Old Business:

  • Neal McGrath distributed financial statements for the quarter ended June 30, 2008. The financial statements indicated the Club had receipts of $206 related to dues from new and existing members ($140) and hat sales ($66) and expenditures of $656 primarily related to mowing ($270) and field maintenance ($360) leaving a balance of $2,518. A motion was made and approved to accept the financial statements as presented.

New Business:

  • Balloon Fest There was a brief discussion of the Club’s participation in this year’s Anderson Balloon Fest. Because a different group will be organizing the Balloon Fest this year, we need to determine if there will be a Big Boy’s Toy display and, if so, confirm that we will be invited to participate. It was also pointed out that after last year’s event we had a discussion of things that the Club could do to make our participation even better. The list is reprinted below:
    • Get all of the planes off of the ground
    • See if we can get AMA involvement
    • Consider having a group of Club members at the flying field so those interested could see a flying demo
    • Start earlier to see if we can get magazines or other giveaways
    • Consider having our fun fly the following Monday and inviting anyone at the show who is interested
    • Have a map to the flying field
    • Consider preparing bios for the planes similar to what Ed Gardner had for his planes
    • Consider having a voting for best in show
    • Consider a table that shows the accessories necessary to get started
  • We need volunteers for a Balloon Fest committee to organize and coordinate our participation. If you would like to volunteer please contact Eric Walker 864-231-0500 or .
