Shiocton Flyers Club General Membership Meeting, May 16, 2018.

Members Present: Pat Van Straten, Bill Kortens, Carl Eichenauer, Al Van Straten, Frank Sausen, Tracy Hooyman, Derek Schulz, Greg Volkman, Rick Drath, Randy Conradt, Fred Marcks, John Baggot, Steve Knorr, Gerald Schulz, Dave McNichols, Brian Laedtke and guest John Gleneicki.

President Kortens called the meeting to order at 1904 (7:04pm).

The minutes from last month were approved as read.
The Treasurer’s report was approved as read.

Dave reported that he received a letter from our previous bank that they want personal information on the Board members for ‘Anti terrorism’ information. As all we have left in the old bank is our CD’s which will be rotated into the new bank as they come due, this seems to be a moot point.

Dave also reported that the airport Liability Insurance policy comes due on June 1st.

In addition to the Treasurer’s report, last month the question was posed as to how much per acre we pay to the drainage district. We pay $210/year which is the N/S runway and everything east of that. It works out to roughly 35 acres and $6 an acre.

Old Business: Scholarships. Bill Kortens reported that there were no applications for the Scholarship funds for this year.

New Business: Shiocton Fireworks. The Shiocton Business League wanted to know if we were interested in donating towards the fireworks. We decided to donate $250 towards the fireworks which is what we’ve donated for the past several years.

Greg Volkman wanted to know if the airport needed any black dirt and he would deliver.
Greg also said he’d be spraying the area for mosquitoes before the Fly-in.

Fly-in Business:
John Gleneicki attended the meeting and wanted to know if he could set up his display of wooden chests, etc. and sell them during the Fly-in. There was then also some discussion about putting out a notice to have non-competing craft vendors come and set up. As of this year, John will be set up and we’re going to see how it goes and then maybe next year see about having several vendors set up their wares.

Raffle tickets. Due to changes and late/slow donors, Steve had just gotten the donor’s list put together. Everyone had a look at the list and a couple of donor addition and changes were made. Steve, Bill Kortens and Dave were going to be making a prize run to collect the prizes.
                                                          *Raffle tickets (and Posters) are currently available on the table in the club hangar*

As per the February meeting, the food prices are going to be changed in an effort to rid the airport of hundreds of quarters.

The new prices will have hamburgers, brat patties, cheese burgers and cheese brat patties at $3.00.
Any double hamburger, brat patty, etc. will be $4.00.
Doubles with cheese will be $5.00.
Fries & onion rings will be $2.00.
Soda & water will remain at $1.00 and beer will remain at 2/$5.00.

A motion was made and seconded and the meeting was adjourned at 1946 (7:46pm).

Steve Knorr won the monthly draw with the pick of the Ace of Spades.

The June meeting will be held on Wednesday the 20th at 7pm in the hangar.
