Old Business

  • Driveway – The driveway is not in the best shape. It defiantly needs some fill in several places. Two of the officers will be talking to Steve about him supplying some crushed concrete/asphalt. If they don’t get a favorable response we will take it upon ourselves to get some material delivered to the driveway for spreading. Rod Nienhuis is still planning on helping with this.
  • We discussed the revised sign for the shelter.  A motion was made to purchase the sign from Signs Now because of the better core material that they were making the sign out of. The motion was approved by all in attendance.
  •  Larry Weller talked about the FAA’a sUAS NPRM. The AMA has a nice write up and a template that can we used to submit your comment. Here is the link to the AMA write up, http://www.modelaircraft.org/aboutama/AMA_sUAS_NPRM_Response.aspx. There is a link at the bottom of that page that goes directly to the FAA comment page. Please take the time to read through AMA’s response and submit your comment.
