Attendees:  Tom, Myron, Dave, Bruce G
Discussion on getting our Helifuel skids up to par for sales of Jet fuel in future.  In order to meet W/M we need to replace the meter with an approved meter, then add on an certified for trade flow computer (Micon) to talk to the Fuel master pos system.  A proper tank with pump can be sourced over the winter and looked into when we have funds to purchase later.  Assorted items like concrete pad, wiring and piping to finish off the system in the summer.   To start we can/want to have the metering/flow computer dealt with which can be against our grant funds.  Then a development permit to the County, for ground work and installation of the tank base can be applied for by spring, with ground work in summer.  A motion was made by Dave to purchase a replacement meter either new (quoted from Spartan Controls) or refurbished if available that is a straight drop in replacement turbine meter to avoid piping modifications.   Carried unanimous.  Myron to investigate further.

5  General Category / General Board / NEW!! Fuel System Payment Terminal
 on: 10/10/17 at 23:31:56 
Started by flyhigh | Post by flyhigh
Fuelpoint POS system has been connected up to pumps on a demonstration basis for about a month.  We received a letter that we will be receiving our grant from the Community Enhancement Program.  Motion by Dave, seconded by Myron to move forward with purchase of Fuelpoint POS system. Carried via Directors.  For next short while we are still using the old manual system until system turned on and members receive their new SFC fuel card.  Members will use their new card to manage their fuel account.  Visitors will be able to use their credit card or choose to join the club and get card and the member price.   Members will be able to pay at the pump.  Visitors will pay inside terminal bldg.  We will be generating a form to sign with the SFC terms and conditions of use of the new membership/fuel card.  We will now have a modern fuel system that we can advertise to GA pilots to come to Sundre for their fuel and have the convenience of an easy payment system.  More Details to follow....
