Pres. Dennis Bailey opened the meeting with quite a lengthy agenda.
17 people have paid their dues so far.
The City of Oakdale has decided to raise hanger rents and tiedowns this year.
Hangar rent will be going up to $180 _$185.00 per month and tiedowns $65.00.
Our chapter area rent so far has not changed, but will posibly be up for revue at a later date.
Taxiway and fencing work will not start until sometime in April.
Dennis is hard at work at getting MOGAS on the airport,price of Mogas is quite a bit less than100LL.
The demand for Mogas is pretty large ,and Oakdale wants to be one of the first places to carry it.
James Davis has been working on a new location for the new trailor and meeting room.
The location behind the hangar is not large enough to accommodate it,not enough room to the fence.
Ken Scott reported that his airplane is getting close to finish.
A membership drive is scheduled for June 20 meeting with a BBQ afterward.
Some members of Modesto pilots assc and members of CAF are contemplating starting an EAA chapter
Or combining with us.The members did not seem to overwhelmed with the idea ,but decide to check
Into it further if it is in our interest or not.

Golf carts can't fly but you can turn your airplane into a golf cart. It's easy, just throw your golf bag into your plane and fly to JB Golf in Farmingoton, Ca. JB Golf is located on the SFO sectional just east of Stockton (KSCK) and is marked as J-B on the chart. It's airport designator is CN29 accrording to Airnav.com. You can find info on J-B here: http://www.airnav.com/airport/CN29
Prices are $8 for 9 holes and $10 for 18 (playing the same 9 twice). It is a short part 3 course but who cares because you landed your airplane ON the golf course! Drag the strip once to warn the golfers you are coming then use your best short/soft field techniques to land next to the 4th fairway. The strip is 1800 feet long but is only 30 feet wide so keep it in the middle. The strip is marked restricted on the chart but the owner welcomes any pilot with the skill levels necessary to land on a short narrow grass strip.
Here are a few pictures from my recent trip to JB Golf in my flying golf cart:
