2017 Christmas Auction

Written by Tony Dennis on . Posted in Uncategorized


Auction Brochure 2017

This is the second of six weekly emails leading up to our Christmas Auction hi-liting specific donations made by our CAA members to the 2017 CAA Christmas Auction.

We want to make sure each and every CAA member attending our Christmas auction is well aware of the really nice donations that have been made and will be up for bid.


Two donations fit the category of  “Engine” related.


  1. The first of these is a donation from Jack “Smilin’ Jack” Kahle.

Custom Vintage Minibike, Restored.  If you were at our last Thursday meeting then you enjoyed Bob Stark mo-tating through the dinner crowd, horn honking.  This minibike comes complete with Airspeed indicator from a jet!  Pin striping to accent its fire engine red paint, horn and a Briggs & Stratton engine.  It is truly one of a kind.


  1. Our second donation is from club member Bob Stark of Starks Twin Oaks Airport.

100 gallons of Avgas.  Bob and family operate a very busy airport just West of Hillsboro.  They offer hangar rentals, mechanic services and space for the local EAA chapter to meet.  Additionally the EAA chapter holds a flyin breakfast once a month that is very enjoyable and brings in a crowd.

CAA club functions have also been held at Stark’s Twin Oaks.

Bob requests the Avgas be used within 1 year of the auction.
