Welcome to Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Chapter 35

We have our own clubhouse with full kitchen and two restrooms. The clubhouse seats up to 80 people. Facilities include an outdoor patio with large concrete grill pad for cooking up some great food and six large picnic tables too! The chapter building is available for rental to members at a very reasonable price. Contact Freda Jones, Facilities Chairperson, for details & dates available, 210-570-9435 .

As in previous years, bribery in the form of (name your favorite beer) are not condoned and are not guaranteed to sway the vote.
