Chapter 32 Events

  • We are hoping to set up a fabric covering seminar or classes later this year. Due to material cost and preparation items we may have to charge a small fee to cover items such as frames to cover and materials. I would like to keep this no more than $20-$30 for members. It should include basic covering as well as rib stitching. Fellow chapter members will teach this. How many people would be interested? Please contact a chapter officer.
  • We have a number of members who are proficient at MIG and to some degree TIG welding. Please contact Don Doherty on helping with other members learning to weld.
  • Volunteers are needed to help grass cutting once a month. During active growing season the grass needs to be cut once a week. During the dry season this sometimes drops to every two to three weeks. Volunteers need to be checked out on the mower. Cutting time takes about 1.5-2 hrs. Right now we have 2 or three people and need a couple more that are reliable. I would like to spend some of my weekends flying instead of cutting the ARC grass. Please contact Don Doherty.

Upcoming Area Events

7th Annual Pumpkin Drop & Open House

Put Saturday October 24th on your calender. Come see the Commemorative Air force's B25 Bomber and the Avenger Torpedo Bomber make strafing runs using pumpkins as bombs and attempting to hit the target in the middle of the airport. Come by car or plane and have barbecue lunch to be provided by EAA Chapter 32 with all proceeds supporting the chapter's work in General Aviation. Rent an airplane or bring your own, and participate in the Pumpkin Drop. Win cash prize money while having fun with your bomber crew, hurling pumpkins from the airplane and attempting to hit the old Cessna in the middle of the airport from 700 fleet above the ground. Bring the kids, play in the bounce house, and get up close and personal with vintage WWII airplanes based here at the airport. Activities begin at 9AM with Coffee and Doughnuts provided by St. Charles Flying Service. Registration and pilot briefings to begin at that time. Contact St. Charles Flying Service or call 1-800-447-6066 for more information.
