Trick or Treat!
Monthly Meeting Minutes for October 13, 2020
By Ralph Doyle, Secretary

President Ralph Grant:
Zoom and meeting at the field called to order by Dave Harrington at 7:05pm.

17 members attended the meeting in person and 2 more logged in via ZOOM.

Secretary’s report:
Ralph Doyle, Secretary

Motion made, seconded and voted to accept the September meeting minutes as posted on the web site. 

Treasurer’s Report:
Steve Cross, Treasurer

The August and September reports were passed out. Motion made and passed to accept the two reports.

Field Committee Report:
Dave Brown, Field Committee Chairman

There was no report. We will determine to terminate if grass cutting will be ended for the year after the swap meet. The tractor was winterized by Dave Brown and Dave Harrington and the battery is in Dave Brown’s basement. The hand washer was winterized by Greg Tesson. Motion made and passed to accept the bid to trim the pear trees before November. As I understand it, they will look butchered. 

Safety Committee Report:
Sid Kinzel, Field Committee Chairman

There were no reported incidences.  The members are reminded that the field is open and everyone, due to the “virus”, should practice keeping safe distances.

Membership Chairman’s Report
Ralph Doyle, membership Chairman

If a person asks if he can fly and is not a member, be sure to ask to see his AMA card. The PayPal system is available for you to renew your membership. If a person wishes to join the club, November and December are free if the applicant pays for the subsequent year.

Discussion was held to figure out how to get the membership to place their membership cards on the frequency board.

It is the members’ responsibility to follow the RULES listed in the club by-laws and should not be offended if he is reminded to display his club card. Unfortunately, this rule is generally being ignored. We have 14 new members, please set an example and place your card on the freq. board.

Old Business:
Tree trimming was approved as written above.

New Business:
The long delayed swap meet is still scheduled for October 17, and there is a $5.00/car cover charge. The club collected $120 in admission fees. The members voted the current officers in for 2021 by acclimation as there were no other nominations.

The club received a communication from the FAA and Spirits airport defining the limits of the flying area of the club. A photo has been posted on the bulletin board.

John Campbell brought a P-61 to show and Steve Pokorny brought 2 antique engines and hopes that someone can get them running.

Meeting adjourned at 8:30pm


  • Been flying R/C since 1993. Building balsa airplanes since I was a kid. I love warbirds, aerobats, and just about anything that will fly.
