                                  Meeting Minutes

                                  June 16,2004

The June meeting of the Recker R/C. Club was held a t the club field on June 16, 2004.  The meeting was called to order at 7:00 P.M. by President Bill Dewey.

Roll Call: Membership Secretary: Gary Billmaier, 13 members present.  The club now has as of this date 70 paid up members.  Gary reported that the grass has been cut 9 times since the May 19, 2004 meeting.  The reason for the high number of cuttings necessary was due to the rapid growth brought on by the unusual high rain fall. 

Treasurers Report: Gary Billmaier Treasurer.  Gary reported that the grass cutting charge for approximately 30 days was $765.00 Gary also reported that all outstanding bills have been paid except for the gravel and the Bobcat rental.  See old business for more details. 

Old Business: Ed Grabenstetter reported that part of the gravel has been delivered and spread on the driveway approach.  The original amount thought to be needed was
4 or 5 loads.  Ed reported that the hauler goes by the tonnage and as this date he feels that the amount delivered to date is approximately 17 tons.  Do to the inclement weather the hauler had to stop the balance of the delivery, approximately 20 plus tons until the ground is firmer.  When the total amount of gravel is delivered, the process of spreading same will be finalized.
President Dewey reported that Ken Moore has found and purchased a frequency scanner.  The scanner is used but in perfect shape and the savings of buying this scanner rather than a new one was significant.  The club paid $200.00 for this scanner. 

Motion to adjourn at 7:14.  Motion  Ed Jacob's, 2nd Ted Csizek

We have in the parking area at the field.  If you have been somewhat disappointed in our parking area and have not been to the field in some time, you will be very pleased.  Ed Grabenstetter has stoned the parking area with screenings and it really looks great.  Hat's off to you Ed.  We all appreciate all of your hard work, many thanks.

That's All I Have
