GENERAL MEETING NOTES - September 9, 2017

Jerry Houser

The general membership meeting was called to order at 10:04 AM. Board Members present were Jon Schleif - President, Julian Schock - Treasurer, Jeff Lastofka - Director, and Jerry Houser - Secretary. There were a total of 14 club members present.

Treasurer's Report:
Julian presented the treasurers report which was accepted.

Membership Report:
We have a total of 74 members. This includes 65 regular members, 1 associate member, and 8 junior members. New members Include Jim McFaul and Robert Doebler.

Field Maintenance Report:
-Thanks to Julian who made repairs to cracks in our runway. The repair seems to be holding up well.

Field Safety Report:
Pilots have been doing a getter job with "callouts" when landing and when on the runway. Thank you.

Old Business:
-Cigarette butts are still being found on the field as well as a beer can in the trash.
-We plan to have both a bomb drop and a pylon race at the October 14th picnic/flying event. Specific details will be given prior to each event but for planning purposes the location of the bomb will be considered where it first touches and any type of bomb may be used as long as it is lightweight and does not pose a hazard should it go way off target and strike someone. Method of release and airplane attitude are at the pilots discretion as long as it does not pose a safety risk. No more than one bomb may be released in a single pass. The pylon race must be flown with a 100% foam airplane and no more than a 3S battery. Each participant must have a spotter during the contest. The bottom portion of the pylons are been placed in the field but will be moved farther to the north and farther apart prior to the event. They will also be extended in height and markings placed on the poles so they will be easier to see.
-Dick Zimmer has arranged for door prizes and contest prizes from Hobby Town and Hitec.

New Business:
Felicita Vida Senior Living has asked if they can bring some of their residents to the field for a visit. Jon will contact them to see if October 7th would work for them.

The meeting was adjourned at 10:14 AM.
