Wayne Deckard: We have a sign-up sheet for the Lee Bottom Field fly out

Roy Dawes: The bus is going on Friday afternoon; we can carry baggage

Chad Williams: Lee Bottom field had a notice about requesting shortened radio calls. See their web site for details.

Michael Mossman: We left town at about 4 last year, which gave us maybe an hour to get our tents up before it started getting dark along the hill. Expect that the crowd will be much bigger this year. We need to leave earlier if we all want to get a spot and camp together.

The members decided to depart 6I4 at 2 p.m. EDT.

Wayne Deckard: We have been working on our proposal to turn the airport over to the city of Lebanon; there is nothing new to report since the last meeting.

Roy Dawes: Generations restaurant could only host the Christmas party on a Sunday. It would have to be a buffet and no alcohol could be served.

Wayne Deckard: get a price on how much per head.

Jim Kouns: I am a member of the Elks Club and will check to see if we can hold the party there.

The members voited to hold the Christmas party on the third Saturday in January in order to be a better place.

Wayne Deckard: Our hot dog cookout is on October 18. Chuck and Pam Leucht will get the hay bales. We will need firewood, which is behind the rocks. Bring a covered dish; club will supply hot dogs and buns.

Dog Roast attendance will be limited to members and invited guests.

Chad Williams: Financial Report: $5,693.82 in account. We have one member that hasn't paid rent all year.

Chad Williams: Indiana Department of Environmental Management wants reports from the Veeder-Root system. We spent $208 to reprogram it, determined that the machine has a bad circuit or bad probes. No service or probes available anymore. I contacted department, have not had calls returned. It will cost roughly $3,000 for a working system. Could also look at an above ground tanker. As an alternative, we could have an independent outfit test at $300 per tank per month.

John Snyder: I spent $23,000 to get rid of contaminated fuel at my filling station.

Roy Dawes: Brentco has 3,000 and 6,000 gallon tanks in Texas; we would need to pay to get them here.

Wayne Deckard: Let's let this lay for a while since Chad made the call.

Roy Dawes: They said they have to probe the ground and check the corrosion rods.

Don Deckard: Most auctions have gas truck available.

Kristen Henke: I have a friend in Pennsylvania with an airport that is getting rid of the fuel system and will ask if it is for sale.

John Snyder: AOPA needs an airport watchdog. Roy Dawes is currently listed as the contact.

Wayne Deckard: The small dumpster is now up by the operations building. Chad Williams needs to contact the other trash company and get their dumpster moved. Their trucks are too heavy for the tarmac and are tearing it up.

Wayne Deckard: If you are looking for cheap fuel, it is here. Prices up to $6 a gallon across the country.

Gene Hollingsworth motioned to adjourn, Chuck Leucht seconded. All in favor.

Minutes respectfully submitted by Michael Mossman, Association Secretary
