The field is starting to look good again after all of the rain. It is drying out nicely. There are several fire ant mounds around the field, so be careful where you walk. These will be treated..


TRAINING:

No updates this month.


OLD BUSINESS:

There is still a lot of debris left from the tree topping that still needs to be cleaned up. We need to schedule a work date to complete this work. The fence also needs to be repaired.

Jack Delmatto, one of our youth flyers won the drawing for the airplane raffle. Congratulations Jack, happy flying.


NEW BUSINESS:

 A motion was made and passed to insure the Bair-le-Pulling field with the AMA as a year round field. This will not only give us a secondary field to use, it will be available as a replacement field in case our lease is not renewed sometime in the future.

Our event at the Bair-le-Pulling Tractor Pull next year will also be a STEM program for Boy Scouts.
