Christmas Party last month was a big success and fun was had by all.
Steve McClure probed the ground around the North fuel tank and was unsuccessful in finding it. Earl Brosman offered to organize a party to dig around the tank to find it. The method of fixing the tank is still TBD but consideration will be given to moving the pump closer to the apron.
Ray had had discussions with the Mayor and his office. They are interested in helping the airport improve. They desire to improve the airport facilities and runway. The method and timing by which this will be accomplished is TBD.
Earl will look at the spring that is not allowing the grounding wire to retract.
Steve and Don will be doing the mowing this year. Don will mow the grass runway.
The wind sock was blown off of the maintenance hangar roof during the last storm. Chad and Steve McClure will repair once the needed parts have been procured.

Thanks was given to Earl for installing a new thermostat.
Chad Williams and Earl Brosman will look into using Facebook and other social media for advertising. We agreed to brand BCAA as a fellowship of aviation enthusiasts who are committed to safe, affordable and fun flying.
