Meeting Notes

David Vargo, one of our newer members, soloed last week and Lyle signed him off as pilot. Congratulations, David! Give him your best when you see him.
Be sure to sign up with Jim Anderson to get your name added to the “Who’s flying today” list on the web site. This allows you to know who is planning to fly.
The Pattern Event is August 31 and September 1, Labor Day Weekend. The field is closed to general flying those days. Some participants come a day or two early to practice. While we don’t close the field to general flying, please greet our guests with courtesy.
We will need to do some field prep, such as mowing, weed eating, painting lines, etc. We will probably do most of this on Wednesday, August 28. More to follow. 
We will also need some help on the event days. Jim and Tania volunteered to grill burgers and dogs, but we can always use set up and clean up help.
The Pattern Event is a major fund raiser for the club so participation on field prep or event day is appreciated.
Bill and I are working on the options available for logo shirts and jackets. We’ll let you know specifics when available.
We will be electing new club officers in October. Between now and then be thinking of how you would like to participate. I would encourage all of you, and especially new members  to consider serving.
Our next meeting is September 17. This will probably be the last meeting at the field for this year and it was suggested we have some food! So, plan to come then. We’ll also talk about club officers and where we will have our fall and winter meetings. 
Hope to see you all at the field!
