He reported that there have been a number of complaints registered with him and other members by employees working in those buildings bordering the north and northwest leg of the flight box. These complaints mean that some members are wandering far outside of the area we are restricted to by our lease agreement. After some discussion President Sundheimer urged that those present make others aware of the importance of strict observance of our flight boundaries which have been established for sound reasons of public safety. Anyone who sees these rules being violated should report such violations to club officers.

  • The question was then raised regarding the work on our road. President Sundheimer announce the latest word as to the county work schedule. He point out that as of the present there is no definitive schedule and that the county will next inform us as to when a schedule will be worked up will be the 19th of November. It is at that point when there will be a go or no go as regards the Warbirds Over Sarasota event.
