Metrolina Control Line Society Meeting minutes August 24 2019
Metrolina Control Line Society (MCLS) held their regular monthly meeting at Waymer Flying Field in Huntersville, NC. The weather was very unusual for August, it was raining, windy and the temperature was in the low 60’s! However, the large cold cheese pizza made up for the inclement weather!
The following were present: Will Davis, Westley Smith, James Duckworth, Don Jenkins, Everette and Jo Shoemaker, Ed Ruane and Howard Shenton.
The meeting was brought to order at 2:01 PM.
The club remains financially stable and has the funds available to support the 2019 contest season and beyond. Howard Shenton was reimbursed for trophy expenses for Half A Day and the October contest. The meeting minutes from July were read and approved by those in attendance.
The meeting was adjourned at 2:33 PM.
