New member Larry Brown was welcomed to the club.
Mowing for the college field was discussed at length. The college wants to charge us $7200/yr for mowing services which is not affordable. Lee Bailey has been exploring alternatives where the club arranges the mowing services for our 12 acre field area. Willing workers with the proper cutting equipment are hard to find. The likely estimate for the next cut is around $900 because the field is now so heavily overgrown. Subsequent mowings may cost around $600. Discussion was tabled with the following points to consider:
- The club has a credit of $800 with Seminole State College
- Mow the field one time for now and continue discussion regarding future use.
The meeting was adjourned at about 10:30 AM.
