President's Message

Brett has re-vamped the website. There is more information about the club on there, so be sure to refer people to the website when they inquire about the club.

We are in that slow time of year again, where there isn't much in the way of planned activities. The elections are coming up, so bear in mind any nominations you want to make. There are still a lot of improvements to be made at the field, so be sure to attend meetings to keep up to pace on the plans, and schedule for work days.

See you at the next meeting.

Ron Bachman - President


Next Meetings:

Wednesday, October 13th, 2004 at 7:00pm
Location: Tex's Fish Camp - please arrive between 6:00 & 6:30 if you plan to eat.

Notes from the last meeting. 

Discussion was heard on the following subjects:

  1. Changing the clubs Tax ID to reflect the name change
  2. People flying airplanes in a private field close to the club
  3. The election of officers for 2005
  4. Fixing the broken gate
  5. Making new frequency pins

Apparently there is a small group of people using a field close to the convenience store at the intersection of freezer locker rd and mt hermon rd. If you see these people flying on your way to the field, please be polite and stop to check frequencies. We need to come up with a plan for frequency control if this becomes a problem

The election of officers for 2005 will be held at the December meeting. Nominations will be received at any meeting prior to the elections.

The gate was still broken as of the last meeting. The county maintenance people have said that they will fix the gate, but if it is not fixed soon we will have to do it ourselves.
