Officers' reports: Commander This is the last meeting for dues. If you have not paid as on now, you will be dropped from the membership roster.

Talked about the Weak Signal’s RC Show this spring. If you are new or even an old member, this is a good event to get information and look at the new products. The AMA will be there and this is a good time to ask questions that they can answer. With the show coming TNT teamed up with to have some flying time or just come out to watch. They are planning on having some door prizes and a great time of fun. It will be located in the indoor soccer arena just behind the ManCave Condos on Albin Rd on April 9th and 10th. There will be a $5.00 charge for everyone that enters the door. More information will follow as these dates draw near.

There will be an auction upstairs at the Toledo Show. You can bring whatever to sell and even bid on your own stuff. The Club will not keep part of the selling price. What it goes for will be yours. This is a great way to get rid of things you no longer need, or maybe get something you do need.

Vice Commander Nothing to report.

Training No training

Treasurer Treasurer’s report for the month of Jan was read and accepted.

Trustee’s If anybody wants to fly at the field, you will need a snowplow.

Still having the Monday coffee and building session. Meet at Panera Bread at 9:00 AM then go to Hobby Town around 10:00 to 10:30 for the building and question/answer session.

Old business: We would like to get an opening day for the field. April is not that far away. The Commander suggested the 3rd or 4th week in April. This would include getting the start-up stands up, do a road cleanup and look at planting the runway extension and anything needing to be done. This is mentioned now so you can plan ahead to be there. Saturday the18th of April with a rain date the next weekend was agreed upon.

New business: Gene announced the AMA charter payment will be sent in tomorrow.

This meeting was the cut-off date to pay your dues. As many notices were sent out concerning this, any member that has not paid their due will be removed from the membership list. Kroggel is going to change the combination lock sometime between now and March. After he makes the change, the new combination will be sent out to our members.

Information Session: Gene Myers gave a presentation on the operation of servos and what the various parts do. It included the pros and cons of metal gears verses plastic gears, ball bearings verses bushings, analog verses digital, and the different motor types. It was well received by the members present. This was the third meeting where various information is presented to the members at the meeting. There are plans to have more in the future. If you would be interested in giving a talk, contact the Commander.

Adjournment: The meeting was adjourned at 8:00 PM.
