    The meeting was held at the Rushford airport after the scheduled Snowshoe walk.

    Meeting was called to order by President Russ Marsolek at 7:05 p.m.

    The minutes of the January meeting were approved as listed in the EAA newsletter.

    Treasurer, Helen Marsolek, reported a balance on hand of $3344.71.

    Old Business:

    Walt reported the Chapter is up-to-date with filings for 2010 tax year.

    The Chile Feed which will be held at the Rushford airport on March 19, 2011, will

    begin serving at 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. All members willing to help need to arrive at 9:00

    a.m. Posters and emails will be delivered and sent to other airports and the media to advertise.

    New Business:

    It was suggested and approved to present a donation to the EAA and the AOPA or-

    ganizations in the amount of $150 each.

    It was approved the Chapter will sponsor three (3) women to participate in the

    Women Soar You Soar program.

    Discussion was held on how the Chapter could incorporate advertising for the Rush-

    ford airport AND the city of Rushford. Preliminary plans will be drawn up and discussed at

    following meeting.

    The meeting adjourned at 8:20 p.m.

    Submitted by Diane Kohner, Secretary

    Winona MN. Weather Almanac.

    The March average high temp 42O. The aver-age low temp. is 21O. And the average precip

    is 1.8 in March.

    The correct answer to the Question Of The Month is A

  • above Peterson MN. (and then back to the airport).

    Leaving at about 3:00 PM these hikers enjoyed the 28 de-

    gree winter afternoon while trekking south. Taking in the

    sights and sounds of Minnesota at its finest. Even the wild-

    life was there to greet us! White-tail deer, grouse, and a

    Bald Eagle were among some of the critters seen.

    And finally, back at the lodge around 6:30 PM (55Ys air-

    port lounge!) everyone enjoyed the BBQs and hot Apple

    Cider that was awaiting them! At the lodge, one of the

    cutest sights to see were the dogs though. After all of that

    fresh air, each one of them had staked out a little spot and

    went to sleep. Dog-tired! Actually I think that a few of us

    would liked to have joined them!

    Will EAA 919 host this event again next year? You bet. So

    come on out and join us!

    I do wish to thank everyone that

    brought some goodies to eat, and to

    Mike Thern who was able to line up

    snowshoes for those who didnt have


    Thanks again everyone!

    L-R, Gregg, Shannon, Terry,

    Lori, Lowell, Barb, Mike, Helen,

    and Pdon.

    The 2011 Annual

    Snowshoe hike was

    great! The EAA 919 annual Snowshoe

    hike is getting bigger and bigger

    every year! This year 10 mem-

    bers and friends (plus 4 dogs!)

    hiked during the day to the ridge

  • George (Winona MN FBO) reported that the runway exten-sion project is going ahead in Winona (ONA). It will be a 3-year project financed 95% by federal money.

    A side note to the snowshoe hike.

    I took the Trail 90 out a week after the hike to see exactly how

    far we trekked! Well, the answer is 2.1 miles each way (4.2 total

    miles). No wonder we all (the dogs included) were tired!
