobby Breeden. Ron Weldon said he had visited with Breeden at a Gaston’s gathering. The cooks were thanked for lunch. Member Chuck Hiett is recovering from an auto accident the first of the month.
A motion to approve the minutes as published was made by Henny Christensen, second by Lindall Baker and approved by members present. Secretary Phyllis White gave the financial report in the absence of Treasurer David Johnson. A motion to approve as reported was made by Henny Christensen, second by Don Nevels and approved. We have sold enough rifle raffle tickets to pay for it but need to sell more for a profit for the scholarship. President White asked for volunteers to sell tickets in front of a Wal-Mart or local grocer. Bill Ghan volunteered to sell at Mountain Grove Wal-Mart on November 8th. There were no other volunteers.
The annual meeting is the election of officers. President White read the slate of officers and asked for nominations from the floor. There were none. Ed Walker made a motion to elect the slate as read by acclimation, second by Bob Coats and approved by members. Henny Christensen said we need to have a group photo of the officers at the next meeting.
Some of the information gleaned from the leadership academy was covered. The head of public relations, Dick Knapinski spoke regarding media coverage of an incident. He cautioned chapters if there is an incident, to not say a lot. The news media wants about a 9-12 second clip and he suggests we say “our hearts and prayers go the families involved for the loss and we will leave it up to the authorities to determine what happened”. We will have his complete presentation at a future meeting. We are on the list for the One Week Wonder (Zenith 750) which will be touring this coming year. They plan to go to Mexico, MO of course and hopefully w will be their next stop. Of the chapters represented, 1218 is doing a lot of things right. More info from the academy will be shared at future meetings.
The FAA ruling 90-116 regarding the second pilot in an experimental during the first ten hours was discussed. Ron Hook said that also allows for instruction.
Secretary White read an e-mail from Ben Rushing, Louisiana that purchased the Hiperbipe from the chapter. He and his wife are planning to be in the area next weekend and hope to see some members at the airport.
Due to the late October meeting, members voted to skip a November meeting; motion by Mike Noonan, second by Ed Walker and approved by members. The next meeting will be the holiday meal, December 13th, 2PM. Secretary White will contact members with a set menu for items to bring.
Rory Lozano said he had been dealing with difficult people where he works. The contrast between them and coming to chapter meetings where everyone is pleasant and wanting to accomplish something working together, makes him appreciate us.
A motion to adjourn was made by Ed Walker, second by John Smith and approved by members.

EAA South Central Ozarks Chapter 1218 Scholarship Program

Purpose

  1. To promote general aviation in south central Missouri by encouraging interested individuals to pursue obtaining their primary pilot license.
  2. To increase local general aviation economic activity.
  3. To promote use and support of local airport facilities, services and personnel.
  4. To increase local awareness of EAA Chapter 1218, and local aviation activities, by publicizing individual sponsorships, business sponsorships, scholarship awards, first solo flights, and successful completions of flight training in local media, chapter meeting minutes, and on the chapter website.
  5. Grow the membership of EAA Chapter 1218 by helping to create more general aviation pilots, in this area, which will hopefully become the future of our organization.

Method

Award a $2,500 scholarship to any individual, that resides within the 9 county geographic area covered by EAA South Central Ozarks Chapter 1218, to be used for primary flight training with the goal of obtaining a Private Pilot, Sport Pilot, or Recreational Pilot License. The scholarships will be awarded without regard to age, sex, or financial status.  Applicants will become eligible by first taking a young eagle flight, an eagle flight, or demonstrating previous flight experience, then completing and submitting an application to EAA South Central Ozarks Chapter 1218.  When an applicant is approved to receive a scholarship, the applicant will be required to join both the national Experimental Aircraft Association and the EAA South Central Ozarks Chapter 1218.  The applicant will pay for primary flight instruction (plane rental, fuel, instructor fees) at any flight school, or with any Certified Flight Instructor, of the applicant’s choice, and then submit proof of payment to EAA South Central Ozarks Chapter 1218 for reimbursement.  The EAA South Central Ozarks Chapter 1218 Scholarship Program will be managed by the EAA Chapter 1218 executive committee and will be limited only by the number of applicants approved or by the funds available.

Funding

The EAA South Central Ozarks Chapter 1218 Scholarship Program was initially funded by the generous donations of individuals to the Jerry Smith Scholarship Fund.  These existing funds and any future funds raised for the sole purpose of supporting the chapter 1218 scholarship will be used to fund this scholarship program.  This will assure all supporters and sponsors of the scholarship program that their contributions will only be used for the scholarship program and will not be used for any other chapter 1218 activities or obligations.  Future funding will be secured by:  1. Donation jar clearly marked scholarship fund at all meetings and EAA events for individual or anonymous contributions.  2. Fund raising activities that are organized and conducted by EAA members for the sole purpose of raising money for the scholarship fund such as craft sales, garage sales, raffles, bake sales, etc.  3. Individual Sponsorships:  Diamond level $500, Gold level $250, Silver $100, Bronze $50.  Business Sponsorships:  Diamond level $1,000, Gold level $500, Silver $250, Bronze $100.  Sponsorships would be publicized with pictures in local media, distributed in chapter meeting minutes and on the chapter website.
