Meeting Minutes – Aug 2, 2012

The club met in the main building because another meeting was being held in the usual building.  It was a light crowd, only Steve, Mike, Stuart and Gary were present.  We discussed and voted to name next year’s fun fly event as a memorial for Ken.  We also talked about holding an end of year club BBQ as well as a separate heli only funfly next season, but we left details for those events to be worked out at future meetings.  We discussed some of the AMA-FAA upcoming rule changes.  Other subjects included mowing maintenance, AMA trainer/student registration, Ken’s upcoming memorial and Matt’s company.  We talked about the mishap Eric’s plane had while taxiing and decided, for safety reasons, that we should adopt a new rule that forbids the taxiing of a plane within, into or towards the pits area.  We will also continue to enforce the old rule forbidding flying over the pits area.  The next meeting will be held in the usual building at 7:00 pm on Sept 6th.
