Smart Field Open House and Pumpkin Drop

Pumpkin dropSmartt Field Open House and SCFS Pumpkin Drop – EAA32 will be holding an Open House at our facility, and otherwise participating in the open house selling BBQ lunch meals to the public. This is becoming a very popular event, with a large number of people coming to watch the CAF do runs with their warbirds, dropping pumpkins at a target located on the east side of runway 18/36. In addition, there will be a competition hosted by SCFS for pilots to try and hit the target. Each entrant gets three runs to drop a pumpkin on the target Cash prized are awarded to those dropping their loads closest to the target. It’s a lot of fun for everyone. Our chapter is tasked with some crowd control duties and meal preparation, as well as having people at the ARC talking about what we do as a chapter. A number of people in the area will most likely fly in with their planes as they have in the past. It’s a great opportunity to present general aviation to the public. See flyer or St. Charles Flying Service website for more details.

Movie of the Month: Always

Movie of the MonthWhen: Saturday October 28, 2017
Time: Potluck: 6pm, Movie: 7pm
Where: EAA Chapter 32 Avation Resource Center

Richard Dreyfuss stars as a reckless fire-fighting pilot who is killed in what was to have been his final mission. Ascending to Heaven, Dreyfuss is introduced to
businesslike angel Audrey Hepburn (playing the equivalent of the Lionel Barrymore role in A Guy Named Joe). Hepburn (in her last big screen appearance) instructs the spectral Dreyfuss to pass on his aviation knowhow to his young successor, Brad Johnson.


Our ghostly hero also smoothes the course of romance for his earthly girl friend Holly Hunter, who after several months' worth of grieving has fallen in love with Johnson.

Release date: December 22, 1989
Director: Stephen Spielberg
Running time: 123 minutes

Help Needed

Bud Griesbach Injuries

Henry 'Bud' Griesbach is a dedicated Airventure Volunteer. Bud has been volunteering his time to Flight Line Ops for 28 years. This summer, while volunteering, Bud sustained a significant head and neck injury and was subsequently hospitalized. It is my sincere hope that we can come together to collect funds to help get Bud back on his feet as he will need several weeks of rehabilitation. With that being said, please consider donating to help Bud with some of this financial burden. Even the smallest amount is greatly appreciated! Go to the Gofundme page at: https://www.gofundme.com/henry-bud-griesbach-recovery-fund

Help Build a Home for B-29 "Doc"

The new home for Doc will be an interactive B-29 Hangar and Education Center. Your gift will help us finalize our flight plan. Generations to come will have the opportunity to enjoy and experience this prominent figure in our nation's history. B-29 Doc will act as a back drop inside the center for the public to enjoy bits of science, technology, engineering and mathematics that go hand-in-hand with aviation. Help build the new home at: http://kck.st/2vIJvRe

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.
