called to order 9:30 CDT
Merickle has resigned his BOD position due to personal family
issues. The BOD acknowledges his support and contributions to the
substituted secretarial duties for last 2 meetings due to Alli’s
Easement – Dan still waiting to hear from Eileen Hennessy

resigned. Steve request a member to take over. Wand suggested

member – Keith Atkins accepted BOD position opened from Mike
Merickle's resignation. Dan states the by-laws require BOD must
vote. James motions/Alli seconds – all in favor. Kenny also
volunteered to join BOD and wants to get back on BOD.
proposal from Matt Tabor – has tons on few H2’s (gave handout to
BOD) and Matt want to re-introduce H2 pilots to Whitwell w/
discussion: Dan- policy regarding Whitwell has been given great
amount of deliberation and discussion w/ primary consideration to
safety. We had guided H2 approach, but it did not work.
Ultimately, TTT cannot regulate Whitwell w/o TTT BOD there. Pilots
tend not to follow our regulations at Whitwell. Matt has given this
proposal before and came to our current conclusion
was on BOD during this decision w. allow sponsors, and there were
concerns about abilities – blowing launch or landing. There is a lot
of consideration about safety concerns
Matt is talking about an Instructor and their student , not jus a a
member. H3 should be supervised and minimum for Whitwell. This
could be the exception.
are we insured at Whitwell? Yes – we are insures as a H3 site, but
can be changed to H2 stipulation
TTT needs to select Instructors not Matt. There are some H3
Instructors at LMFP. TTT must approve Instructors.
bring discussion back , but must have signed instruction and
approval form. Should be a cost and time involved. Instructor with
minimum H4/5 rating and has flown Whitwell as minimum criteria.
Need to hold right of veto of Instructor we feel not appropriate,
but Matt is the person who should be the one to propose and f/u on
paperwork trail prior. Tabors Instructors know these students and
motion to take a vote to have a sub-committee determine stipulations
and conditions to bring to BOD to vote on. Dan Shell to appoint
committee. More discussion
Motion to create exploratory committee to review LMFP’s proposal
seconds Vote Unanimous
Nominations for committee:
Gregory – committee chair
motions to have Mark Poling liaison w/ LMFP to begin sigh-up location
at LMFP for TTT. Olli seconds – vote unanimous
Poling duty to make sure its done right – Lock Box and work
relationship with LMFP.
swap lower field with bowl field and take fence down for better
approach. Big discussion about hay ensues….
motions to nominate committee to investigate hay rights and to
negotiate with Werener to remove trees and fences. Buddy- if
easement goes through, can we sell hay? YES. Jeff seconds – all in
recommends for committee to require Werner take away hay rights
until he puts 100 acres into easement and then get hay rights back.
