Minutes from 3/2/2011 meeting

Meeting Notes for February 2nd, 2011

The meeting started at 6:00 with our normal BBQ hamburgers and hot dogs, with  Melinda’s famous chili! Also salad and chips and mucho cookies. Which reminds me, how about a taco night next time!!
Meeting called to order at 7:03 PM by President Bill Dewey and Sec./Tres. Randy Stout also present. The 18 members and guests in attendance then introduced themselves and gave a brief “What exciting thing happened this last month”.  Bruce Curtis introduced his young friend, Cormack Reedey, who is doing an aviation unit from school. We also hosted Eric Lawson and Erin Keenan, who are ½ owners in a KR-2S, which suffered a prop strike so they would appreciate some help with the repair. If interested, call Eric at 425-829-4615


Charlie Walker was asked to check on the progress of the sign from John Stahr from Chapter 1457 which says “Don’t drive on the grass”.
The next Chapter 31 breakfast will be held on Saturday, 19th of March.

Past President Ben is still working on getting a new computer to dedicate to our projector project in order to watch TV and DVD’s without someone having to bring a laptop. Past President Dave Petersen said he has a laptop that might work, which he brought and, sad to say, would not cut the mustard. He has another one, which will be cheap but not free, and he will try it at the breakfast to see if it might work. Stay tuned!!


The passing of Past President George Oswald was then noted. His obituary is now posted on the web site. A wonderful guy and a big loss to everyone who knew him. Our sincere condolences to Vivian and his son for their loss.


The Memorial Area plans are still progressing.  We still hope to have the final site chosen and a rough idea as to what the city of Creswell wants in the way of bridges (or hopefully just a filled in culvert) by the next meeting. President Bill believes that the building permit fee might we waived on this project. He is meeting next week with his wife (Dee’s) garden club, who make take on the landscaping part of this project.


Dave Eason asked if anyone had an 8 day clock they wanted to sell.


Past member Jim Mahoney has completed his move to Florida. Sunny skies Jim!!


Dave Heisley asked if it would be OK to put up an American Flag in the clubhouse at the request of the South Lane Fliers. All were in agreement that this is a fine idea. He then spoke briefly about the “Nevada Triangle”, that area of lost planes due to tremendous wind shears.


About Time Aviation has asked for and received permission to use the clubhouse (for our normal honorific) on the 24th of March from 6:00PM to 8:00 PM for a weather seminar. All are welcome to attend.


Secretary Stout brought a list of paid members to the meeting and passed it around. Several corrections to addresses, phone numbers and email addresses were made, along with a few more paid dues. Thanks to everyone for their support and help.


Dave Petersen was asked to make up a YE calendar.Charlie Walker asked if it might include a North Bend joint event. Dave will review this request and have a report for next meeting.


That concluded the business portion of the meeting.
There being no new business, the meeting was adjourned at 8:17 PM .

Respectfully submitted,

Randall Stout
Secretary/ Treasurer
