From The Oval Office

With regard to the new flying site, we had quite a lot of activity in the last month. A group of members visited the site and 3 people flew from there for the first time. At the following emergency meeting, the club decided to change the name to Caldwell Aero Modelers, and applied for an additional insurance certificate.

There will be quite a lot of work to do to prepare the new site. I invite everyone to participate in the upcoming work we have the opportunity to make this a great flying site.

I would also like to thank everyone who attended the emergency meeting. We had a very important decision to make, and having everyone there helped out the decision making process.

See you at the next meeting.

Ron Bachman - President


Next Meeting:
Wednesday, October 8th, 2003 at 7:00pm
Location: Tex's Fish Camp - please arrive between 6:00 & 6:30 if you plan to eat.

Notes from the last regular meeting. 

Bliss had taken a frequency scanner to the landfill, and everything checked out ok.

It was decided to visit the landfill on Sept 13th, for the purpose of surveying, and trying to mow a runway.

The website name will expire in October. We should be prepared to renew this name, or purchase another if the club name is changed

Notes from the emergency meeting. 

Bliss reported that the Caldwell Co Commisioners had agreed for us to use the landfill for two years with an option on a further 3 years.

The club's name was changed from "Hildebran R/C Aero Modelers" to "Caldwell Aero Modelers"

It was decided to apply for additional insurance for the landfill site.

A work day to clean up the Hildebran field was planned for Saturday October 11th at 9:00am.
