Our Next Meeting:
Will be on Wednesday, March 16, 2005 at 6:30 P.M. at Ralphie's
in Perrysburg Oh.
On Holiday In Drive off SR 20 near the I-75, Perrysburg exit. Ralphie's is located right
behind the BP Station, so I am told.
It may also be necessary to have our meeting indoors again for our April meeting unless the weather
is unseasonably warm and windless, so we must conduct ourselves as civil airman that we are and perhaps Ralphie's will be
glad to have us back again.
To bring you up to date I am presenting a copy of the last memo sent to you in Dec 2004 along with
a copy of the minutes from the last meeting held at the Ideal Bakery in Gibsonburg last October.
The following is a portion of an email that was sent to me by Club Membership Secretary and Treasurer,
Gary Billmaier. In it he is requesting a special mailing to notify all members of a change in his address and instructions
for mailing your information. He is now in his new home and has a new address for you.
I think you should send the new membership address out once or twice throughout the months of Dec.
and Jan. My mail will be forward from the old address. Please remind everyone to send a copy of their AMA card,
E-Mail address and phone number.
RECKER R/C CLUB, INC. 10144 N SHANNON HILLS DR. PERRYSBURG, OHIO 43551
Please remember to include your email address, if you have one and your phone
number when sending Gary the information that he requested. If you have already sent him your dues and AMA
info, please see to it that he gets the other information that he needs. He would be glad to hear from you at the phone
number above. Gary would like to update our club roster. By doing so, it will help the both of us in corresponding
with you. Remember also, that when you change your address or other info, please let us both know.

October 20, 2004
The October meeting of the Recker R/C Club was held at the Ideal Bakery in Gibsonburg Ohio on October
Roll Call, Treasurers
Gary Billmaier. Gary had a previous obligation and was not present. There was no roll
call or treasurers report. There was a head count and the count was 21 members present.
Club election night. The remaining office not filled as this date was that of the President. Nominations from
the floor were accepted at this time. The names submitted were Ernie Zam and John Schell. The members present
were asked for a vocal vote, and Ernie Zam was elected as the new President.
Field Report: Ed Grabenstetter reported that antifreeze was added to the port-a-potty to prevent freezing of the
chemicals. It was noted that the tables will be moved under the shelter to protect them from the bad weather.
John Schell suggested that the frequency box be moved inside the shelter facility because the back of the box is
showing signs of water damage. It was also suggested that the a new back be attached to same that would be water proof.
An another suggestion was that there be a bulletin board installed to provide a club information source.
Spot landing winner. A series of photos were passed around to the members present showing an airplane (Flying King)
belonging to Ted Csizek entangled in the safety netting at one of the pilot flying stations. The photo also showed Ted
looking very calm and sedate as he viewed his spot landing expertise.
Miscellaneous Business: Ken Moore offered a Tartin
gas engine to anyone who wanted it. Bob Harrison said he was interested and since he was the only voice heard, Bob took
the engine home. The engine has been reworked by a man in Florida to burn Methyl Alcohol and Caster Oil (8oz. of caster
to 1 gallon of menthol Alcohol) Ken said it is a little difficult to get started but once started it is a very good running
engine. The engine has a Walbro carburator and requires a 15 to 16 inch prop.
Motion to adjourn meeting:
Motion 7:20 by Mel Meade, 2nd. Bill Metzger.
