OLD BUSINESS:  

Gravel south of container and extend driveway, Dart believes that we will need 6 loads of rock, he also presented a price on both truck time and gravel.  Motion made and seconded to go ahead with gravel delivery. Scheduled for the September 19th.

A new windsock is needed for the south end of the field.  Mark will get new pipe and install.

There has been some questions regarding the need of a control line area to be located at the south end near the container. After discussion there is not enough interest at this time to proceed.

Special thanks to Mark Weeks for spending the entire day brush hogging the open field area beyond the runway.  He did point out that it would not be possible without Ranger Dave and the use of  the Brush-Hog.  Thanks to all.

Octobers meeting does not look good for Alfys Pizza so a motion was made to have the meeting on October 17th at 4:00 pm.  This is the same day as the night fly so turnout should be good. Motion was passed.

Steve Higgins and Bryan have been talking about adding lights and a solar charger to the container.  A motion was made to spend no m0re that $500.00.  Motion passed

The Chalk center line has been added to the field.  Thanks Chet and Byran.

The need for a work party was brought up.  It is scheduled for September 19th to coincide with the gravel delivery. Mark will send out a e-mail.  

 

NEW BUSINESS:

Chet brought up the lighting planned for the container.  Nothing has been done as of yet.  Still on the task list to get done.

Steve Anderson put up a new windsock at the south end of the runway.

With the weather starting to turn and few windy days already its time to take down the awnings, maybe next Saturday?  Mentioned that there was not reason it could not come down after the meeting.  

Crawler track is coming along well. If there is anything that you wish to add run it by a board member but there should be no problem getting it approved.

There was a motion to set 2021 dues using the same numbers as in the past year. Motion was voted on and passed. Dues structure will stay the same as in 2020.

Don said his official goodbye as he is moving to Idaho at the end of the month. Thanks Don for all you have done for the club.

With COVID 19 still hanging around and wanting keep our social distancing a motion was made to cancel the 2020 Christmas party. Motion passed. Hopefully next year will be better.
