OLD BUSINESS:
1. Treasurer’s Report: Randy and Terry gave a report on our financial status. Because the weather’s been cooperative, more flying is being done. We have several large bills (airplane repairs, fuel, rent, etc.) that have come in and are expected to come in, so keep ’em flying, folks, we need the cash.
2. Airplanes: Terry reported on the status of our airplanes. 11157’s starter has been installed. THANKS from everyone to Tim for getting the Chief fixed and flying again.
3. We should have excellent weather for our brunch this Sunday. Mango said Jeff and Lynn Scheer (Tim’s brothers) will help him cook. We have a great menu planned. We need volunteers for safety, to take money for brunch and airplane rides, clean-up, etc. Also, we need volunteers to help set up on Saturday at 9:00. Ryan will be air boss, as Terry will be unavailable. Brett will do safety (he needs others to help). Rick will take money or whatever. We need more volunteers with everything.
NEW BUSINESS:
1. Discussion was held re a plaque for a very special member of the Club. Rick will take care of ordering it.
2. Steve Smith donated (as a fundraiser or to hang on our own walls) three absolutely beautiful photographs he took at OSH and Green Castle, blew them up, and framed them. Discussion was held whether to hold a silent auction, take bids, or the best way to market them. They’ll be on display at the brunch this Sunday.
Rick moved with second by Randy that we adjourn. Vote taken; Motion carried. Meeting adjourned at 7:04 PM
