GENERAL MEETING NOTES - November 11, 2017

Jerry Houser

The general membership meeting was called to order at 10:08 AM. Board Members present were Dean Brown - Vice president, Julian Schock - Treasurer, Jeff Lastofka - Director, and Jerry Houser - Secretary. There were a total of 15 club members present.

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

Membership Report:
We have a total of 75 members. This includes 66 regular members, 1 associate member, and 8 junior members. Our new member is Rodney Peterson.

Field Maintenance Report:
-Mario has donated paint for the repainting of the benches.
-John Albu suggested and volunteered to donate a sign with our new club logo on it to replace the "old logoed" sign at the main entry gate.

Field Safety Report:
Continue to watch for rattlesnakes. On November 5th one was seen in the field north of the runway.

Old Business:

New Business:
-Our runway continues to sink and crack. At some point in the future, it will need to be completely replaced at an estimated cost of 20K. We probably need to start building the treasury in preparation for it and may consider going back to the $60 initiation fee and/or a slight increase in dues starting in 2019. Discussion will continue at future meetings.
-2018 board members: While all positions were "open", Jerry & Julian said they were willing to continue in their present positions of secretary & treasurer for 2018. No one else was nominated or volunteered for these two positions. Jon is stepping down as president and Dean volunteered to run for that position for 2018. There were no other nominations or volunteers for president. Rick Klaeser was nominated for Vice-president and Jon Schleif was nominated for Director with no other nominations or volunteers for either of those positions. Since there were no other nominations or volunteers for any of the board positions, there is no need for an election at the December meeting and the new officers will officially begin to serve in 2018.
-Our club safety officer, Doc Buck, is resigning effective the end of 2017. Mario Mancusi has volunteered to serve in this position for 2018. We thank Doc Buck for his service to the club.
-It was decided (by unanimous vote of the members present) that our field will become an all electric field but that CURRENT members may continue to fly their CURRENT glow aircraft (which we believe to be about 4 members who seldom fly them).
-Consideration was given to extending the flying hours to 5 pm during DST. This extension was voted down by the members present.

The meeting was adjourned at 10:27 AM.
