and you know what that means!
Would you like to see a change in direction of the Chapter?
Maybe you would like to be part of or lead that change.
Well, this is your chance. The floor is now open and taking nominations for our 2014 Chapter Officer elections.
If you know somebody that you think would do a good job as a Chapter 582 Officer (President, Vice President, Secretary or Treasurer) nominate them. Oh, you may want to talk with them about this before you get carried away...... but you can do it.
Simply go to the Chapter Events forum or click on the link below and submit their name.
Perhaps you would like to run for office yourself. You can throw your own hat in the ring and give it a go!
This is your opportunity to take part, change or become involved with the chapter leadership.
As nominations are submitted... and hopefully accepted by the candidate, we will keep you advised as to their position and platforms. Then on November 27th we will hold our elections.
Because the exact location and procedure of this years voting has not been finalized, further information about the election will follow.
In the mean time, give your nomination some thought. Then submit his... or her name here.
A Special Thank You!
I want to take this time to acknowledge and thank all the volunteers that took part in Toledo Public School's AVIATION EXPO. The event was a big success as far as I am concerned. As a group we processed and flew 241 Young Eagles!
To the registered volunteers:
Andy Abreu Denise Knotts
Hank Povolny Mike Beresni
Laura Johnson Paul Johnson
Scott Riggs Carter Riggs
Mike Whitescarver Brigitte David
Thank you all for your time, your patience, and your willingness to learn. This went better than the first time and we will certainly be getting together to discuss ways to make the process better. You dealt with a shortage of pilots/planes, an abundance of kids, and the inevitable disgruntled parent with calm and patience. All of you are fantastic!
Young Eagle Pilots:
Bill David Danik Kumar
Jay Treat II William "Bill" Tabbert
Bill Hirzel Jim Wurst
Gentlemen..... What to say? The magic happens because of your love of flight and willingness to share it. Flat tires, bad mags and broken radios did not deter you. Nicely done!
Brigitte David - THANKS for the donuts!! That was above and beyond!
Everyone please put together some thoughts about how to make the process better. We will, in the near future, have a debrief to collect and share those thoughts.
It was a great weekend!
Thank you all,
Chapter 582, Vice President
Has been cancelled
Friday HATH's continue...
but time is running out!
If you haven't taken the opportunity to stop out at the hangar for one of the Friday night HATH's, time is running out........ and along with it our Summer flying season.
Friday nights have been fun so far and I'd hate to see you miss these closing few events. From airplanes rides to fly-by, from good food to fly'en stories. It's a great way to stay involved and up to date with the chapter happenings.
So jump in your Airplane, hop in your car, saddle up your cycle, however you want to do it... come on out and enjoy a burgers or a brat with the membership.
If you can, bring a dish to share, a story to tell.... and a friend that would enjoy.. Hang'en at the Hangar!
Hey, maybe you'd like to make a comment. Or have a question about a certain topic. Maybe you would like to start your "own" topic.... from your "own" web page! How about adding the pictures you took from the last EAA event you attended? You can even start a new forum about the airplane you are thinking about building.

Welding Class Follow-Up
We received great response and participation to our last "Introduction to OXY Acetylene gas welding class. As a consequence, there has been interest by others when the class will be offered again.
If you are one of these people that would like to see this introductory class run a second time, please add a posting to the: OXY Acetylene Gas Welding Class forum.
When interest reaches critical mass... We will open registration. We are looking to have this class offered again sometime in the fall.
There is a difference between a "Forum" and a "Blog".
A Forum is a place where you can go and write a comment on a topic or give your opinion. You will find a number of them on our website, all of which are available from the "Forum" tab above. For the most part a Forum is considered more conversational than a Blog.
The format of a Forum is usually light and general banter about a given topic. Someone starts the conversation or forum by throwing out a comment about said topic. Others read the posting and comment back as to their feelings.
A Blog on the other hand, is usually considered more of a "statement" by the author of the Blog. Depending upon how the blog has been set up, will dictate where the reader will be able to comment, or not, as to what has been posted.
You can subscribe to a "Forum"?
Instead of getting an email every time something changes on the website.... you can limit your email, but still stay in touch with Chapter happenings by only subscribing to the Forums you choose.
Oh, you may not want to follow every forum on the 582 Website... so only subscribe to the ones that interest you. Let's just say you would like to follow the progress on the Chapter Flaire project.... you may even choose to make a comment about the last entry. Simply find the "Flaire Forum" on this page, click on it and magically you will be at the "Flaire Forum" In the upper right hand corner of the page you will see blue text saying, "subscribe", click on the text and you're done. You are in touch wilth all the latest happenings and commentary as updates get posted.
P.S. Don't be afraid..... You can unsubscribe just as easily!
