The April meeting will be held at the South St. Paul Airport, Fleming Field Terminal building. The meeting room has been reopened so there will be ample room to maintain social distancing during our meeting. This is the final date for renewing your membership for 2021 and avoiding a $10 penalty.
Field Maintenance and Spring Opening Day
We have some repairs to make at our flying site and since the snow has disappeared and the temperatures are moderated I would like to attempt to accomplish the following tasks on Saturday, April 10th.
1.The Field sign at the driveway entrance needs to be erected, probably in a new location. The posts holding it up rotted and the wind a couple weeks ago blew it down.
2.There are 3-4 posts that need to be replaced bordering the pit area and possible one in the parking lot.
3. Several pine trees have been removed on the west side of the parking lot, exposing the toilet. If possible I would like to move it further south so that it’s hidden from the road by the trees.
4. We have a mole infestation on the North end of the landing area and also the south end of the pits. The best solution to this is to set a trap or traps. More discussion at the meeting on this issue.
5. Finish preparing the pit area for the summer, ie. Install the top rails of the pit fence, erect the windsock, etc.
I would like to begin working on these projects at 9:00 – 9:15 AM, weather permitting of course. As usual, the field will be closed to flight operations while this work is being performed. The more help we get the quicker the work is finished. Hope you can make it.
