V.  New business

          a)  Aerorama-Ed suggests a 2-day aerorama, Jim Dunn suggested doing a rain                 day instead. As far as picking a date Ed has dates from other clubs with                         their events and has a calendar to email out. This way we can avoid                               conflicting with other local events. Food venders, talked about other ways                   of providing food other than club members cooking. 2 prizes were normally                 given away on the day of aerorama, Ed talked to Walter’s Hardware and got                 an eflite apprentice for $140 and is looking around for other offers to use as                   prizes. Rush printing was mentioned to use to print tickets, their price is                         around 1000 tickets for $35. Jake Mertz is willing to donate planes brought                   back from his brother’s hobby shop. Ed is going to talk to local radio to get                   an ad on the air, Jim Dunn mentioned about getting a date picked to get                       into the AMA magazine. Walt was asked to be the MC for the event with his                 audio equipment and said yes. A flea market was brought up to have at                         Aerorama, Jim Dunn made a motion, Tim Vincent seconded all in favor

         b)  Mall Show- Tim asked about selling tickets at the mall show, Walt                                  mentioned about making sure we get the insurance, Jim Dunn made a                          motion for a new member to get free membership to the club while visiting                  the mall show event. Jake Mertz said he could donate something to raffle off                at the mall show

        c)   Ed brought up selling discount cards to generate income for the club. Walt                  said with being retired as most members are they don’t get in contact with                  many people to sell them.

        d)   Snowbird event sounds like a good idea so when the next good snowfall an                email will be sent out to let everyone know about it.

        e)   Port a potty – 3 quotes were received, $195 per month (LDR Site Services),                    $75 per month (Biros) and $85.00 per month (D &S)  D & S was awarded the                  contract due to unsatisfactory services from Bireos in the past. Tim Vincent                  made a motion to accept and  Nancy seconded, all approved

        f)    Locking the port a potty was brought up and Joe said that locking was a                       bad  idea. There is a local ball field that tried that and the whole unit got                       destroyed. Everyone is ok with no lock and posting a sign on it saying it is                     for the club and taken care of by the club.

        g)  Grass cutting Ed talked to Cee Jay’s about just cutting the parking lot less                     and the price wouldn’t be much less to make it worth it. They contracted for                 30 cuts but if he does less they will charge only the cuts used.

VI.  Adjournment

John Kennedy made a motion to adjourn the meeting. Tim Vincent seconded Ed Pollack adjourned the meeting at 8:11 pm.
