The December 2017 meeting was held concurrent with the annual Christmas Party. Matt Kriech brought carry-out food from Squealer's Restaurant in Indianapolis, plus additional set-ups. Club president Ray Rice bought the meeting to order at 6:30 p.m.

Fuel System Report — The soil around the hole from the removed in-ground fuel tank tested OK, and the club should be able to fill the hole in soon.

Club Marketing — Ray Rice has been talking to other airport operators around the area, and they report that lessons are what brings people in. Ray reports that Don Geisler is interested in letting students other than the scholarship students use the Cherokee for lessons. Matt Kriech reports that his instructor is willing to take on new students. John Saalwaechter reports that he has a line on a Cessna in Flint MI that is available to bring down and use for instruction. Ray mentioned a compelling article in AOPA Pilot magazine about a club operating an airport and recommended that the members read it for ideas.

Adjournment — John Saalwaechter motioned to adjourn; the meeting was informally adjourned.
