NEW RUNWAY APPROVED

A while back the club discussed the GeoTech runway and getting estimates for repairs and upgrades. Here are the estimates:

Plastic: $1000.00

Geotex: $2450.00 incl shipping

Roller Rental: $600.00

Sand: $500.00

Misc: $500.00

Total: $5050.00

Tax: $500.00

Grand Total: $5550.00

 

After a discussion concerning the current state of the runway, including the number of large potholes that have developed, the club voted to replace and repair the the runway based on the above estimates. The new runway will be a significant upgrade over the old.

 

PLEASE HELP WITH A DONATION

However, to start and complete the project in a timely manner, the club needs to raise $2,000.00. We are asking members to donate $100, though any donation will be gladly accepted.  You can send it to Al Warren 2526 Alpine Dr, Morristown, TN 37814. Or you can send it to Vance Anderson via PayPal at vance1966@hotmail.com. Make sure you use the send money option and click friends and family so we don’t get charged a fee.

FLY-IN AND SWAP MEET

Because our runway project wont be completed on time, we are going to have to move the FunFly and swap meet into June. This will be discussed at our may meeting. In addition to our usual fly-in type stuff, we will be having a swap meet and silent auction. There has already been the donation of a 12 FOOT wingspan Telemaster, an 80” Cub, and a VERY WELL DONE warbird style plane to the auction. So please take a look and see what you might want to donate for a great cause. We plan to donate any funds we raise to a worthy charity. AND who knows, maybe your donation will get someone hooked on our great hobby/sport.
