Building EAA Chapter Membership - Conquering the Caveman -

Before I say anything about building EAA Chapter membership I have to talk about men. Im not leaving women out because they aren't important to an organization; it's just that women don't seem have the same issues that men do when it comes to being a social animal. Women have an inherent ability to "join in" and become part of any group they show interest in.

My wife, who was a research scientist for many years, used to work with a team of Nobel Prize winning scientists, who at times, drove her nuts. Sometimes she would come home at the end the day, steaming and yelling "ARRRGH! Those MEN! They are a bunch of stubborn Neanderthals!" Although I often took offense to some of her comments, I knew it was probably best to just lay low and not throw fuel on the fire.

Featured Fun Place to FLY! Heritage in Flight - WWII Aero Museum, Lincoln, IL
"The museum is housed in a World War II German POW barracks that was in a POW camp near Macomb, Illinois called Camp Ellis. The contents of the HIF Museum include memorabilia and artifacts from all of the military conflicts dating back to World War I. On display are mementos donated by veterans and those on the home front. Various military branches have also donated many aircraft and other military vehicles that are located outside the museum. The rotating beacon at the Logan County Airport (AAA) was part of the lighted airway system route from St. Louis to Chicago. This was the route that Charles Lindbergh flew as an airmail pilot. This is an old museum that is being updated by volunteers (so donations are greatly appreciated) ." - Submitted by sstolarik.
