The COVID 19 pandemic has made shambles of what all of us perceive to be normal. Governor Walz’ stay at home order further complicates our daily lives. As of today, and in effect until May 18th, Minnesotans are asked to stay at home unless there is a need to pick up essential items such as groceries or food, prescriptions, and gas, to relocate for safety reasons, or go to work if their job is deemed essential in a sector. Although visiting the flying field isn’t deemed essential, I have a tendency to put it in the same category as golfing, which has been approved recently as an acceptable outdoor public activity. I encourage members who visit the field to practice social distancing and to wear a mask if they feel the need.
Cannon Falls Lions Pancake Breakfast
Scheduled for June 21st, I anticipate that this event will be cancelled due to the COVID 19 pandemic. Information will be shared when more is available.
Rivertown Days 2020
The Annual Rivertown Days event has been cancelled. We WILL NOT be hosting a flying demonstration this year.
Since we haven’t had a meeting since March and may not for a few more weeks, I ask any member who hasn’t renewed membership for 2020 to do so by mail prior to May 22nd. Please include with your completed application a copy of your current AMA Card and payment. Don’t forget to check the box whether you would allow your contact information to be shared with other members. Steve’s address is on the application.
Annual Building Contest
In recent years we have held a building contest at the June meeting. I think we can continue to plan for this date, for the time being. I will keep members up-to-date via email.
