• No CO opening comments
• No review of prior meeting’s minutes
• IRT MoF’s Aviation Pavilion, Ron said he was surprised at the sponsor levels Marc Manzo had mentioned. Ron was thinking more in the area of $1,000 and had some board consensus already at that level. The board agreed that Ron should continue the conversation with Marc.
• Fred reported that he had met with the new Events Manager at the Medallion and the issue of the room rental rate had been resolved – it will be waived. The board agreed that our dinner party should return to the Medallion in December, 2016.
• Ray Carveth was in attendance as a guest, to answer any further questions IRT the AWO Fly-In and collect any thoughts about items that needed improvement. The board agreed to accept AWO’s offer along the terms as last year and elected to make this year’s fly-in a “max event.”
• Discussion ensued IRT flying events, to include a possible formation clinic, the AOPA fly-in at PWT, a possible CWB-specific event, two hangar parties, and the Boeing centennial.
• Ron asked for submission of any topics board members wished to discuss at the upcoming planning meeting.
• Fred said no scholarship applications had yet been received; current deadline is 29 February.
• We had a lengthy discussion IRT which venue to choose for the B-17 visit. Dave and Dan were encouraged to have an answer by the March meeting.
• Paul reported on the upcoming Marshaller training sessions.
• Dave will write the squadron letter re: the Pearson Museum plan.
• Fred reported that EAA/WOA has not followed through on their promise to disseminate our squadron newsletter to their Northwest members. Dave and Ron have this for action.

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 3:15 PM
