Field Marshall’s Report

+ Water lines are planned for irrigation of the runway. We’ll trench in the lines and purchase some sprinklers. We plan to obtain another water meter so we can use the hydrant to water the runway this summer. A LOT of help will be needed to install the water lines. We’ll send out a note asking for volunteers prior to the scheduled date for installation of the irrigation system.

+No new member present.

Old Business

+Our NMAD event will be on Saturday, August 14, 2021. We will support HVAF again this year. Several local dignitaries and television personalities are interested in attending.

New Business

* The club purchased a new BBQ grill. The cooking area on the new grill is about 30% larger than the cooking area on old grill. It still needs to be assembled, so if you’re going to be out at the field and want to tackle the assembly of the new grill, bring along some tools and give it a shot.

* This swap shop in Toledo will be held on Friday and Saturday, April 9 and 10; April 23 is the Dayton swap shop. See our website for details.

* We are going to have a couple of Warbird days later this spring and summer. The first one will be Saturday, May 15. We’ll decide later when to have the second one. During those events, we’ll limit flying to Warbirds only. We’ll use these dates as a warm-up and tune-up for our fall Warbird Fly-in.

* The NATS are coming up soon. Some events do not require entry fees. See the AMA website for details if you’re interested in competing in an event this year.

* The Spring Fling at Avon Town Hall Park will not happen due to changes in Avon Park Department management, which is not in favor of holding the event. We are trying to find another location. Meanwhile, there is a small pond in a Washington Township Pecar Park located on the south side of 150N and just east of 475E. We have gained approval to use the pond for float flying. We’ll schedule at least one float fly for a weekend this summer.
