Meeting Minutes July 18, 2020
EAA Chapter 1167
B-17, Tri-Motor, or B-25 tour stop still indeterminate.
Discussed the YE rally request from Jeff at Union County Airport 35A. Under the current circumstances we don’t believe a YE rally is possible.
We're not sure if the Air Academy is going to happen next year but if they do we have a spot for a candidate we’d like to send.
Note: Air Academy is coming up on 40 years of operation
The instructors will need an influx of new talent in the coming year(s)
We decided that we should make the go/no go decision for the Fall Fly-in during the Sept. meeting.
Next meeting we'll do a coffee / doughnuts pre-meeting on the ramp. Start at 0930. Doughnuts and breakfast sandwiches planned.

The Vagabond Larry owns and the feature that had been planned for the model with Sentimental Journey.
More COVID discussion about virus transmission
Noted that masks build moisture and attract mold within 15 minutes so reusing a mask beyond two days could cause other respiratory issues.
The cloth masks actually make transmission worse because they stops the water molecule and the viron is ejected from the water molecule
The short runways and distances required for take-off out of short fields. Know your airplane and know yourself.
