Bylaws Discussion: Wayne Deckard moderated a brief discussion of several provisions of the proposed bylaws, with concerns expressed over the bonds, and the potential liability of officers and directors.

Indy Air Race: Scheduled for Saturday, August 13, starting and ending at Indianapolis Executive Airport. The far north corner of the buildings at Boone County Airport will be a pylon; volunteers are needed as spotters. The event will be the first in Indiana, and will have different classes, handicaps, etc. No prize money, just trophies. EAA Chapter 1311 will sponsor the breakfast and lunch.

Blacktop Ramp Repair: No volunteers have signed up as yet for the repair and/or replacement of the ramp blacktop. The only times that the work can be done is on weekday or on a Saturday morning, due to asphalt delivery. The club will need four to six people to do the work. We will need a week's notice before the repair can be started so that we can get reservations on the equipment.

Oshkosh: Earl Brosman may take his motorhome to Oshkosh and is looking for persons to share the expenses and driving. The motorhome can comfortably accomodate 3 persons, and up 6 six if they are really close. The motorhome can tow a car; Earl has one to bring. One member mentioned that Roy Dawes planned on taking the bus but it is currently stuck in mud. If anyone is interested in riding with Earl or Roy they should contact them directly.

Member Death: Charles Rice, who owned a Cherokee 180, died on Memorial Day. His estate, which is being handled by his nephew, is trying to sell the airplane. It is well equipped but is currently out of annual.

Treasurer's Report: Chad Williams reported by email that the club has $3,774.85 in the checking account and $5,022.62 in savings.

John Saalwaechter seconded the motion; all votes were in favor; none opposed. John Saalwaecther, Michael Mossman and Wayne Deckard will head up a planning committee. John Saalwaechter mentioned that in other clubs they had success by partnering with churches and charitable groups for Young Eagles kids.

Runway Inspection: The Indiana Department of Transportation will conduct a runway inspection before the end of July.

It was mentioned that Steve McClure had recently fixed some runway lights.

Safety Discussion: John Saalwaecther commented that he recently went to a Bonanza event, where they did voluntary aircraft checks with the pilots and their mechanics, looking for squawks. He said that it was a good walk-around sessions. Wayne Deckard recommended that anyone who owns an airplane directly participate in their annual.
