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

Dinner — John Saalwaechter brought two cases of Taco Bell items for the dinner.

After Christmas Party — Green St. Station in Brownsburg, on the third Saturday of the month, January 19, 2013. Cocktails from 6-6:30, followed by a brief meeting, dinner thereafter. We will order from the full menu this year with separate checks. The restaurant will have a band in the bar later that evening. No regular Tuesday meeting in January.

Donations — Tom Rich donated many used fluorescent light fixtures, which are now in the maintenance hangar. There are plenty for the whole property.

Utilities — Chad Williams reported that there seems to be a lot of lights on in the evenings and asked that members make an effort to get them turned off before leaving. Chad also led a discussion on programmable thermostats for the operations building, with a recommended budget of $50. Michael Mossman motioned to buy one; Dick Gurley seconded. All voted in favor. Earl Brosman volunteered to research the project.

Missing — The lock from the front gate is missing. Chad Williams will try to find a new combination lock.

Wind Sock — The wind sock for the north end of the runway is still on back order. Tom Rich will need to cancel the order and get one from another vendor.

Maintenance Hangar notes — Water in maintenance hangar is shut off for the winter. We will need new heat tape for the water system.

Winter Fly-Out Destinations — The restaurant at Putnam Co. Airport (Greencastle) has all-you-can-eat catfish for $9.99 and crab legs for $13.99 every Friday and Saturday.

Airport Equipment — The property owners have accepted the offer of $750 for the Farmall tractor and have approved using the funds for more appropriate property maintenance equipment. The dump truck will need the plow installed before the next snow.

Treasurer's Report — Dick Gurley reported that the club has $6,903.95 in checking and $5,020.58 in savings accounts. The club changed its checking account type to avoid service fees; we will need to keep a minimum $2,500 balance to avoid the fees.

Fuel Report — Dick Gurley will be using a new accounting system for recording fuel bills. One on-going issue is that checks for fuel have not matched the tickets. Gurley has created new accounts for members and will be able to carry over and under payments (credit balance). All payments will be posted to the name on the check, not to an aircraft. Gurley will post a sheet on the amounts owed. Member fuel recording procedures will remain the same.

Old Business — Chad Williams was going to buy carbon monoxide indicators, with more than 23 different kinds now available. Cheap kind is good for about one month; more expensive (about $5) is good for 18 months. After a hand count of members who will fly in the winter months, Chad determined that the club will order 12 of the $5 detectors.

Office Equipment — Earl Brosman has been searching for a low-cost commercial grade popcorn popper for the operations building. Chad Williams motioned for the club to spend up to $250 on a popper; Charles Westerfield seconded. All voted in favor. The club will need another monitor for the computer and is looking for a donation.

Hangar Reassignments — Darren Roberts moved from hangar 29 to hangar 26.

Runway Lights — As of Thanksgiving Day all runway lights are reported to be working.

Adjournment — Gene Hollingsworth motioned to adjourn, Charles Westerfield seconded. All voted in favor.
