Jim reported elk have crossed the west end of runway. He will fill in hoof prints when he can. For now watch out for holes at west end of runway.

Jim reported that we need to change out the wind sock. We have a spare but will need to be done when at least three people are at the field.

Meetings at the field this summer will be held on Saturdays. There will be a bbq and we can fly before and after the meetings. Time of meetings is still undecided but somewhere around mid day. Hopefully this will encourage more people to attend meetings. If nothing else it will give members one day a month we can get together and fly and B.S.
