May Meeting Minutes

VAM Minutes for May 10, 2010 Club Meeting

7:00PM Meeting Called to order by VAM President, Chris Zangl: 13 members present and 4 visitors.

Secretary’s report: minutes were unavailable, but has been posted on the Club website and is approved by membership.

Treasurer’s Report: was read into the record by Treas. Tim Stadler and approved by members.

Sod Farm Report- Field Marshal Tom Abendroth advised that the field is in good condition but harvesting of the sod has begun and he reminded members to keep off of these areas.

Quarry Field Report-Field Marshal Kerry Hamilton advised that the gravel he ordered for the parking lots and around the sheds & porta-potty has been delivered and spread by VAM member Dan Bubolz. Kerry & Jay Strauss repaired flight station barriers and in put them place. Quarry field in general is in good enough that a clean-up party is not needed this year, although the runway has a few bare spots and the roof over the sandbox needs to be covered (shingles) in the next year. Kerry also reports that some persons are not paying for their cans of soda at the field. We use the honor system and if this problem persists, we might have to increase the cost to make up the difference. We understand that you may be caught short of cash on a visit, but make up for it on your next visit.

Old Business-Wade Knoke reports that the propane-powered refrigerator that was donated to us is broken and is too expensive to repair to warrant the cost. The topic was discussed by the membership and it was decided that it is more feasible to hold fund raisers (brat-fry, carwashes, etc) this season and raise the money for a new refrigerator to be purchased next year.
-Flag Day Fly-In: Jay Strauss (CD) confirms that everything is ready for the Fun Fly on June 13 at Quarry Field and formally requested $300 in funds for Raffle prizes and food supplies. A motion was made and approved. Jay also needs volunteers to help out before (Field set-up), and at the event (Gate greeting & direction duty, parking cars, registration of participants, security/P.R., food prep/cooking and serving, and an announcer for the PA system). Please contact Jay if you can help.
-Ground School: has been rescheduled for this Saturday 5/15/10 due to inclement weather last weekend. Some new members of the club showed anyway and were surprised to find an empty field. The last minute changes were announced on the VAM Forums, but not everyone got the word. We apologize for the inconvenience and will in the future do a mass emailing to members along with the forum posting.

New Business- Treasurer Tim Stadler advised that one of the Club’s Certificate of Deposits is coming due and asked what our wishes are. After discussion, it was decided by the member that we would simply roll it over and continue it as a CD. Tim also brought in Club Apparel for sale and advised of new changes that are being considered for future apparel.

Meeting Adjourned at 7:56 PM

Respectfully submitted by
Jay Strauss-VAM Vice-President for Secretary Jim Van Linn
