January 6, 2010 meeting

The meeting started with our plentiful hamburger/hotdog/chips and drinks Bar-B-Q at 6:00. It is still only $3!!!

Meeting called to order at 7:09 PM by President Ben Hallert with V.P. Bill Dewey and Sec./Tres. Randy Stout also present. The 24 members and guests in attendance then introduced themselves. Guests and returning members in attendance included; Sid Voorhees, Tom Preuss, Bruce Lamont, Tony Horvath (and his wife Megan) and Larry Wickheiser and his wife. Welcome to all!

The next breakfast will be held on Saturday, 16th of January. Continued raking crew activity (bring a rake!!) to help spread a load of loam that Daniel Cathy has provided. This should take seed and make a better taxiway this next spring when the grass grows up. After this breakfast we will meet at Tony Horvaths hangar at the north end of Creswell for a shop tour.

Randy Stout mentioned that local weather (at least local in the Jasper area) is provided online at: Http://www.wunderground.com/weatherstation/WXDailyHistory.asp?ID=KORSPRIN8

This is a great site- check it out!

The Christmas dinner was then discussed, but without past President and dinner coordinator Dave Petersen being in attendance, we will wait until next meeting for a report and list of ways to make it even more fun this year.

The new video projector purchase was discussed, with no further action to report at this meeting. Ben has been working on his www.starwarsuncut.com video clips. This should be a hoot when done. Check it out!  (ed: #1 and #2)

Dave Heisley, our water master and clubhouse manager has announced the annual cut off of water will occur just after the meeting, to be turned on before the next meeting. He also asked and was granted a rent reduction for the South Lane Modelers group, from $250 to $125 due to his efforts that offset some of this rental money. Thanks Dave!

Bill Dewey had suggested that we install a low voltage lighting system on the new covered deck area, in order to see better without needing another building permit. No further research has been accomplished to date on this project.

Speaking of Bill Dewey, we had our nomination for Volunteer of the Year award and his name was the unanimous choice. Congratulations Bill!!

The Challenger II belonging to George Oswald was the next topic of conversation. It was sold last week and so the clubhouse is now available for the next project. Several ideas were bounced around, but no one idea has risen to the top yet. Everyone keep looking around!

Daniel Cathy rose to mention that the Columbia River Chapter of the Short Wing Piper club will be at Creswell on the 20th of March, which coincides with our EAA breakfast.  He also spoke about the upcoming OACAC Oregon Air Tour starting on July 18th to the 23rd, and a as yet to be dated trip to Lake Chelan. He noted that the next OACAC meeting will be held at the Roseburg Airport in Dave Olsons hangar on the 23rd of January.

Last falls shop tour of Dale Young was wonderful, and he has now run the engine on the airframe. You can post news like this to the web site by emailing Ben at ben@hallert.net and requesting a password to post.

There being no new business, the meeting was adjourned at 8:18 PM.

Respectfully submitted,

Randall Stout
Secretary/ Treasurer
