Cascade Warbirds Squadron #2
Minutes of the Meeting of the Board of Directors
11 February 2006, Museum of Flight, Seattle

The meeting was called to order at 1235 hours by XO Kinchen.

Directors in attendance: High, Rombauer, Jackson, Smyth, Kinchen, Caruso, Barry, Williams, and Almstead.

Directors absent: Sherman, Anders, Owens, Teeters, Renquist, and Desmon

1 - NWEAA, organizers of the annual AWO Fly-In, had asked to address the Board regarding their proposal for us to attend their 2006 event. Jim Scott, Fly-In manager, presented their board's proposal and answered several questions from our members. After Jim left the meeting, much discussion ensued regarding the pros and cons. It was our consensus that NWEAA still lacked a full understanding of what we (and PSMVCC) bring to their event and the costs to do so. The Board took no action to accept NWEAA's proposal for 2006.

Inasmuch as it is the stated desire of CWB (and PSMVCC) to again attend AWO, it was the further consensus of the Board that we needed to respond to the proposal, both in general terms and with some specificity. Fred was tasked to write the responding letter.

2 - Fred gave a brief update IRT the Kelso Fly-In, noting that the existing FBO had lost its lease and that the City was currently negotiating with three interested parties. The event organizer is working with the City to assure our use of the hangar and grounds for the Fly-In.

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at approximately 1400 hours.
