Treasurer's Report: Chad Williams: We have $7,784.07 in account. All bills paid to date. Some of our money in the bank is for fuel. Our property rent will be due again for April.

Wayne Deckard: Our fly-in committee to meet Saturday after the club's business meeting.

We have some maintenance to do this spring. We need to cap the runway with asphalt or dig up and replace some concrete. We need estimates for cap or repair. We need these estimates for fund raising and to solicit donations. We will need a two-man committee for donations. We should look toward flying organizations to help fund the runway. Wayne motioned to solicit donations; Roy Dawes seconded, all voted in favor. Michael Mossman will make a flyer.

Chad Williams: The Department of Transportation will do a safety inspection in March. Charles Westerfield, Mike Jackson and Chad Williams fixed the downed runway lights. The state may have already come in to do the inspection.

Erick Roldan: Put in the letter that the airport is used for emergency training.

Wayne Deckard: IFR classes going OK with decent turnouts.

Chad Williams: New official pilot: Gary Rogers got his certificate a couple of weeks ago; several of us came out to toast his new certificate.

Wayne Deckard: Maurice Hobson is looking for one 14-to-16-year-old kid to go to Oshkosh. His EAA chapter is again sponsoring someone to go. Last year they sent Zach Rogers. If someone would like to nominate a kid please contact Maurice.

Roy Dawes: Does the Hoosier Flyers club still use the facilities? If so, would they be willing to help us with a fundraiser?

Chad Williams: I motion to get a load of gravel for the drive. Larry Rogers has offered to provide a truck and labor. Chuck Leucht seconded; all voted in favor.

Michael Mossman: I am still looking for someone to volunteer for the fly-outs committee. We have several fun places to go this year. The folks up at Timberhouse have offered to host us for a fly-in during the good weather. I would like to take them up on it.

Wayne Deckard: We need to get a load of concrete and frame in the sidewalks, and repair the concrete at the front of the maintenance hangar.

When we repair the runway we will need to call flight service to shut down the runway. We can make X's marking off the closed runway with sand bags.

Chad Williams: Do we want to establish a second savings account for keeping runway donations (airport improvement funds)?

Chad Williams: Michael Mossman and I have had contact with Paul Handrock, who is interested in getting his airplane to flying status or selling it. He still would like to get it up to rental standards but doesn't have the money to do it.

Wayne Deckard: I am interested in buying into Handrock's airplane to build a separate club IFR airplane.

The Affordable Flying committee postponed their meeting until Tuesday, March 20, 2007, 5:00 p.m.

John Snyder motioned to close the meeting; Chad Williams seconded. All voted in favor. The meeting was concluded.

Minutes respectfully submitted by Michael Mossman, Association Secretary
