May 2004 meeting minutes

The meeting of KCAR opened with a few comments from our president Dave Bucher.

Last meeting minutes were attached again (a format that I will continue for reference and brevity — Christian).

The treasurer gave a report:
Balance of $621 in total monies with $550 in checking. Dave Bucher had some postage due: $20 which brings our current total to $601. Entries of debits include stakes for tarps $10, previous postage of $7, difference of $8 to Bob Wingate for the mystery $20 last fall, (Alans dues) and the purchase of a new stopwatch $7 for the contests. Income included $35 of contest fees, and $8 for Martin Ashwill prorated club dues.

Secretary duties announced were to follow up with Fall Contest Sanction with fees now that the Spring Contest results are complete. Form will be mailed week ending 5/29/04.

Old Business

  1. CD report on the April meet from the Contest Directors Alan Shaffmaster and Christian Bruggeman with a big thanks and that the Fall contest would run much better for now seasoned veterans.
  2. The Piper launch was a success and the logs are in Tim’s hands to cypher through and list on the web. The club had a good time and Mrs. Dailey was very happy that we were there for the 139 launches. The summer school program is still being decided on after the teacher is through with this semester.
  3. Summer School Launches Christian and Alan have been in contact with both Lee’s Summit and Blue Springs Kid College but no date(s) have been set.
  4. Final TARC news. Tim gave a report on the Team America Rocket Challenge for the year. Several schools gave it a try this year.
  5. Launch Equipment

New Business

  1. Launch Locations
  2. Trailer options were discussed by Alan and given more time to research the possibilities.
  3. Club Membership Cards were proposed by Dave Bucher and the suggestions that club discounts might be possible at local hobby shops.
  4. Airshow Booth The suggestion to get a booth at the local airshow at the downtown airport was offered.
  5. School Assistance It was suggested that the offer to assist local schools might be made by way of a letter or packet of information.
  6. Launch Fees The launch fee schedule was clarified.

A motion to adjourn was made by Dave and Tim seconded it as we all were ready to hear excellent egglofting ideas from Dave. I learned quite a bit myself and feel that this fall should be exciting as well as competitive. Thanks Dave for the lesson and different ideas on how to build a competitive egg lofter.
