July 05 Meeting Minutes

July 25, 2005

Here are the minutes from Saturdays meeting.

Discussion started around where and when to fly the Club Project. It was decided to fly it in Mansfield at the October Launch (October 1-2). It should be fully prepped and virtually ready to fly upon arrival in Mansfield.

Mark Howe and others are going to contact the media for a pre-story and story on site.

Alternate launch sites are being investigated by Jim Kurilich. There is a small airport near Rosalia that looks promising. Jim will contact the City of Rosalia to see if it is a possible site to launch at.

Marty was issued a check for the motor purchase for the club project. The club project fund is fully depleted.

Treasury report indicates approximately $400 balance following Marty's reimbursement.

Stainless steel rods will be purchased for the Model pads, 1/8" and 3/16" rods are needed.

Four rails will be purchased for the high power pads, they will be six feet long each.

A trailer maintenance party will be held on the 4th Saturday of August (the 27th) following the club meeting to perform some needed repairs, cleaning and other items. The roof needs repainted, doors repaired and rods and rails cleaned. A check out of the launch control system also needs to be done.

Election Results

January 6, 2005

I am pleased to announce the results of SPARC's first ever contested election of officers (previous selections have involved arm twisting and such). For 2005 Ray Stoner was elected President and Mark Howe was elected as Vice President. Krys Davidson and Bob Yanecek agreed to continue to serve when no one volunteered as Secretary and Treasurer respectively.
