EAA MEETING TUESDAY 5-10-16: (Excerpts from newsletter) Greetings all EAA’ers, A big thank you goes out to Todd Scruton and his family for hosting our March meeting at their home. We are planning on two very busy events between now and our June meeting. The first event will be on Sunday, May 22nd and will be held at the Concord Airport in Concord, NH.  Last year’s Concord event was very well attended and lots of Young Eagles from central NH got to take flight. The annual Wings and Wheels event to be held at Skyhaven Airport on Saturday, June 4th. This is probably our biggest event of the year with more Young Eagles than we can probably fly. Our BBQ will start at 6PM and the meeting at 7PM.   Cooking will take place at the clubhouse and then we will migrate down to the FBO office for the meeting. Happy Building and Safe Flying, John Ricciotti EAA 225, chapter president (603)781-6572 CLICK HERE TO READ FULL NEWSLETTER
