Chad Williams brought the meeting to order at approximately 6:00 p.m.

New Tenant — Jason Jackson from Danville IN, has a Cessna 150. Jason is an A&P/IA.

Volunteer Recognition — Chad Williams recognized John Saalwaechter for contributing to the restrooms, and also Earl Brosman, Darren Roberts and others for work on the operations building. Chuck Leucht was also recognized for his work in setting the flag pole.

Treasurer's Report — As of the meeting date the club has $3,209.68 in the checking account and $5,026.19 in the savings account. All bills have been paid, including the annual liability insurance premium.

Fuel Report — Chad Williams reported that the club is currently out of auto fuel. In the past we would not have filled the tank until spring but this year we have ordered a new load of auto fuel. The fuel will be available for aircraft, plow truck, snow blowers and for grass mowing (if the season is not over). The auto fuel will come from the co-op and will be alcohol-free. Price and octane will be posted after delivery.

Rodent Control — Earl Brosman bought 100 mouse traps for the airport, plus some additional equipment for safely positioning mouse poison (the poison boxes are safe for children and pets and will require a key to open). Earl reports that mice travel only about 20 feet from their nest and will collect enough food for their life cycle. They generally travel along walls, so the best position for a trap or poison is along a wall. Earl also reported that the club will need to clear the grass along the hangars, which will inhibit mice from running towards them.

Trash Pickup — For two years the club has gone to an every-other-week trash pickup to save money. If the dumpster is full and we need an additional pickup, club members can call the 800 number for an extra pickup.

Hangar Availability — Roy Dawes has sold his Piper Aztec and expects it to be moved from the field within the month. He does not have a plan to bring in another aircraft so the hangar will be available. It is suitable for larger singles or a small twin.

Air Compressor — The club elected to buy Roy Dawes' air compressor for $600, which was credited towards his account. Chad Williams motioned to re-wire the compressor for an amount not to exceed $200; Darren Roberts seconded. All voted in favor. Charles Westerfield recommended re-positioning the compressor near the electrical panel (by the water pump) to save money on wiring. The compressor plumbing will need to be capped on the old end and a new fitting added to the new end. Earl Brosman has a small compressor that can be used if someone needs to fill up a tire and doesn't want to start up the larger compressor.

Snow Blower — John Snyder offered to sell shi snow blower to the club for $200. It is a two-stage blower with a 110-volt electric start. It will clear around hangars and areas where the plow trucks are not able to get close. Dick Gurley motioned to buy the snow blower; Earl Brosman seconded. All voted in favor.

Wind Sock — Tom Rich ordered a new wind sock for the north end of the runway; it has not arrived yet.

Deer Control — Some members have had encounters with deer on the field. Chad Williams will talk to the property owners about allowing members to hunt deer on the property. The club will post a map of permitting hunting areas.

Farmall Tractor — John Saalwaechter has a cousin that would like to buy the Farmall/International tractor. It is currently running, however, some of the equipment does not work. The tractor currently belongs to the property owners. The general discussion was that the proceeds from the sale would be used for some other equipment that might be more useful to the club, like perhaps a bush hog, etc. Chad Williams will bring this up during his next meeting with the property owners.

Pitch-In — Earl Brosman bought some sausages, John Saalwaecther brought some White Castle hamburgers and Michael Mossman brought some chips for the pitch-in. Chad Williams would like to set up a schedule for other members to contribute to the meeting dinners.

Adjournment: Dick Gurley motioned to adjourn; Charles Westerfield seconded. All voted in favor.
