The Minutes of the November 4, 2012 Board of Directors meeting were “paraphrased” by Karo. Bob Dunn moved with second by Brett Lenz that the minutes be approved as paraphrased. Vote taken; Motion carried.
OLD and NEW BUSINESS:
- Treasurer’s Report: According to Don. he “has absolutely no idea” at the moment, but thinks we’re about the same as last week. He checked the other day, and he said the S811 received at the Pumpkin Splat! a week ago puts the scholarship fund in the black again.
- Airplanes: Same as last week.
- Ground School: Mark stated there aren’t any scholarship candidates in the current session. Dave White stopped in and spent the whole evening with the class and talked about managing the aircraft, managing safety, and the practical usage of an airplane. Tim (Da Prez) Scheer was in attendance also. Mark said he looks forward to having Tim (who’s been present at each session over the last couple of years) and Dave again. Their contributions are valuable and practical. Discussion was held re having ground school for candidates again, like we did last year and, if so, we need to start it sooner rather than later. Also, discussion was held re advertising more and getting the word out earlier than we did last year. It was suggested we should start ground school the second week of February and award the scholarship in time for the recipient to start Flying May 1. Treiber suggested we should have a very small committee to discuss the scholarship program, timelines, and report suggestions to the Club. Randy moved with second by Karo that Rick chair the committee. Tabled.
- New Hangars: Treiber said not a thing has happened on them yet. Tim talked to Leroy and got a S1250 figure; discussion was held re whose expense it would be: Tim’s, Treiber’s, or Green Castle’s. Tabled.
Bob Dunn moved with second by Brett Lenz to adjourn the meeting. Vote taken; Motion carried. Meeting adjourned at 7:03 PM.
