Minutes for January 2021 Meeting
This meeting was held on January 9 at the Ft Christmas field and called to order at 10 AM by president Raed Elazzawi. Approximately fourteen members were present.
Minutes of the November meeting were read and approved.
The Treasurer’s report was not available.
The Toys for Tots soaring contest held on 12-13 December was a big success. 125 toys were donated which is the largest contribution we have made.
College field mowing issue: Lee Bailey reported that the college maintenance supervisor (Bart) is awaiting permission from his legal department for us to mow the field ourselves. Also, Lee found a person willing to do the mowing for reasonable rates if insurance and contract issues can be resolved.
Lee located a 54 inch replacement for our mower deck for $350. Some modifications would be required to adapt the mounting arrangement, and he estimates these would bring the total to $450. The club approved spending up to $450 for this purpose.
Lee purchased a bunch of Seiko clone stopwatches for $6 apiece. The club will buy any remaining watches after interested club members buy theirs.
Next contest is FSS 2/3 at the Fort Christmas field next weekend.
The meeting was adjourned at 10:20 AM.
