|From the Editor
This month’s newsletter contains a LOT of business, minutes from
meetings that did not get into the last newsletter, and proposed Articles
of Incorporation. This is much more business than we will have in future
Future Newsletters should contain a lot of stories about Chapter
activities and members activities. There are a LOT of things happening,
and a LOT of members working on projects. Hopefully this newsletter will
be able to reflect much of that activity.
I think that Wayne Asp provides excellent meeting minutes. If you
agree, you ought to tell him so. I also think that our president does a
wonderful job of writing a column each month. If you agree, you might want
to mention it to him.
It is YOUR newsletter, use it. I can help edit your stories if you
wish, but I barely have the talents to do the mechanics of publishing.
Assembling these stories into a legible format and getting them printed
and mailed is a big chore.
Don Carlson has a digital camera and will help get photos for your
To help get your stories into YOUR newsletter, I offer the following
alternatives to choose from:
Mail them to me at:

or e-Mail them to me at:
or voice mail them to me at:
or call me at:
I look forward to helping YOU with YOUR newsletter. Think of us often.
In a previous column, I mentioned something
about talent and volunteerism and the “can do” spirit that is
prevalent within the EAA and how all of that is available to all of us at
the Chapter level. As if to emphasize and illustrate that spirit, we have
recently been presented with our very own Chapter Grille. This is a piece
of equipment we will be able to use for our pancake breakfasts, or any
other function for which it would be useful, long into the future.
About a year ago it was just a germ of an idea that Gary Miller
had. He suggested we could save money and a lot of headaches if we had our
own grille. So he pushed and went forward with the idea. He went to Dave
Fiebiger for design and fabrication assistance. It was discussed, both
formally and informally, at our Chapter and board meetings. It was
approved and budgeted, and Dave and Gary went ahead and built it. It was
truly a Chapter Project. Paul Anderson, Norm Dupre, Dave Fiebiger, Dennis
Hoffman, Al Kupferschmidt, Fred Martin, Bill Shanks, Norm Weston, Jim
Zimmerman, Gary Miller, Paul Liedl all helped. The grille was fired up at
the Chapter House on Sat. Mar. 18. There were pancakes and sausages
grilled for about 20 people and according to them, the grille is a
resounding success.. You can view an account of the event by logging on to
www.eaa54.org and clicking on News Etc.
Speaking of talent and volunteerism, our Newsletter Editor, Dick
Wicklund, has stepped down. I am very saddened by this event. I would very
much have liked for him to continue. He has been wholly responsible for
the quality of the Newsletter as we have come to know it for the past
years. He has improved it to the format that we now see and his
devotion to deadlines and getting it mailed out on time has been much
I, for one, always looked forward to receiving it in the mail and when
it came it was always the first piece of mail that I would look at. We owe
Dick a tremendous debt of gratitude and I'm looking forward to seeing him
around the airport now that he has more free time. Being Newsletter Editor
is a tough job as well as a very thankless and time consuming one. Thanks
a lot Dick and enjoy your increased free time.
There will be a board meeting at the
Chapter House on Thurs. April 6, at 7:00 P.M. The agenda will include a
discussion on the approval of our Chapter sponsorship of the EAA Chapter
Leadership Conference that will take place on May 6. Also we will discuss
details and planning for the Chapter banquet that will take place on May
8th at Mancini's. Dennis Hoffman, Programs Director, will be the topic for
job description. The workparty weekend is also coming up on the weekend of
May 6. Jim Anderson is heading up the committee for the Leadership
Conference, so I hope he can make it to the board meeting. Also, I think
Jerry Sarracco is making the arrangements for the Workparty weekend, so I
hope he can also make it to the board meeting. Anyone else who would like
to attend is more than welcome.

