Club President Chad Williams brought the meeting to order at 6:01 p.m.

Treasurer's Report — Checking Account balance is $5,645.91, Savings Account balance is $3,932.13, and Fuel Savings Account balance is $2,182.75. The club just bought fuel last month. To date the club is $5,246 under budget for rent but only $4,641 behind on cash flow. We are running about $465 behind monthly on cash. Swing Wing Aviation donated $1,000 to the club for the use of the airport during crop dusting season; the revenue will show up on the November budget report. Previously this year the club received $500 from another crop duster earlier in the summer. The club just filed its tax report; we owed zero dollars in taxes as a non-profit. We are carrying a loss forward.

Lawsuit Status — The Cessna 310 has reached its final status; the sheriff has seized the aircraft. The club will pay the sheriff $200, who will then post a date for the public auction. All club members will be notified by email and a posting in the operations building of the sale. The club will start the collections process on the Piper Aztec next; which has some valuable equipment and two good engines.

Fuel Report — The auto fuel tank has a leak and the club lost a lot of mower gas. The fuel supplier will no longer fill an above-ground tank due to liability issues. We don't need auto fuel for the winter but may need some for plowing or for members who use auto fuel in their aircraft. Fuel for the snow plowing is provided under contract with separate equipment. The fuel supplier will bring out new equipment in the spring, or earlier if we ask for it.

Aviation Fuel Report — Chad Williams disassembled a fuel pump to re-mark the tenths of a gallon numbers on the meter. The gallons are clearly visible and the main meters are correct. Fuel users should record the numbers from the big gauge. When buying fuel please write down and pay for the fuel from the 1-inch usage numbers.

New Hangar Report — The asphalt is complete in front of the new hangar; the units are ready to move into. The property owner has secured four other tenants so it is technically full. Rents will be $200 per month plus an airport access surcharge for the club. New hangar tenants will have some one-time expenses for building walls, etc.

Outside Aircraft Storage — Dennis Paradise motioned that the club allow no further outdoor aircraft storage, with the exception of the aircraft currently on the field, which are grandfathered. Permission will be given to transient aircraft for a reasonable short time parking. Gene Hollingsworth seconded the motion. All votes were in favor, none opposed.

Old Hangar Availability — The club current has four open-air hangar spaces available. A notice of availability will be posted in the event that members would like to move to an open position. Chad Williams will also go to Barnstormers and advertise for new members to see if we can fill up our membership.

Airport Equipment Report — Earl Brosman and Don Deckard spent many hours this past month fixing the runway lights. A red runway light on the south end needs to be repaired or replaced. A volunteer is needed to dig to wind the wire, as it was cut off by a mower. The furnace in the maintenance hangar needs to be repaired. Last year the furnace would run for five minutes then quit. Chad Williams recommended that the club call Jason Wright to service it.

Airport Facilities — Jay Schaumberg reported that the airport owner wants the club to get rid of the dumpster. The club discussed various options for reducing trash removal cost. No action was taken but the club suggested building a privacy fence around the dumpster area, which could also enclose the operations building propane tank and air conditioning unit.

Volunteers Needed — Volunteers are needed to trim grass from the cracks on the runway, and to blow loose gravel and stones from the runway.

Holiday Party — The traditional date for the after-Christmas Holiday Party has been on the third Saturday of January. For the past several years the club has gone to Green Street Station in Brownsburg. Michael Mossman also suggested that the club consider the Pit Stop Barbecue in Brownsburg. Chad Williams asked Michael to look into the availability of the room.

Candy and Snacks Concessions Report — Pam Leucht emptied the candy machine because the products were getting stale. She said that she would refill it with whatever we were willing to buy.

Adjournment — Gene Hollingsworth motioned to adjourn the meeting; Dick Gurley seconded. The meeting was adjourned.
