The minutes of the April 14, 2021, Board of Directors meeting were read by Karo. Randy moved with second by Jim that the minutes be accepted as read. Vote taken; Motion carried.
1. Treasurer's Report: Randy reported our bills are current and we still need t come up with the funds to buy Bob and Kathy Barry out.
2. Airplane report: Dean reported 17U needs the tach fixed; 4455 will be back tomorrow so we'll swap the Arrow as it needs to go to Bloomfield; we need to make an adjustment on the Chief's brakes; the Ercoupe's flying.
3. Fuel Report: Dean reported we have 535 gal. of 100LL and plenty of auto fuel.
4. Mike suggested we have clean-up weekends of May 8 and 22 at 9:00. In addition to cleaning up the airport, Mike suggested we wash planes and power wash and paint certain areas of the hangars; members should bring paint and hoses to help. Mike wants everyone to bring one idea to the table next week on how we can make money. The biggest way of making money is to get more flying out here. We really need to promote more flying and possibly enclose one hangar per year. Mike said we need help for the event on June 5 like cleanup, set-up, post-event cleanup, etc. It seems as though not even 40% does anything at the events ... it's the same 10-15 people every time; we need more participation before, during, and after events to keep our club going. We can't just rely on the same few to do all the work; we ALL need to pitch in and work at our club and club events. Mike read a list of planes that have registered so far; it's going to be great ... we just need members to get involved to keep our club going. So far, 15 planes have registered. Mike will give Karo a list of jobs where we need help so she can send out to the membership. Tim would like to see one of our antique planes give rides at our event.
Randy moved with second by Dean to adjourn. Vote taken; Motion carried. Board of Directors Meeting adjourned at 7:18 p.m.
