The Saturday morning breakfast we had was a resounding success. The eggs to order, the bacon fried crispy, the fruit garnish, the DVD movie on Alaskan Piper Cubs landing on very short sandbars, all made it a great get-together for those who chose to attend. After all was cleaned up and put away a survey of those in attendance agreed we should have a Saturday morning breakfast meeting once a month so that will be our plan for the coming months. Our thanks goes out to John Hayes who led the cooking effort and to Gary Fender for helping in the cleanup. We will be looking for a volunteer cook for next month so if you love to cook here is your chance to show everyone you're cooking skills.
For those of you who couldn’t make to the breakfast, you missed a good one. Hopefully once we announce the schedule for July we can get a better turnout.
High Lights from the BMG Airport Board Meeting include:
A new PAPI to replace the VASI on runway 17 is coming.
A new approach lighting system for the ILS on runway 35 is coming.
Watch for NOTAMS on both these items.
A barrier along the fence line around the entire airport is being constructed to prevent animals from crawling under the fence.
Land purchase for the 55 acres north of the airport is now complete.
Cook Aviation lease has been extended 5 years.
CAP will be parking their communication trailer somewhere inside the fence on the airport. Exact location TBD.
After discussion it was unanimous that there will NOT be any formal airshow activity at the airport due to a number of issues.This does not rule out anything the EAA may bring in for demonstrations.
Everyone Fly Safe and have a Great 4th of July.
