I got up early and got some work done (I was on call) before waving yo Vic (off to her mother's for the weekend) and headed over to the airport. I put gas in the plane before going and working on the EAA hangar doors. We were putting in insulation, but wanted the weatherstripping on the bottom done first. I did the weatherstripping on the North door while others started cutting the foam sheets, then went to fly Randy's 9 year old daughter in the gyro while they got that door done. Randy doesn't have his gyro endorsement yet, but has bought Don's old Magni, and doesn't want his daughter to have to wait to try flying in a gyro. We waited a stupid length of time for everybody to sort themselves out so we could get on the runway, then went out in a large circle, with turns and slow flying and stuff. She was a little worried about doing steep turns at first, but we worked up to that and she really enjoyed them. We got back just before Randy was due to go out for his flying lesson, so he could see I hadn't killed her, but Don was running a little late. We were chatting when Scott came and asked me to come and talk to the scholarship committee about putting stuff on the web. Done. When that was over, we went back to the hangar, where the first door wasn't finished yet, so I sorted out the weatherstripping on the South door, then helped with the projector screen mount. Eventually we got to the South door, and got that all finished up. I chatted to Chris about his gyro for a little bit, then headed home to get some work done.
