noted that the field sign still needs the correct phone number posted. Clubhouse
heaters have been obtained and will maintain a very comfortable temperature in
the building. Thanks again to Horace Cain for his donation and to Larry Jordan
for purchasing the heaters.
New Business : After
research, Larry Rogers reported that a self-treatment for termites could be
accomplished for about $200 and some volunteers to dig and fill a 3” deep by 5”
wide trench around the clubhouse. Any repairs to the clubhouse (door, wall,
etc.) could then be made after waiting 90 days.
Club flight trainers
were discussed. It was decided to sell the current trainers and obtain an EP
Apprentice to be kept at the field. Two almost new Apprentice trainers aircraft
are available at minimal cost to the club. A motion was made and passed
unanimously to sell the current trainers and Tommy Matherne volunteered to
collect these at the field and get them sold.
Larry Rogers informed
