Topics for revision include:
Building agreement needs renewal. Improvements made to building will be reported to Airport Management by Williams and a request will be made for a 6 year lease agreement.
Bob Hartunian, Secretary
To All Big Bear Airport Pilot Association members; We are coming out of the COVID situation of last year with our first dinner meeting on June 8.
The Assn Board wants you to know about our dues policy. The last dues were collected in 2019 before the COVID shutdown. Our normal dues collection happens in the Spring of each year and the monies received are used for the dinner activities of that year.
As the COVID threat expanded into the beginning of 2020, all of our Assn activities stopped so we postponed any dues collections for 2020. Whatever funds we had accumulated were shifted to 2021 and we should have enough in the account to get us thru 2021 activities. Roger Schmidt has done a great job of managing our funds.
The next dues request will be in the Spring of 2022. At $35 per couple for dinner meetings, Hangar parties, and Christmas party, it is the best bargain in Big Bear.
Bob Hartunian Secretary
