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 end of the year is fast approaching and your club membership will end at midnight December 31st. The PayPal system is available for you to renew your membership
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 15 new members, please set an example and place your card on the freq. board.
There was not old business.
The fall “Chili cookout” will occur Saturday the 14th (this Saturday), Rain or Shine. John Bruno is providing a St. Louis Food Bank barrel as this occasion is also the club food drive. Be sure to bring something to drink. So, bring out anything you think a needy person could use or eat. Event starts around 9AM and will end when the chili runs out. The December meeting will be open for discussion concerning upcoming events and club activities. Any input is welcome, so please attend.
John Bruno showed a 5 gal. “gas” can and electric hook-up that he uses to fuel his jets. Steve Adams, a returning member, displayed a Rossi .45 powered Pulse Aire Bipe. It has a fiberglass fuse. Chris Sostman also returned to yesteryear and brought a .25 powered ‘swizzle/ ugly” stick.
