EAA Chapter 72 
      from the desk of Sandy




Meeting -Tuesday, July 19th - Program: 7:00 PM 


The first flight of Bud Silvers 1931 Fleet Model 7 was on June 3rd.  We don't have photos, but after that he and Anne took off for the BiPlane Fly-In in Junction City, Ks on the 4th and he was caught on video.  He'll be sharing a presentation of his project from start to finish. 


Going to Air Venture?


I hope a lot of you are able to make it to Air Venture.  Even though we won't be there, I'd like you to keep up the sometime tradition of meeting at the old control tower at noon on Thursday for a chapter photo.  


Also, I've been contacted by Corey Hodges, looking to share a flight to Oshkosh.  If you have room, please email him.

Think it's too many peaches?  Did you know?   


"Peaches freeze well. Don't wash them, just stick them in a ziplock bag and freeze. Take them out later and run under warm water. The skin pulls right off and you can slice them up for cobbler, etc."
