Wayne Deckard: The election of officers will be at the July 15 meeting. We will need a slate of candidates. If you are interested in running for an office or a board of directors position, please tell Michael Mossman. All club members will get the opportunity to vote by absentee ballot. We will not be able to conduct an election on the club web site.

Wayne Deckard went to NES to get the cost of a reflective tape stripe for the center of the runway. It will run about $1,900. Therefore, we will need volunteers to paint the runway.

Estimates to repair about 50 feet of runway damage: about $8,000. To recap the runway the will cost at least $65,000. Repairing the runway with powdered epoxy and our labor will run about $2,000. This was what we did before; it will last about five years.

Wayne will talk with Dan Montgomery on Monday, June 18, about the rumor alleging that he is interested in converting the airport to a residential air park.

All lights on the runway are now working.

The police department has been informed about the theft of the honor system concessions money.

Chuck and Pam Leucht are holding about $200 in excess cash from the concessions sales and will use it for future dog roasts.

Roy Dawes will put a mail slot in the office door for all rents and fuel checks, etc. When the paper cash in the concessions can exceeds $20, the money should go into an envelope and be placed through the mail slot. We will need to leave about $20 in the can in case someone needs to make change.

We have a new front gate and a new back gate.

Fred Ropke says that anyone can fly in to their 2,600-foot sod field. He will host a club meeting and tour of their military museum if we give him adequate notice.

OPEN HOUSE: All volunteers need to be here at 7-7:30. Pilots need to be ready for the 8 a.m. pilots' briefing.

Pam Leucht and Diane Dawes will be hosting a volunteers breakfast again.

Wayne Deckard went to the mayor, sheriff, police, fire department and informed them of the open house. Only the sheriff's department expressed an interest in it. The sheriff's department wants to use the airport, including volunteer pilots, would need to know the "alert time" to get a pilot ready in case they would be able to assist in an aerial search. The sheriff's department will be here for the open house.

Wayne Deckard: The mayor, police department and fire department expressed no interest in the open house. The First Responders Team fell apart and won't be here.

Wayne also went to the armory. The National Guard has some members who are interested in flight and will be here for the open house.

We have posters up all over town advertising the event. The grocery stores expressed the most interest.

There is a new Boy Scouts badge that requires take offs and landings, so we may have some Boy Scouts out this year.

Michael Mossman to call Maurice Hobson to see if he is OK and will be ready for the hog roast. If not, we will get it ordered from Gordon's Food Service.

We need to get a small tent for the shaved ice, popcorn, etc. Jessie Rogers and her friend will staff those concessions.

We will need to get some hand sanitizer to put by the porta potties.

Wayne Deckard Empty your trash cans, pick up trash around the field, etc., and throw it away. Small cans will ding props at the open house. Police your area and clean it up.

July meeting: Wayne Deckard will cook chicken wings.

Chuck Leucht motioned the adjourn; Wayne Deckard seconded. All in favor. Meeting adjourned.

Minutes respectfully submitted by Michael Mossman, Association Secretary
