Wayne Deckard brought the meeting to order at 3:00 p.m.

Bruce Thompson: Bought a Mini-Max that is nearly complete and will move it to the field.

Wayne Deckard: Check planes owned by people that don't come out. Check for ropes, tiedowns, etc. Empty trash barrels before it gets cold, then tie them down

Chad Williams: We checked the runway lights and fixed the ones that didn't work. For turning on the runway lights at night, 5 clicks on your mic button will do it.

Jack Snyder will try to get pedestals for lights, 2-3 are bad, also need clear globes (5-6). He will get 5 complete clear units.

Wayne Deckard: With winter near and cold flying weather, check your exhaust systems and carbon monoxide levels. Be sure that you have a fresh CO detector in your airplane. If you don't have one, we still have a few left from the party last year.

CHRISTMAS PARTY: Wayne will try to schedule Flapjacks for Saturday, December 16. Location is currently TBA, Michael Mossman will also check Pumpernickels at the hotel across from the Flying J truck stop.

Snow Removal - Need a sign up list with phone numbers. Each volunteer must do a practice session to learn how to start and operate the dump truck.

Wayne Deckard: Do we want to buy jackets with club insignias? Wayne will look into the costs. Do we need a new logo? If you have any ideas, turn them in to Michael Mossman.

OLD BUSINESS: Chad Williams fixed the antenna lead wire for the comm radio. When broadcasting, hold the mic close to your mouth just like when in an aircraft. The mic is proximity sensitive.

TREASURER'S REPORT: $8,661.26. Chad estimates that we will owe about $4-5,000 for fuel.

Wayne Deckard: We have 1,500 gallons in the tanks, about half is ours. Fuel price is still $3.50 per gallon. When Wayne went to Nevada, the cheapest fuel he found en route was about $4.00 per gallon.

Wayne Deckard: The Maintenance Hangar needs brooms, shovels, etc. We have new squeegees. We will need more floor-dry, solvent, sand and nozzle for blaster, etc.

Michael Mossman provided copies of the tentative maintenance hangar rules. After discussion, Chad Williams motioned to accept the rules as written, Chuck Leucht seconded, all voted in favor. Motion passed.

Wayne Deckard: Make a sign with an abbreviated version of the rules to post in the hangar, also make a calendar with clear vinyl that can be written on with a wax pencil for scheduling.

Mark Hyten built an enclosure around the well pump. The pump and plumbing has heat tape, will only need some insulation.

Roy Dawes will cut up the old snow plow, to be used for ballast in the dump truck.

Michael Mossman: We talked before about making some roll-up hangar doors. If we could enclose the hangars we would bring in more active tenants.

Wayne Deckard: Send out a survey to members about enclosing the hangars with roll-up doors.

Chad Williams motioned to adjourn, Wayne Deckard seconded, all voted in favor to adjourn.

Minutes respectfully submitted by Michael Mossman, Association Secretary
