Field Review:

Cliff has been removing snow at the Southbury field and also the road leading to the field is flooded. Also be careful driving to the field since the road is very bumpy. Other than these conditions the field is generally in good shape. The Newtown field is also in good shape. 

Sound & Safety:

Gino mentioned to check your transmitter batteries after the winter months. Also mentioned was that people are still close to and heading for the pits while flying. Gino still finds garbage at the fields left by club members. 

Old Business:

Cliff mentioned that that our club insurance was approved. Tables at the Southbury field are for assembling airplanes and should be cleared off after assembly. Also Pilot Boxes should be freed up after you have flown. 

On the Frequency Board your AMA card should be posted. You are only allowed to fly at the fields if you have an AMA card on you. 

Bob Motta will send an Email to members to remind them that they need a membership card to fly. Next year you must wear your membership card to fly. For 72Mhz transmitters you will need to post your AMA card on the board and be tagged with your membership card. Next year you will need to display your card as a badge. 

A vote was taken and these procedures were approved. Also a new barbecue grill will be purchased. The upcoming work party will get rid of brush at the field bring gloves for the work. Also the fences at the Southbury field are rusted and will need to be replaced.
