The meeting was brought to order by club President Wayne Deckard at approximately 3 p.m.

Wayne Deckard: We've had two member deaths this week, John Kochmer and Bob Delp's wife. People will be here to look at Kochmer's airplane. Try to keep the gawkers away from it. Delp is also not able to fly. We don't know if he will sell it or keep it for his family.

Christmas Party: Ponderosa or El Jaripeo, or catered at another site.

Chad Williams: Checking account as about $5,000, but $2,000 of that is for fuel. Last year we spent $800-900 for the Christmas party. Chad recommended that we keep it within that range.

The club voted all in favor that we have the party at El Jaripeo; none opposed. The club will pay for entree at $12 or less and non-alcoholic drink. The party will start at 6:30. We will have a short business meeting at the party.

Chuck Leucht: Can we draw names for gifts?

Chad Williams: I motion that we invite Jim Kouns as a volunteer.

Wayne Deckard: December, January and February are right around the corner. Check ropes for any dry rot, check your rope anchors, chocks, etc. Check air pressure, we don't want any blow-outs on landings.

Chuck and Pam Leucht going to Haiti on a missionary trip.

Shorty Graves at Crown Point assisted living center, room 207. Getting hygeine care, has son with custody over him.

Wayne Deckard: We need volunteers to drain water lines in the maintenance hangar. You will need to get into the box if you want to wash your airplane, then you'll have to drain the hoses when you are finished. Check the lights on the runway; it's getting dark earlier. Do not turn the operations building thermostat over 75 degrees. If you leave in the evening turn it down to 50 degrees.

New Member: Deckard's Navion got sold. The buyer is looking for a primary instructor.

Roy Dawes is offering the Piper Colt for tailwheel sign-offs.

Wayne Deckard: We have a new mayor in Lebanon. Wayne will contact and finesse him.

Chad Williams: Confusion over the lease. We do have one more year on the lease. Airport sale price went up a million dollars.

Erick Roldan: Few meetings back there was talk of a business plan for a SBA loan. Are we still pursuing it?

Wayne Deckard: With new mayor and council we could save us a lot of money by them developing the airport. If we were to buy it we'd have to charge several thousand dollars a month hangar rent just to pay the interest then we'd all be gone. They may still have some interest in pursuing the tax write-offs with the property donation.

Michael Mossman to write a letter to the new mayor and invite him to meet with Wayne.

Roy Dawes motioned to close the meeting; Wayne Deckard seconded. Meeting adjourned.

Minutes respectfully submitted by Michael Mossman, Association Secretary
