 Club Maintenance

 The broken glass in the club windows need to be either replaced or removed. Pat said he could get the glass and replace them.

The gate status was discussed. We need to get a draft letter, asking permission for the locked gate, and present it to the landowners for signatures so we can approach the police jury about permission to have the locked gate.

On the table for discussion at the next meeting is the subject of repair to the runway!!


Safety Report
            No Report
Old Business

 Jim Martin made a motion to only leave out TWO trash cans except for event weekends. Mike Young seconded the motion and it passed.

 As everyone SHOULD know --  IT IS EVERYONES RESPONSIBILITY TO EMPTY THE CANS WHEN EVER THEY NEED IT.  PLEASE HELP TO KEEP THEM EMPTY.   The next option will be to remove the cans entirely!!


New Business
            Mike Rowe announced we WILL have a raffle at the Warbirds Over Louisiana Flyin. The prize has not been secured as of today.
            President Ernie Nettles recently mailed out a survey to all 60 members. Unfortunately he only got 28 responses. He reviewed the responses stating that the majority of responders wanted to continue with MayDay, Warbirds and the Pattern event but only 20% wanted to continue hosting the Fallfest flyin. 
He also said the majority agreed on the possibility of raising the dues to either $120 or $150 per year.

Mike Young made a motion to adjourn the meeting and it was seconded by David Frazier. At that time the meeting was adjourned
