Review of costs and volunteer efforts and donations to be reported for the grant from CEP by mid March on the Fuel system.  The system is close to complete including the Jet Fuel system which should be ready by spring.
 
Myron gave info on recommendations given by Explorer Solutions Consulting regarding the  Sundre Airport report at County meeting Feb 6.  Many revenue generating ideas presented that MVC will have to discuss with the flying club and recommend for followup.
 
Bruno gave update on IFC Copa Convention help needed and weather we want to do some sort of flyout prior to or after the convention with ODFA?  Lots of help is required so if you want to help out the Innisfail Flying club contact them directly (see meeting minutes Oct 2018), cleanup, setup etc.  
 
Bruce discussed the possible setup of an airport user group to help with flying clubs' common fueling issues, and ways to get the best use of our collective power.  More in future.
