  Went up Thursday, field was high, had been irrigated twice this week, grass high, irrigator wheel rut, cut it down Thursday. Went back Friday to spread cut grass. Went back today to flip and recut dead grass and member from Greenfield pulled in with his mower and he gave the field a lower cut and reflipped dead grass, field is excellent for planes with little wheels.
    The parking lot has a decent first cut, other runway was high, it got a first cut and will get several more next week. Will go up Monday and do more touch up mowing.

   Checked about 10:00 am, field needed mowed. Up there at 1:30 PM and the hired mow man was  there, introduced my self as club member, help man back up mow helper.   We split the field up and everything looks good. Told him to send ART the normal bill.  Going to be hot and dry for the next week, shouldn't grow much.

General Discussion / May meeting Results.
« Last post by Bob Blue on May 24, 2020, 07:19:13 PM »
    Had good meeting, total members 10. Had several older members who have been absent, are back to start
start flying again. Have 15 paid members now.  The field rent has been paid to Mrs Gearhart, and we have a mowing person who is mowing field every two weeks, at half the price of last year. So we should have a better year end balance than last year.  Plan to get to the field and shoot roundup and weed killer in the pit areas.
 June meeting at field, second Thursday of the month.  Bob
 Field has a fresh mowing, parking area will be mowed this week.      Bob

  Field looks great   Thanks to the person who did most of the runway and pits, looks good. I did all the North end and South end of the runway, parking area and out to the road There will be some dried up dead grass on the ends, but it will be chopped up after the next 2 cuts. The field looks good for the week end, will check it again early next week. Will bring the trailer up next meeting any will haul the steel cabinets out.

      Our financial situation is looking better for the 2020 year, we still need more members to help the to help build our bank account grow and do some improvement like fixing fence and white paint on the ends of the shelter house. Our May meeting will be May 14th.