|We need YOUR
vote. We have to change the Articles of Incorporation, and we need a
majority of all members to vote YES, in order to make the change. Please
read the following, then phone in or e-mail your YES vote. If you do not
vote, you are voting NO. Don’t delay, vote YES. Your board approved
these changes last month.
As some of you know, Chapter 54 is no longer recognized as a valid
corporation by the state of Minnesota. We failed to file a required annual
report for the past few years, and have been dissolved by the state. The
required form is sent each year, to the address that the State thinks is
valid for the corporation.
In order to set ourselves straight with the State
of Minnesota, we have to submit two forms, an annual report, and a change
to the articles of incorporation - showing our new address. Making these
changes will cost us $60.00.
At the same time that we change our articles of incorporation to show
our new address, we can make some other changes that will make us more apt
to be able to receive 501(c)(3) exemption from the IRS. This can be done
for the same cost.
After reviewing the Minneapolis Chapter (25) and the Duluth Chapter
articles of incorporation (which are identical), I have drafted the
following changes to our articles of amendment. Please pay particular note
to the first sentence of the first article. All of the rest, except for
the address change, is legal jumbo to help make it possible to later apply

packet (paperwork) for pilots and streamlining the check-in process.
Jerry S. updated us on the hanger insurance situation and MAC
representation. The Tax Committee of the MN State House is considering a
bill to change hanger classifications from commercial property. This

Gary Miller - Update on the grill construction. We need two propane
tanks (40#). Burners are being built. Lots of holes to drill!!
Dan Parker - Chapter Banquet will be held May 8 at Mancinni's. We could

|Board Meeting Minutes
These minutes were not included in last month’s newsletter.
Present: Wayne Asp, Bill Schanks, Gary Miller, Dennis Hoffman, Bob
Waldron, Dan Parker, Scott Hutchinson, Art Edhlund
Meeting called to order by Bill at 7:39 p.m.
Dan Parker discussed location for annual banquet (Lake Elmo Inn, Mancini's
and Applewood). What is cost to members and is this a fundraiser (maybe a
silent auction). Also should we have door prizes. Looking at second
Tuesday in April. Consensus is to hold it meeting night in April at
Discussion of Expo and staffing a booth. This is on short notice. Last
year we got one new member and sold a few calendars. Need more lead time
to put something together. Will try for next year.
Treasurers Report - Bob Waldron. Review of current financials. We have
$4,070 in cash and bank accounts and $2,767 in the building fund . We are
on budget. Discussion of classification as a 501(c)(3) organization. Must
be an education organization to do this. Newsletter must reflect this.
There are other financial ramifications. 501(c)(3) would allow tax
deductible contributions for the contributors. Would not have to be a
501(c)(3) until our gross income is over $5000 per year for 3 years. Some
other chapters have filed for this.
Chapter Leadership conference (Shanks). Discussion of holding workshops in
4 local hangers and food. Guessing 100 people at $10 each. To be held May
6. Too bad this is work party weekend for Oshkosh. How to staff for food,
etc?? Potluck is an option. Needs to be for breakfast and lunch.
Bob Waldron discussed web page
progress report -- need more info on biographies and photos to post.
Membership - Scott Hutchinson. Discussion of membership committee
responsibilities. Several new ideas were presented for gaining and
retaining members. A chapter information package example was displayed and
costs discussed. Also consider sending an update package every year upon
renewal. Include letter from Chapter President. Chapter vision and
objectives should also be developed and included. We all need to
contribute to this. Should include Young Eagles, programs, fellowship, and
Flying Start. Scott will get this started for next month. Also a big EAA
logo to draw attention and decals. Dennis Hoffman presented decal costs
for two different styles.
Motion by Waldron to purchase 500 decals of the outside style for $425.
Second by Hoffman. M/C.
Waldron discussed changing dues structure to cover first year cost of
supplying new members with book and decals. Could also hold down costs by
Membership committee could market decals and patches at the pancake
breakfasts and other events. Non renewing members should also be contacted
to discuss reasons for leaving the Chapter. Membership committee should be
responsible for retaining members and keeping them happy.
Clothing (caps, hats, shirts, etc) should be explored and could be used
for marketing and also to identify members at events, like the pancake
breakfast. Some clothing is available from Oshkosh.
We need to ensure that the program and other chapter activities as well as
chapter vision are defined and implemented before beginning really
proactive membership recruitment.
Discussion of who has keys for clubhouse.
Gary Miller discussed grill progress. Fred Martin has done a lot of
welding and work on it. This should be recognized by the Chapter. Motion
by Miller, second by Parker to provide one year honorary membership. M/C.
Fundraising opportunities - Dan Parker. Idea of auction using $1 tickets.
Dan will pursue.

