50 Years in EAA by David Woodcock
About our Speaker:
A 50 year love of aviation began with the building of a Bowers FlyBaby. My interest in EAA started in 1967 and 1968 at the first Arlington Fly-in. I became active in Seattle EAA Chapter 26 as a Chapter officer. I assisted Dick Baxter of EAA 84, then manager of Spencer Aircraft, with the organization, planning, and getting volunteers for the growing Arlington Fly-in.
1975 – 1977 Program Director and Chapter President EAA 26, Seattle
1976 – 77 Organized Arlington EAA Fly-in with EAA 84, 441 and 326; became first Fly-in Director (1977 to about 1985).
Arlington grew during this time to the third largest EAA Fly-in in the US.

ATTENTION. Subject Blue Ribbon Runway winter condition:
The eastern 600 ft of runway 28 is extremely wet and soft from all the rain and poor drainage. We consider it unusable at this point. The remaining 1300 ft west is ok to use at pilots discretion but call or check the Blue Ribbon Farms website for a current update. We expect this condition to persist through the winter. We are evaluating options to correct the problem. One possible plan is to regrade, bring in new soil adding a crown with about a 2 degree slope for drainage and reseed later this spring.
