BOD Minutes for April 2019

Board of Directors Meeting

Silent Electric Flyers of San Diego

Meeting starts at 7:17 pm

For this month’s meeting we talked about Jim becoming the liaison for the rotorplex.  We thank you for stepping up.   Two wind socks were bought to replace and or ad to the field.

We are also working on an article for the AMA magazine.  As the second largest district and 4th largest club, with 289 members, we should have more articles and mentions in the AMA magazine.

The bathroom lock keeps going missing.  We approved a GPS tracking system to follow its whereabouts.  Just kidding, we are going to install a chain.  Long enough to bring inside for those of us who have seen too many prank videos.

We approved fixing 3 tables.  Please do not sit on the tables.

We also talked about the AMA rules about instructing your non-AMA friends at the field.  If you have a buddy box and or are standing next to your friend and you are the Pilot in Command, you are allowed to let your friend take the controls.  However, if your friend is going to be the Pilot in Command you cannot share your AMA with him or her.  There is an AMA workaround.  Look into getting an AMA IP instructor ad-on.

We also discussed putting some of the clubs money in an interest earning account, instead of just sitting in a checking account.

We are on budget with everything this year, and to be even better. we have volunteered George to handle the raffle sales this year.  Personal or virtual, George will take your money and handle all the logistics.

Meeting adjourned at 8:45 pm

We the Board of Directors thank you, the members for making this the great club it is.

Your Humble Secretary,

Ken Dresser
