An F5J practice session is planned for Jan 22, weather permitting.
A major DLG contest is scheduled for 25-27 Feb at the LARKS field near Tavares, FL. This contest is cosponsored by the Buzzards and the Larks clubs. Proceeds will help support the USA Team F3K World Championship team. Details are posted on RC Groups and club members are encouraged to participate and assist.
FSS #2 ALES contest is scheduled for Feb 5 at the Ft Christmas field.
A discussion was initiated regarding club treasury funds in that the account balance seems to remain well above current operating expenses. Options could include reducing annual dues or investing a significant portion for future needs. General discussion considered investment as a prudent option in case the club has to pay for future field access. This topic was tabled for further analysis and discussion.
The meeting was adjourned at about 10:40 AM.
