Oct – Jan News

Here is a  nice video that Rob Russo and Steve Durham put together:

Jan 4th Meeting – New Officers elected

We elected club officers at the July 4th meeting.  Pete Owston is our new President.  Pete had been doing a great job as Vice President and took on the duties of Acting President after Rob moved from the local area.  Bill Meador was elected Vice President, Stuart was elected Sec/Treasurer and Matt is our Safety Officer.  We discussed the FAA registration process, the airport notification status, 2015/2016 finances, collected a few dues and renewed some memberships at the meeting as well. Matt said he hopes to get tables at the McMinnville swap meet this March.  Steve Durham was also hoping to get tables so there will probably be some coordination between Matt, Steve Bill and Gary for swap meet table sharing.  Talk to them if you would like to be involved.

Dec 7th Meetings

Our December 7th Meeting was cancelled due to flooding and bad weather.  At the November meeting we decided to try fill the sink holes at the airfield. A few days after the meeting Pete and Stuart talked to Norm and Gregg about it and that same evening Gregg dumped several  bucket loads of dirt in them.  Grass was seeded on the bare spot but being so late in the year the heavy rains, cold and and frost will keep it bare and muddy for several months.

The toilet was winterized with antifreeze solution to keep the pump from breaking so go easy on the flushing. You can pour the plain water from the jugs along the wall for flushing if need be.  Grass seed was sprouting in the bare dirt patches and hopefully hasn’t been killed by frost.  We have only one mower now. The financial spreadsheet for 2015 was finalized.  This web site has a new look.  It was changed to this new theme to make it work better with the wide variety of devices and brands of smart phones, although it still needs some tweaking and editing.
