June Meeting 2017

Greetings all.  We were one member short for an official meeting.

John brought his laptop and gave us an incredible slide show of his trip to the Smithsonian Air Museum(s).  He has more photos so maybe we will see them next time.

Keep next in mind the next meeting in July.  Call a member and invite them to come.  Remind as many as you can.  We need folks at the meeting and it is a social club as well as a flying club.

Until next time.....

However, we did discuss the fun fly this weekend for Saturday the 25th. Mid morning brunch, bring what you like to eat and enjoy the food and friendship. Please remind anyone who may have missed the meeting....the more the merrier.

I was able to get the check for AMA from Dave and got that in the mail today. So we are officially official.

Our next meeting falls on tax day, April 18th. Let's spread the word to all BARC members to come to the meeting and share in the process.

January minutes were read and accepted as published.

A reminder for our fun fly on March 25th was made.

Treasurer's report was read and accepted, passed by vote.

A discussion was made by the new secretary about this year's charter dues for AMA. A motion was made by the treasurer to allow the check to be written at such time the dollar amount is finalized. This motion was passed by vote.
(I have finally made contact with Lois at AMA. It is in fact $200 for this year).

Ralph/Dave made mention of a $10 payment for our tax status for the year. I need some clarification from Barry (or I will dig through the past records) to find the who and where this money goes. I will try to have this answer for the next meeting.

The treasurer informed us that the club has 17 paid members as os February 21, 2017.

March 25th Fun Fly with pot luck (brunch). More info-time, food ideas etc at March meeting.

Len made a suggestion that future fun fly's should be held the weekend following the monthly meeting so as to maximize exposure and help with better attendance. Food for thought (pun intended).

Dave and Mike rolled the field on February 20th. Thanks guys!!!!

Dave mentioned that the club needed to make a donation to the church for use of the meeting room. So we had a check written for the church and it is ready for the president to pass it along to the appropriate parties. Thanks Dave!!!

Finally, Dale is doing ok and is anxious to get to the field and resume scaring the local bird population. We sure wish him a speedy recovery and hope he walks better with his new knee.

Meeting was adjourned @ 7:30 PM.
