Annual meeting and Crab Feed
Every year during the first quarter of the year, BEFA holds its annual meeting. The meeting is begun with a crab feed (chicken also) for a very nominal charge. When everyone is too full to move, the officers give reports on the current state of the association and what the plans for the coming year are, and take questions from the general membership. The Member of the Year is announced.
Bath and Barbecue
This event gets the association members together to spruce up the association’s facility and to wash all the airplanes. It’s a lot of work, but the reward is that the association sponsors a barbecue at the hangar in the evening for those members who have pitched in and their families. The Bath and Barbecue is a really good way to get to know your fellow association members.
