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

Wayne Deckard: We had a powered parachute crash here today; the state police, FAA and sheriff's department were all here to investigate. Charles Westerfield and Chuck Leucht were here and saw the results, called 911, etc.

Wayne Deckard: This is the last meeting before our Young Eagles event here on June 12. There are too many variables to get done for a full open house so we will just have Young Eagles in the morning. Afterwards we will have a pitch-in lunch/dinner for family and friends; we will not be offering rides to the general public. We will not be buying fuel for the pilots. The club may buy some of the food. You can camp out if you want to.

Wayne Deckard: Chad Williams set up a meeting with our tax accountants. We won't be owing any taxes in arrears. Their fee for the work was less than the estimate. We should be finished and over with in 2-3 months.

Volunteers are needed to clean up the property.

Tom Rich: I will bring out a flatbed trailer for scrap steel.

Michael Mossman will make a sign and/or notices for the scrap steel pickup.

Don Deckard: Mark Hyten dumped the trash from all of the hangars.

Charles Westerfield: All runway lights are now OK.

Tom Rich: Roundup is now down in price. I will get some and spray along the runways and across the cracks, etc.

Wayne Deckard: We need a Bobcat and rotary broom again to clean off the runway.

Safety Meeting: Non-radio'd pilots need to make sure they fly a rigid pattern because radio'd pilots do not know where you are. Get a hand-held radio so you can listen to communications. Always fly standard patterns, and be sure to set your altimeter before every flight. Keep your eyes open. Remember, this is an old-time airport with a lot of airplanes that don't have radios.

Treasurer's Report: Account balances are $9,580.68, includes our collected fuel monies. We have not paid any taxes or our accountants yet.

Michael Mossman: I contacted three local asphalt companies to get estimates on repairing the damaged area in front of the fuel pumps, as well as the alley in front of the maintenance hangar. I have been advised that they don't want to pave over the broken concrete, as the cracks will come through in a year or less. One company told me that the damaged area in front of the fuel pumps will need to be repaired beyond the area of the damage so they will give us two estimates, and we can back out the liability of the person who will pay to fix it.

Wayne Deckard: I checked into us buying our fuel and then selling it to our members. We can't buy or store enough to get a price break. The airports that have really low prices are buying on a contract and are committing to maybe 20,000 or 30,000 gallons at a time, then taking a full load. We may still be able to partner with another local airport to split a load.

Michael Mossman moved to adjourn the meeting; Don Deckard seconded. All voted in favor of adjournment.
