Club President Chad Williams brought the meeting to order at 6:07 p.m.

New Member — Ron Lehrman joined the club in June. He is not sure which of his aircraft he'll be moving to the field, although he has rented a hangar.

Guests — Steve Stahl visited the club at the June meeting; he used to lived down the street from Boone County Airport. He got his check ride at Brownsburg Airport. He is currently in a partnership with an airplane based at Eagle Creek. He has accumulated 800 hours and has an instrument rating, and just recently got his biennual from Chuck Long.

Club Marketing Project — In order to contact new potential members for the club, Earl Brosman downloaded a list of aircraft located within 30 to 40 miles of Boone County Aiport. Chuck Leucht pared the list down to aircraft that he believed would fit in our hangars. Michael Mossman designed a post card and Chuck Long printed the cards and mailed them. Nearly 500 pieces were sent, with the project coming in under the $225 budget.

Tailwheel Airplane Tour — Chad Williams received a call from the coordinator for tail wheel airplanes at Indianapolis Regional Airport. They are planning a tail wheel tour on August 13, which will be similar to a poker run, and they plan on visiting area airports with grass runways. Boone County Airport will be on the list. In the past the tour has had as many as 30 to 40 airplanes.

Fuel Equipment Status — The north fuel pump is now inoperative. We temporarily took the pump from the auto fuel system to transfer the avgas from the north tank to the south. Club members' avgas fuel price is currently $3.65 per gallon; we have about three to four months supply on hand. Earl Brosman postponed researching for replacement fuel pumps until the next time we need to buy fuel. Our current pumps are collectors items, and weigh in the neighborhood of 400 pounds. They can be restored for about $3,000 or rebuilt for about $1,500. Earl found a guy who claimed he could fix the north pump for $150 plus labor and parts but has not returned Earl's calls. Mark Poliak stated that Westfield has a simple pump with a small digital fuel meter built into the handle. Chad Williams motioned to allocate up to $150 for a new meter; Bill Wagner seconded the motion. All voted in favor of the motion. The autogas pump has a new lock. Anyone desiring to use autogas will need to have their key replaced.

July Elections Nominations — The club's annual election of officers and directors will be held at the July meeting. Nominations to date are: Ray Rice, president; John Saalwaechter, vice president; Dick Gurley, treasurer; Michael Mossman, secretary; Earl Brosman, director; Chuck Leucht, director; Chad Williams, director. Nominations will be accepted through the June meeting and up until the ballots are completed and mailed. After ballots are completed members may still vote for write-in candidates.

Treasurer's Report — Checking account balance $6,798.79; General savings account balance $5,932.77; Fuel savings account balace $5,746.03. In the general savings account $2,658.53 is earmarked as the fuel tank reserve. The current checking account balance is about two months' worth of operating expense. Income is right on budget but we are over budget on facility clean-up day. Electricity is $275 or in the first five months, probably because we are pumping a lot more water. We have a credit balance with Wright Propane of $973, as we did not use our allocation. NOTE: Chad Williams will substitute for Dick Gurley as treasurer for two months while Dick takes a leave of absence. Members are asked to make full notes on their checks for how much goes to rent and how much is for fuel so payments are applied accurately.

Hangar Vacancies — The club currently has 6 or 8 hangar vacancies, depending on how they are counted and where the club equipment is stored. Chad Williams will be moving his aircraft to an enclosed hangar at Crawfordsville, which is relatively close to his home. He will remain active in the club as he will be in partnership on a based aircraft with Bill Dampier.

Trash Dumpster — The dumpster will be going away, partially as a cost-cutting move, but primarily because it is an eyesore. The old waste oil tank has been converted into a burn barrel, and is located on the northeast corner of the hangar rows. If a member has bagged trash that they can't haul out, just set it out in front of the operations building and it will get hauled away by a club member.

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