We’ll offer airplane rides with a suggested donation of $20; a 50/50 drawing, and more.

MINUTES of the April 22, 2015 Board of Directors Meeting

The meeting was called to order by President Tim Scheer at 6:30 PM.

OTHER BOARD MEMBERS PRESENT: Randy Stannard, Calvin Colony and Bob Dunn.

MEMBERS PRESENT: Don Nelson, Mike Mango, CFII Terry Koehn, Chris Lenz, Brett Lenz, Trey Castillo, Dave White, Merlin Weissheier, Al Schmidt, Jerry Smithey, Al Kriegel, and Mark Eads

Because Karo was unexpectedly absent, the Minutes of the April 15, 2015 Board of Directors meeting will be presented at next week’s meeting.

OLD BUSINESS:

1. Treasurer’s Report: Randy gave a report on our financial status. We are in need of short-term cash, so Randy moved with second by Bob that we have Terry contact a couple of members who indicated a willingness to give us a short-term loan at 6% interest if we ever needed one. This should get us past the current maintenance bills on airplanes until summer flying season helps. Vote taken; Motion carried.

2. Airplanes: Terry reported on the general status of our airplanes. The Arrow’s engine is being re-assembled, and 5219Q needs a cylinder. This means there will be some big bills coming in.

3. Tim brought up the fact that our website is out-of-date and needs to be managed better and updated. We need to clean it up and get our current events on the calendar. Anyone who can help with updating and managing should call the office or notify a Board member.

NEW BUSINESS:

1. The graphics card went bad on the weather computer; Ryan got an older computer up-and-running to replace it.

2. Our scholarship students (Riley and Trey) have been held back due to weather.

3. Ground school is going well. We will have a sub instructor working with Mark for the next week or two as Ryan will be gone on business.

4. We still have a problem with keeping the airplanes clean. Tim brought up offering some flight time for washing airplanes. Anyone interested should call the office for information.

Bob moved with second by Randy to adjourn the meeting. Vote taken; Motion carried. Meeting adjourned at 7:03 PM.
