Today’s weather, YUKKY
Participants: Mark McClellan, Jim Bates, Bill McCain, Dick Blackburn,
Johnny Walker, we were “graced” with the presence of club royalty,
Dave Putnam AND! his grace Wayne Windsor. Wayne Huffman came
out of the woodwork, literally. He came thru the woods on his “British
Phonebooth” looking golf cart. In absentia (too lazy to come out) Lonnie
Hagadorn, informing me of his proxy vote to go “status quo”. Another
technical term for let sleeping dogs lie.
So, we held the meeting at Mark McClellan’s, much thanks Mark.
On Marks suggestion, we moved out to his pool “play house” (bar).
And no, no one had liquor, um, except me. I was “double dog” dared into
trying “apple cinnamon pie”. I like apple pie of any kind, especially with ice cream.
My surprise was that it came in a cup. Hmmm. One teaspoon was enough.
Next, all I heard was a lot of yuk, yuks from the crowd. Who says you can’t teach
and old dog some new tricks. Shhhh, don’t tell anyone.
Enough of that. Dick brought us up to speed on the past meeting, and finances.
Next was the “new items”. This of course was the election of officers.
Before I could commence with the nominations, Mark blurted out to go
with the same as last year. Before I could say anything else, all hands were
in the air. Seconded, and carried. Sounds like a repeat of last year.
Actually, I wasn’t too surprised.
I hope I can live up to “expectations”.
If you haven’t been out to the field lately, we’ve covered two sides of the
main carport. added some flooring (more to come). Working on closing the ends
of the carport. This was done to block the wind. Both for pilot comfort and keeping the
planes and equipment on the tables. Added a double size second storage cabinet.
Thoughts that were brought up for this coming year:
– move the far side carport near to the “most used” carport. it would be separated
by about 10’. Just works out better for the fliers.
– leave the port a john were it is
– give the tractor shed a new coat of paint.
– do a clean up of the “stuff” in and around the tractor shed, and the “stuff” under the
– do a clean up in the tractor shed
– install shelving in the tractor shed
Volunteers are most welcome.
