SECRETARY’S REPORT: The minutes of the February 26, 2020 Board of Directors meeting were unavailable so were deferred until the next meeting.
TREASURERS REPORT: Randy says it is all about the same except the credit card bills are climbing with the parts for the overhaul on 7717U. All bills are current. We have a good balance in the bank for this time of year.
AIRPLANES: Rick reported on airplanes. N84455 went to Rockford today to have the radio put back in and tested. It worked great on the way back. We are working on some issues with the Ercoupe and hope to have it back online soon. The Chief is available to fly now. The insurance is back on so let's put some time on it. All of the parts are back and it is just assembly before N7717U is back. Hopefully by the time we have great weather we have five airplanes back to flying.
OLD and NEW BUSINESS:
1. Indian Hills Community College is planning to use the Arrow again for their flight training program, so this will help with putting some flight time on the Arrow. Welcome back IHCC!
2. We have planned a member appreciation day for those members who have supported the club but are not able or haven't been nearby to take advantage of actually flying. We need volunteers to help plan the event and come up with some ideas for how to honor and appreciate those members. There are around 50 or more members who pay social dues but are not active flyers. Please help and come support them on April 25.
3. Mark reports that four students are in the ground school class that started on Monday. He thinks there might be a couple more as well. He had help from a couple of members who were there to help.
Chris moved we with second by Randy that we adjourn. Vote taken; Motion carried. Meeting adjourned at 7:07 p.m.
