In spite of the threat of rain we had a great time at our Fifth Annual Chapter BBQ at San Rafael airport last Saturday, with over 75 people in attendance including chapter members, friends from the Gnoss Field Community Association (GFCA) and tenants at CA35. Jimmy's Meats (Jimmy's a hangar tenant at San Rafael) provided a fabulous array of high-quality hamburgers, hot dogs, and most of all five different types of sausages. Chapter president Ken McKenzie did all the heavy lifting by cooking for over three hours, plus setting up and cleaning the grill beforehand. Ted Pugh was the driving force for making this event happen, and he was two days removed from returning from a weekend in Oshkosh for the Chapter Leader's Academy at EAA HQ. Needless to say he was enthused and had lots of stories to share.
We have lots of good things planned for the chapter in the coming months including our annual EAA/GFCA/Marin 99s Annual Holiday Pot Luck the evening of December 9, but in the meantime here's a link to some photos from the BBQ: https://photos.app.goo.gl/L2t3pnarK1lzFrdg2
