Old business :
A reminder of another chance to support the club as the fun fly on june 12, we will need volunteers in all areas. Please contact any club officer to volunteer. The northern aces sent us a price to preform at the show and it was voted down as the price was un affordable at this time. The club generator has been fixed and is in working order thanks to Craig. the adopt a highway has been removed from a order of business as all present at the meeting felt we would have a lack of participation from members on the 3 days a year needed for the program (closed).

A solar refrigerator came in at $1900.00 ready to go plus shipping. We will continue to research and price shop for the best deal. It will be a club goal to raise funding this summer to build a concession building to house the refrigerator and grills and also to be used as a shelter for rain and snow days.

The meeting was called to order at 7:03pm by club president Chris Zangl, with 8 members present.

Secretary's report : was read and approved

Treasurers report : Financial report was read and approved, Current paid membership is at 74

Sod farm report : Formal report was not given, but i believe there is still good conditions.

Quarry field report : Formal report was not given, but i can report the Field is in great shape.

Old business : None to speak of

New business : It is believed the chuck fest was a success even with the scattered showers, it is believed that they had 20 or so pilots at the event. The little chute library is reserved for next years meetings. The club will be having the city of Appleton do a study to find the options available to us and the associated cost for power to be ran to the shed or shelter, we should see some numbers soon. The show and auction is scheduled for March 4th, a motion was made and unanimously approved to hold it at monarch gardens in Appleton. The monarch gardens will have plenty of tables, huge parking lots, more room than ever before, and they will have breakfast as well as lunch available. We will be needing some volunteers at the next meeting to help out Tim with this years event, it is way to much for one person to handle as well as doing the books and taxes. Also at the next meeting we will be in need of nominations for club officers, if we have no one volunteer for these positions a few have stated they would stay on, but then we will need to change the VAM bylaws since the people have already served the 2 year maximum term. Only a few more nights of combat are left the 19th and 26th, bring a plane out to join in or come out to watch. Since the October meeting will have so much to cover and be such a important one to attend we will be sending out for pizza, so make plans to attend!


Meeting was adjourned at 7:36

November 2011 meeting minutes

The meeting was called to order at 7:02pm by club secretary Tim miller, with 10 members present and 1 guest.

Secretary's report :
was read and approved

Treasurers report :
Financial report was read and approved, this years membership is at 74, we are now accepting next years dues.


Sod farm report :
Ground is very wet, field will be closed as of the 15th.


Quarry field report :
Field is in good shape. bob was to install markers to guide plowing of the driveway.


Old business :
City of Appleton is still working with Thomas Kowarski from CSC Engineers on our electrical study, with all the new solar setups available we may want to inquire about solar/battery combination as well.


new business :
Chris and Tim will stay on for another term but we have not heard from Jay as of yet. A motion was made and approved to purchase model aviation for the library in 2012. Hyler septic was called to winterize the quarry field porta potty and pick up the one at the sod farm. T.R. and Craig will co-chair the show and auction but some volunteers will still be needed. Galaxy has absorbed the printing costs for fliers (thanks Wade). We will need to approve the show budget at the December meeting. We spoke of still holding the model display but without voting and awards to keep costs down as well as the number of people needed to process the ballots. VAM membership renewal forms for 2012 are ready to go with the junior membership fee reduced to $10.00, all members need to renew before March 15th 2012 as this is when current membership expires. Scott has been asked to update our membership form and show and auction flier on the website, also we will need to update article IV change on term limits in January once we have a final list of 2012 club officers and appointees. we need to have the officers in place when renewing the VAM charter with the AMA. A motion was made and approved to add money to the one CD and renew the other. A big thanks to David Gagnow for his generous donation to the club of a complete airframe and other model items... thanks again David.


Meeting was adjourned at 7:34pm

Thanks to Lee Murry for bringing a small foam glider to show and tell.

Please remember we will be bringing a snack to pass at the December meeting.... see you there!
