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

Fuel Report — Chad Williams transferred about 1,000 gallons of avgas from the north tank to the south tank. The club has about 1,600 gallons of fuel on site.

Equipment Maintenance — The wind sock has been down for a few weeks. Earl Brosman, Darren Roberts and Chad Williams fixed it when the weather was favorable.

Weather Station — The club has a new weather station that reports to Airport weather is available in near-real time on the internet or via smart phone. An abbreviated version of the local weather is also available via a web link on the club's website. For information on setting up a smart phone for weather members should contact Earl Brosman. Members can also download weather access apps for their smart phones from the iStore and the Android stores.

New Hangar Status — No new news on the new hangar. The property owner has pledged to meet with Chad Williams in the spring to work out the details for renting and club operation. If any members are interested in renting a space in the new hangar they should contact the property owner. Chad Williams will provide a phone number.

Maintenance Hangar — Gene Hollingsworth and Earl Brosman installed the old operations building furnace in the maintenance hangar. The fuel tank has propane; Gene estimates that it will cost about $3.00 per hour to run the furnace. If members want to use the furnace they will need to record their fuel usage. Since the furnace is rigged to heat either the maintenance hangar or Michael Mossman's hangar, anyone using it will need to set the furnace for the proper room. A set of instructions will be posted near the furnace. Currently, Jay Schaumberg's Piper Lance is in the maintenance hangar. If any club member needs to use the maintenance hangar they will need to coordinate moving the aircraft with Jay.

Office Supplies — Chad Williams asked that members bring some pens for the office.

Treasurer's Report — Checking account $5,608, Savings account $9,031, Fuel account $3,996. All bills are paid to date. Dick Gurley is not yet ready to present a new budget to the club due to the unknown ramifications of the new hangar. Dick reports that the club has already used as many gallons of propane this year as all of last year, and the winter has been milder. Last year the club ran very clsoe to budget except for propane costs and plow truck repair.

Operations Building — Earl Brosman has set the thermostat to 50 degrees F for fuel conservation. The temperature can be overridden when someone is in the office, but if the thermostat is untouched for six hours it will revert to 50 degrees. Members are asked to return the thermostat to 50 degrees when leaving the office and turn off the lights.

Plow Truck — The brakes are out on the plow truck. Chad Williams has asked Roy Dawes to give an estimate of getting the brakes fixed.

Abandoned Aircraft Status - Jay Schaumberg reported that the club has filed a mechanics lien on the wrecked Cessna 310 that is currently stored on the ramp. The owner has been in arrears for rent for more than a year. If we can get a judgment the aircraft will be sold at auction. If the proceeds are more than the rents due and the costs of the suit the balance will be returned to the aircraft owner.

Oshkosh Planning — Earl Brosman will be flying his Ercoupe to AirVenture 2016 this year for the 75th anniversary of the Ercoupe. Earl plans on bringing his camper to Oshkosh and will need for someone to drive it.

Mowing — Earl Brosman has volunteered to be the mowing coordinator again this year. Michael Mossman will generate a mowing sign-up sheet.

BCAA Hats - John Saalwaecther ordered 40 embroidered hats from a vendor in Thorntown. Each member will get one hat for free and can buy more from the club. If a member wants a specialty hat the vendor will make one with any design that you want. The BCAA license plates came from Mount's Signs in Lebanon and cost $3.00 each.

Property Improvements — In the spring the property owner will move the entrance and driveway to pass between the operations building and the fuel pumps. The new drive will be paved. He will also build a parking area along the road so that guests won't have to drive through the property. When the ramp thaws out the property owner will have the ramp swept to clear the rocks from the new hangar construction.

Upcoming Repairs — Earl Brosman reports that the screws on the aluminum neutral wires between the buildings will need to be re-tightened. Volunteers will need to shut off the power on the utility pole before tightening the screws.

Adjournment — Steve McClure motioned to adjourn; Dick Gurley seconded. The meeting was adjourned.
