August 2023 Chapter Gathering

Hello EAA Chapter 179 Members and Friends – Join us!

The August Chapter Gathering is scheduled for
Tuesday, August 15th
Join us – in person!

5:15 PM — Dinner at BJ’s Reasaurant and Brewhouse
6:15PM — Program: Air Venture Adventures

This month we will hear from Members who attended the world’s greatest aviation celebration, EAA’s AirVenture, commonly known as “Oshkosh”.

Art Woods will kick off the program, ”If you attended this year, we invite you to share your stories during an impromptu round-table discussion. Bring photos on a USB drive to cycle through during dinner or to illustrate your story.”

And … we will hear from our scholarship recipients that attended the EAA Air Academy in Oshkosh, being released to experience AirVenture for the first time!

Each month, these “Chapter Gatherings” offer time to network with programs centered on exchanging experiences and ideas about aviation – airplanes, flying, and flying activities – rather than the chapter business which is addressed in bimonthly Board meetings. Again this month, in the midst of the summer’s heat, we will meet at a restaurant. You may anticipate that with cooler weather in September, we will return to Double Eagle II Airport.

Where:  BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse at Cottonwood Mall 10000 Coors Blvd, Albuquerque

Directions:   —    North or South bound on Coors Blvd to Cottonwood Mall, 10000 Coors Blvd NW. Take the Cottonwood Loop around to the south end of the parking lot. BJ’s is in a building of its own.
