This is time of the year that we celebrate the holidays with family and friends. We did so with our fellow EAA members at our annual Christmas party. It was a wonderful gathering with a group of great people. Thanks to Ron, Jon, and the Dials for setting it up. Special thanks to those that donated prizes with a special thanks to Jamie Deventcenty and Rocky Mountain Flower for the teddy bear and the 10 gallons of fuel. Our speaker Bill gave a great presentation on being a flight test engineer for several projects and an intriguing mission to Kuwait. He has written several books and if interested please contact Jon Fredrick for more information.
We are looking forward to the New Year with several items starting in January. We will have our first quarter Chapter 808 meeting at Pueblo Memorial Airport, January 13th; followed by several board members attending an EAA sponsored Leadership Boot Camp in Denver on January 27th. Next will be a fly out to La Junta (KLHX) on February 10th for a chapter meeting and recruitment. March 14th will be at Fremont County for a presentation on Basic Med.
David Springer is working on an updated e-mail listing and dues collection. Please, if you have not paid your dues please send them to David.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year see you in 2018!
The President, Terrence Terrill
