Meeting Minutes

President John Boutwell called the meeting to order at 11:13.
Other officers present were Paul Hockin, Dee Gilliland, Bob Herndon, and Cheri Anglin.
It was noted that a quorum was established with 24 voting members present.

Dr. Bob gave a safety presentation on general aviation knowledge.  There are new regulations for non-towered airports.  Pattern altitude is 500 AGL for ultra-lights, 1000 AGL for general aviation, and 1500 AGL for turbines. 

John thanked Coley, Carlton, and Jim R. for cooking catfish for lunch and Betty Gilliland for the slaw.  Chicken and fish will be served next month, and then there will be a work day.

Guests included Lee Morris from Pearl, Mark Brown from Raymond, Karl Packer who has a Challenger, Jennifer Reed who is a potential student pilot, and Seth Garland who is a student pilot at Hinds. 

Robert McCarter sponsored Max Parham as a new member. Upon a motion, duly made and seconded, Max Parham was unanimously accepted as a CMLF member.

Boyd moved that the minutes be accepted, Tony seconded, and they were approved.

The Christmas social was a success.  Hawkins’ 90th Anniversary celebration will be Saturday, April 20, from 10;00-2:00.  Cheri Anglin was added to the activities committee.

Paul Shadwick got his tailwheel endorsement, and Sonya Atkinson got her instrument rating.

Dee gave the financial report.  We have 49 voting members and one open hangar space is available.  The total investment in our new clubhouse/hangar project is $15,600 including $4,300 for Phase II materials purchased for the walls and covered porch on the south end. We have money for our normal operating costs, but we have reached the maximum debt limit over the next two years that can be supported by our current member dues and hanger rentals. So far, 21 members have volunteered with donations totaling $5,000 to help complete Phase II. Walter moved that Dee be authorized to spend all donations received to complete Phase II, Boyd seconded it, and it was unanimously approved.  Paul moved that the financial report be accepted, Dr. Bob seconded it, and it was approved.

Carlton led a discussion recommending that our beloved pecan tree be removed to improve drainage and to facilitate a new entrance road and parking area. Timing is critical while Carlton is here with his “free” equipment. Upon a motion, duly made and seconded, it was unanimously approved. Next Saturday will be a work day starting at 8:00.

Robert McCarter mentioned that aviation insurance will increase by 10-25% because of some large settlements this past year.

Boyd may start work on the runway next week.  Carl gave permission for us to use a part of his runway if necessary until the work is complete.

Dr. Bob moved that the meeting be adjourned at 12:34.

Respectfully submitted,

Cheri Anglin
