The March meetings will be held on their regular date, 10 March 2007, at the Museum of Flight at Boeing Field.  The Member meeting will commence at 10 AM and the Board meeting at 1 PM.


A Squadron Activity will be held on 24 March 2007 at the MoF Restoration Facility, Paine Field.  Family and friends are invited to attend.  Start time will be 10 AM.


Discussion was held re: training at HFM on 17 March 2007.  Ops O Dave Bauer will coordinate with host rep Greg Anders.


Pete reported on the status of the squadron's attendance at AWO 2007.  There is reason to believe that NWEAA will be able to accommodate our requests IRT our requirements to put on a successful AWO Island.  NWEAA  has asked for our A/C parking plan, fly-by schedule, forum speaker roster, the pre-registration of attending aircraft, and our rules for handing out passes.  Pete will see to those requests.  Pete and Curt are to meet with NWEAA reps on 12 March to further discuss our list of necessities.  Our list is to include hotel accommodations for the forum speakers and for our marshalers,  budgeted at forty room-nights.


Bylaws Committee reported that they had reviewed the bylaws and had no amendments to recommend.  They will, however, put out a white paper to address some misconceptions that have been observed in the conduct of squadron business.


Board business via email:  It was the consensus of the board that conducting business via email, where votes were sought to make decisions, was unworkable.  We will continue to use email for briefing purposes, but board decisions, if and when needed, will have to await a meeting.


There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 2:00 PM.
