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

The next meeting will be March 19, 2005 at 3 p.m., which is the third Saturday in March.

Wayne Deckard:

General announcements: The ceiling the Operations Building is now finished and the room looks much better. Chuck and Pam Leucht are coming in on Sunday evenings to clean up; help them keep the building clean.

We have a power supply for that can be used for discarded aircraft radio; Roy Dawes will try to find a used radio for a field UNICOM.

The association spent about $800 for electric materials for the hangars.

We needed a new motor for the rotating beacon.

The paper work is signed for the fuel agreement with the patrol line company. We have asked for 3,000 gallons of avgas to be delivered.

The club has been moving some airplanes around. We apologize if we put some in the wrong hangars. We are in the process of getting the field hangar maps updated.

There is a new IA on the field: Ron James is doing the annual on Dick Patterson's Piper Cub.

Soft field will be available in about 30 days due to improving winter weather. Gene Hollingsworth is building a new frame for the sod roller. We ask that you check the firmness of the field before using it. Please don't get it rutted up if the ground is soft.

Wayne has prepared a schematic for locating wiring and receptacles in the open hangars. Volunteers are needed to install electric boxes and run wires.

High winds expected in late winter and early spring a due; please check around the hangars for junk, scrap metal, etc., that could damage airplanes. Pick it up and get rid of it.

Dick Dawes' Cherokee 140 may be converted into a club airplane. Paul Handrock is thinking about doing the same with his Cessna 172. AOPA has forms for helping set up an aircraft ownership club.

Fuel will be accessed via a locked box. Patrol company decided that a credit card system would be too expensive. If you want fuel you will need a key. Get your name on the list for a fuel key. Fuel will be available on an honor system; we will charge you for the fuel. Delphi, open to the public, has sold fuel on an honor system for years and has never had a loss.

Chad Williams will investigate Pay Pal options for fuel.

Form Needed: Fueling date, Time, N-Number, Meter Reading before, Meter Reading after. Michael Mossman will build some forms.

Insurance says we can't retail fuel to the general public. We can help stranded pilots but that is on an individual basis. A member must buy the fuel on their own ticket for the pilot.

Wayne Deckard bought a 6-foot step ladder for fueling high wing airplanes. We need a new airplane grounding strap for fueling. Both fuel pumps are working.

Club will stock some oil for members. Send a list; we will buy a couple of cases.

Summer party "Affordable Flying" is scheduled for June 18.

Treasurer's Report: $2,825 in total revenues for the month; $2,765 expenses; $5,792 in account. One new member (Chuck Long) joined in February.

Roy Dawes moved to offer the maintenance hangar at no change to Paul Handrock while Roger Farris installs his engine; John Komnick seconded. All voted in favor. Motion passed.

Wayne Deckard: We bought a dump truck with a snow plow for maintaining the runway. Roy Dawes says that we need a cylinder for the truck to lift the snow plow.

We need to start mowing in March, both tractors are in bad shade. Ford needs a head gasket at the minimum. The Farmall needs PTO clutch; the tractor must be split to install a clutch, so that option was dismissed. Gene Hollingsworth recommended that we buy a Woods 80-inch mower. A Woods uses belts but runs smoother. Condition of deck isn't important, just that all working parts are in good shape.

This is the time of the year to work on trucks and tractors to get them running. Roy says to do one at a time. Ford should be the easiest, but consensus was to do the Farmall first.

Jack Snyder located a company that will sell us 20-pound CO2 fire extinguishers for about $250 each.

Don Brown is in the hospital. Michael Mossman volunteered to buy a get-well card and place it in the office for all to sign.

Michael Mossman will call Terry Culley about buying fire extinguishers.

The association decided to start with about 4 fire extinguishers now, then buy more in a few months. All in agreement if the fire extinguishers were $200 or less. All voted to buy four.

Mike Jackson has a friend who sells fire extinguishers and promised to ask him to get us a good price on a quantity deal.

We have some replacement wind socks, with a new lighted frame for installing on a hangar. We will need some volunteers to put one up. (The wind sock was installed after the meeting.)

Gene Hollingsworth motioned to adjourn; Roy Dawes seconded. Motion passed and the meeting as adjourned.

Minutes respectfully submitted by Michael Mossman, Association Secretary
