3. Scholarship students: Trey’s getting close to 1st solo. Riley is doing check ride prep, needs a long X-country, 1 hour of instrument, and needs to take his written.

4. The flour drop was really a lot of fun. There was good food and good flld. We took in about $1300. Right now, the expense of flying went on the accounts of individual pilots; however, we usually reimburse them if they request it.

5. Tim’s roller won’t be available this weekend; therefore, we’ll get the rock for the hangars and will rake and roll it on June 27. Volunteers needed to bring rakes and shovels and be ready to work at 9:00 on the 27th.

4. Clean-up Day: We had a pretty good turnout; at least a dozen members who worked on projects showed up. A lot got done, but there’s more to be done. Willie sent a message through Don that he appreciated whoever took the trees around his building down and carted them off to the burn pile. Discussion was held re anyone wanting to “tinker” around on clean-up/fix-up projects at the airport should just come on out on Saturdays and work on them. Tabled for now. Discussion re Tim’s idea of setting 9:00 AM on the 2nd Saturday of the month as a monthly clean-up day. If this happens, we’ll let members know.

5. The subject of a high school student membership is tabled until August or so (when the students will be going back to school).

6. On the subject of keeping airplanes clean, Mehrdad, who is in the auto detailing business, offered airplane cleaning and detailing in exchange for credit on his account for flying. The consensus was to let him clean 9179J and discuss details of credit. UPDATE: Mehrdad cleaned and “buffed out” a section and showed us the before-and-after. It’s very noticeable. Tabled until next week.
