Review January 2016 trials

Walt Basiago noted that there were two items instituted at the January 2016 meeting that were up for review. The first was the incentive program. Walt said that it was not successful. The members agreed and voted unanimously to drop the Incentive Program. Secondly was the manner in which the meeting raffle is currently being run. At each meeting, members pay one dollar if they wish to participate. Name is drawn at the end of the meeting. If member is present and has paid he or she wins the pot. If member is not present or has not paid, the pot is held to the next meeting. Frank Bobick made a motion to keep the meeting raffle as it is currently being run. Dave Kessler seconded the motion. The vote was unanimous.

Raffle Prize

The drone from Walter’s Hardware to be first prize in the club raffle was displayed.Walt Basiago indicated that the drone had a 4K camera which is one of the best. It has different modes and will return to the place it took off from. We thank both Walter from Walter’s Hardware and Les from Denise’s RC Outlet for their support of the club raffle.

New Business

Yearly Treasury Summary

Walt Basiago distributed copies of the 2016 summary of activity on the checking account and President’s Fund to the members in attendance. He stated that 2016 was a break even year and asked if anyone had any questions or comments. There were none.

Laurel Mall Show

March 11 and 12 have been set for the mall show. Kathy Basiago did not have the details as to amount of space. She will contact the mall to confirm.


The newsletter and tickets are ready to send out for 2017. Members at the meeting received their envelopes.


Walt Basiago asked if anyone knew if there was a specified memorial for Bob Greenal as there was nothing mentioned in his obituary. Also a memorial had not been sent for Bobby Francis as we were unable to get a response. Frank Bobick suggested that as both members died of cancer that a donation to the American Cancer Society would be appropriate. It was decided to wait until next month’s meeting to make a decision as there may be more information by then.

As there was no more business to be discussed, Tim Vincent made a motion to adjourn. President Walt Basiago adjourned the meeting at 7:29 PM.
