Association President Wayne Deckard brought the meeting to order.

Wayne Deckard: We just saw an educational program on Runway and Taxiway encroachment. The FAA is now really cracking down on this. Pay attention here, and at other airports. There are new rules and regulations dealing with runway encroachment.

Wayne Deckard: The results of our membership poll regarding the skydiving operation are 2 YES (for them coming), 11 NO (against them coming) and 8 DON'T CARE. Comments: Of the "No"s there were several that could go the other way if certains concerns were met: legalities, paperwork in order, etc. No gentlemen's agreement on operation, must get all agreements in writing.

Phil Chappell: I don't want to sink a bunch of money into facilities then find out we have to go to court.

Wayne Deckard: What we don't want to happen is have skydiving slow down our operation. We don't want to let our club and GA people dwindle. Traditionally, skydiving causes GA to dwindle.

Mike Jackson questioned Phil Chappell on the fatality at his Sky Dive San Marcos operation in 2001. Chappell says the FAA found his operation to not be at fault. Mike Jackson also presented some investigation work he did on Rob and Nicole Chappell, who have two lawsuits pending against them. Nicole Chappell had notarized Phil Chappell's land contract with Don Brown, and Rob Chappell is Phil Chappell's putative business partner. After some discussion and argument Chappell stormed out of the meeting, saying that he was already planning on buying the airport, and was going to proceed with the purchase, and that he was going to sue the club collectively and each member singularly.

Wayne Deckard: Roy Dawes has been working on the dump truck, equipping it with new controls. Anyone can run it now. Get with him to learn how to operate it. Painting the truck has been postponed until spring. We'll need to get a strobe to put on it so that no one lands on it when plowing the runway.

Roy Dawes: I bought new hoses, pump, controls, alternators, etc., for the dump truck.

No Treasurer's Report due to Chad Williams being out of town for the weekend. If paying rent give the check to Wayne Deckard.

Important Note: Get your fuel bill paid by year end so we can close our books.

South fuel pump is empty but about 1,300 gallons are available from the north pump. We won't need to order fuel until spring because there is less flying done in the winter.

Next Affordable Flying event will be June 17th.

Election of officers will be at the July meeting.

Michael Mossman: Most people liked the party but the room was pretty tight. We had only one month to get everything ready, including booking a room, and it's hard to find some place big enough for all of us just before Christmas. Next year we should get started on it a few months earlier.

At this point Phil Chappell came back to the meeting. The discussion about the jump operation continued in a civil fashion; no official resolution was reached.

At this point Michael Mossman motioned to adjourn; Chuck Long seconded. All voted in favor to adjourn, and the meeting was concluded.

Minutes respectfully submitted by Michael Mossman, Association Secretary
