Prez Sez December 2014

Hi from the Saints club. 

A Volunteer for VP

At the last meeting Doug Sanders volunteered to take the VP position.  Thanks Doug.


Next Meeting

There will not be a December meeting.  Instead we will have the Christmas Party at Tony’s On the Main.


Field Sign on the Gate

The sign on the gate broke off and was on the ground.  I took it home.  If anyone knows who had the sign made, let me know so we can get another made.  The owner wants it on the gate.

September Meeting Minutes (11/13/2014)


Meeting called to order 11/13//2014 by President, Richard Jenkins.

There was a motion to accept the Treasures report as given.  Approved.


There was a motion to accept the Secretary’s report as printed.  Approved. 


Field committee report: The field was in bad shape.  It looked as if some farm equipment, most likely tractors, left ruts and deep tire tracks which stretched the length of the field from north to south.  Landing from the east or west was extremely hazardous.


There were no safety incidents to report. 


Old business: We had nominations for officers in last months meeting with the exception of the Vice President position.  Doug Sanders volunteered this month fill this role.  He is the new Vice President of our club.  We will change the address on the new membership application and also the web page.  Doug will get the laminator from Dick McGee.  There a small discussion on how to handle the applications from Mike Dierker.  By acclimation, we voted all the officers in at the same time. 


New Business:  We took a vote for the most outstanding member of the year.  Nominees were written down on paper.  Next we did made nominations for Officer of the Year and the ‘Crash of the Year’ belongs to Richard Jenkins.  He talked about how he folded the wing one of his planes.
