Wayne Deckard opened the meeting at approximately 3 p.m.

Steve McClure made a large bowl of chili and crackers for those present. Wayne Deckard also made grilled cheese sandwiches.

Wayne announced that the volunteer sign up board is installed, and that lights are on the hangars. The last two rows of hangars now have their motion sensor lights.

All bills to date have been paid.

The Operations Building needs fuel (propane) for heat; we will order some this week.

With winter coming tenants are advised to check their tie down ropes so that their airplanes are secured.

The field will probably need to be mowed one more time before winter. Gene Hollingsworth recommended that the grass runway not be mowed but that the rest of the grass be mowed.

The main gate has a combination lock. The combination is 1228, Deckard asked that the person out check the gate and office door before leaving.

Trash pickup is Wednesday morning; do not lock the gate Tuesday evening. The trash people will not unlock the gate, nor will they relock it after trash pickup.

Michael Mossman volunteered to check the gate on the way to work on Wednesday mornings (this may not work out if the trash pickup is later than 7:30 a.m.).

Andy henderson is excited about the property; he seems happy with the progress the association has made keeping the place respectable.

Jack Snyder: Have we notified the state thatwe have an externally accessable phone?

Wayne Deckard: No, but before we do we need to check the lights and be sure that we are ready for the night time rating.

Larry Poe: Three runway lights need to be fixed.

Jack Snyder volunteered to drive down the runway and check for unworking lights.

Roy Dawes reported that he would rig the Operations Building door lock so that we can't be locked out.

Treasurer's Report: $2,900 in revenue. Expenses: lease, $1425; insurance $327; phone $52; electric $205; Department of Environment $33. Other miscellaneous expenses: Rob Pickering, parts; and other miscellaneous small expenses. $4,232 in checking account.

This month the association lost two tenants. Tim Harmon sold his ultralight and Pat Richardson moved his airplane to Frankfort when a hangar vacancy opened.

Wayne Deckard: Rent is not due until the 25th of the month.

Steve McClure moved to prorate rents when someone moves out early. Roy Dawes seconded; All voted in favor except Dick Dawes, who opposed. Motion passed.

Wayne asked that Pat Richardson's October rent now be refunded by dividing his rent by 30 then multiplying by the number of days that he occupied the hangar.

Larry Poe: If someone leaves and comes back, are they still members? The general consensus is that the Membership Fee is a one-time fee, not annual dues, so if they leave they remain a member even though they are not a current tenant.

Steve McClure: If someone comes to the association they must pay the $100 fee.

Wayne Deckard: If a club wants to come in how many votes do they get? He suggested renting them hangars with no vote.

New Business:

Wayne Deckard mentioned that several people wanted to store boats on the property in unocupied hangars, for a fee. Do we want to rent hangars for that purpose? Our insurance will allow it. There was some discussion about risk of damage caused by persons not familiar with aircraft.

Steve McClure motioned to leave hangar space to aircraft only; Larry Poe seconded. All voted in favor. Motion passed.

Wayne Deckard asked that tenants be congenial when storing boats, cars, and other personal belonging in our hangars. Hangars can be crowded, and most hangars have common space that needs to be kept open.

Wayne Deckard: Outside tiedown is not recommended by our insurance company. We can ask for volunteer donations from transient aircraft.

Michael Mossman will make a sign asking for donations.

Wayne Deckard: The outside phone is installed and working.

Gene Hollingsworth: Tractors have anti-freeze but the big tractor has only water in the radiator, no anti-freeze. There is water in the transmission.

Wayne Deckard: The fuel tank on the cartis available for any member to use. Be sure to completely empty it as it get used for both leaded avgas and mogas for mowers and airplanes.

Gene Hollingsworth put trash cans in the hangars.

Wayne Deckard: Do we want to have a Christmas party? If someone is interested in having a party they can volunteer to organize one.

Roy Dawes will get some old radios working for an Operations Building unicom.

We have had some donated books for the Operations Building. Michael Mossman will make a sign-in loan sheet.

Larry Poe motioned to adjourn; Jack Snyder seconded. All voted to adjourn.

Minutes respectfully submitted by Michael Mossman, Association Secretary
