It was commented by several people that Thom has done an exceptional
job and will be missed. He commented that after his return from his vacation he
will be available for help as necessary.
It was commented that we may have to increase the dues at some time.
Russell brought up that each person should make a contribution of $50 to $100 a
year and it would not be necessary to raise the dues and thus be more
competitive with other Chapters. Thom suggested that we do this at the point
that annual dues are due in October. Gary brought up that if we each just put
in our $10 per month at the meeting that this would serve the same purpose. Chuck brought up that the problem of
giving more money does not solve the basic problem of not having enough members
and that we really need to concentrate on getting more members. Chuck
recommended that we contact EAA to get a list of EAA members to contact about
our Chapter. Thom says that we won’t have a monetary problem through next
year if members pay their dues on time.
Break-ins: shed and property, gas and diesel losses.
Jim said that one tractor won’t run and it was when it went into
the shed. Duane said he would take a look at it when he can.
Thom said we need to install the two vents for the shed. Duane said we
need to do that right away.
Duane and Thom discussed fixing the shed door to reduce the ability to
tamper with it.
Jim said he would purchase the tent tops. There was a suggestion of
getting the canvas type. Gary suggested that Duane and Gary drive over to
Harbor Freight to get some of the tent tops.
Duane said he would bring diesel fuel tomorrow for the tractor and mow
Dennis offered to bring his ZTR over to help mow the grass if he can
get a trailer.
Gary brought in a guest, George, from South Port. Also, David and Will
came in with some radio controlled airplanes for possible purchase by the
Chapter. It was determined that the one that they brought was a little too
elaborate for just a static display but they have another one that would be
more appropriate for less money.
Duane brought up that Don Cookman has a mini
max that he wants to donate to the Chapter. Don would like a letter stating
that he has donated it to the Chapter. Thom said that we can’t give a
letter to him because we are not a 501C3 organization.
Wayne made a motion that everyone that could afford it bring in an
extra $50 to donate to the Chapter. The motion was seconded and approved.
The summer cookout was not decided on.