Program -- Presentation by Paul Ferry from
Princeton Flight Service Station.
Paul is a Specialist. He was hired by the FAA in 1985, moved to FSS in
1988, and to Princeton in 1990. Princeton FSS has a very senior group of
Proper Radio contact procedures. Always state WHO you are, WHAT
FREQuency you are on, and WHERE you are. Many pilots neglect to do this,
and which makes it hard for the FSS Specialist to get back to them. This
is because Princeton has 54 frequencies and 23 additional flight watch
frequencies/locations. If the pilot does not give a freq and location, the
Specialist has to guess. Even just giving a location will help a lot.
Paul discussed the difference between Simplex and Duplex transmissions.
It seems that many pilots do not know the difference or how to use them.
Simplex is send and receive on the same freq. Duplex is listening on one
freq (typically a VOR) and transmitting on another. (example 122.1R to
transmit and 108.4 TVF VOR to listen). Make sure volume is turned up on
the VOR receiver. An AFSS transmission will preempt the code identifier on
Flight Watch is manned by the same specialists but uses different freqs.
122.0 for low altitude, 135.675 for high altitude. There are many
communication outlets scattered across the region. It is important for the
pilot to give Flight Watch both WHO they are calling and LOCATION. If they
pilot does not state WHO they are calling then it is very possible no
Specialist will answer since their call is likely received by multiple
stations if they are at a higher altitude. Flight watch is for current
weather and is preferred for pilot reports. Will also handle Emergencies.
The TIBS channels have weather info. Call 1-800-WX-BRIEF. Oshkosh is
the busy season for Princeton, since lots of traffic generates lots of
requests. TIBS even has procedures during Oshkosh.
Responsibility for getting the weather report prior to flight is that
of pilot. Any mechanism can be used, such as CH 17, TIBS, etc. The legal
liability for getting or not getting a full briefing is really a FSDO
Paul invited members to visit Princeton AFSS facility next time they
are at Princeton.
There was a series of questions from the audience regarding what
happens during a briefing and what information the Specialist has access
to. The AFSS has some new radar imagery (NOWRAD & NEXRAD). Specialist
can call up overlays which show precip type, liquid, mix, snow on the
radar image. WSI is the weather graphics vendor. If you have seen CH 17,
tell the briefer as well as any concerns you have regarding the weather
you have seen.
Also new is the Velocity Azimuth Display-VAD which tracks winds aloft
in real time (actual winds) by altitude. This is done on a 3-4 minute time
interval. It measures movement of water droplets in air - and the percent
accuracy depends on returns from the water droplets. It is also possible
to tell where cloud tops are (no data returned) This is new technology
with limited implementation now at Princeton, but ask if it is available.
For those members who live in Wisconsin, the toll number to reach
Princeton directly is 763-389-5880.
Paul made several other points in response to questions:
Do not give your cell phone number for flight plans, leave an emergency
number with somebody there who knows your plans and where you should be.
Make sure to cancel your flight plans. The Specialist will prompt for
all the PIREP items if you do not have the template with you.
There are never have enough PIREPS, especially during nice VFR weather.
PIREPS are primary responsibility of the AFSS, secondary responsibility
for tower, ARTCC, etc.
Winds aloft forecast is usually quite accurate in the short term. There
is a TIBS-dedicated channel with fly in events around MN which are taken
from the MN Flyer.
Briefing types are Standard, Abbreviated, and Outlook . But in any case
the Specialist wants to provide the information that pilot needs. If you
want more information about something, ASK!! About 60% of the Specialists
are pilots, with 20% being active pilots.
Paul passed out a short survey to several members-looking for what is
right and what
improvements we would like to see in the AFSS.
Meeting adjourned at 9:15 pm.
Wayne R. Asp
is Al Kupferschmidt, our wonderful Young Eagles coordinator. Al has come
up with a ‘packet’ of information for all Young Eagle pilots. The packet contains registration forms and other pertinent info.
