Dale from Eckville came and joined the club and bought a fuel card.  Garrett came up from Calgary.  Interested in renting hangar space.
Jet Fuel system update:  The concrete was poured with two barriers imbeded.  The dispensor was made ready as much as possible and placed in position.  Most of the trenching is done and we will be getting an electrical quote soon for the wiring.   We  have a couple of tank quotes.

Attendees:  Myron, Heather, Bruce B., Bruce G., Dave.  IFC: Bob McCully, Shane Cochriell, Bruce Heaton, Rob Jaap.
Innisfail Flying Club (IFC)  4 members joined us and we discussed options they have for the COPA Convention they are planning for next year.  Suggested Sundre as a destination for possibly a breakfast during the convention and asked for volunteers for the event. Also possibly a mountain ground school and trip up to the forestry strip.  They offered support to our annual needs of maintaining the Red Deer Forestry airstrip (CFR7) and asked to be included in any workdays or events such as BBQ's, Flyins, etc.
Reviewed needs for the Jet fuel system.  Myron to get costs for upgrading our existing cabinet, and bring to meeting for approval.  Will be some ground work to do this summer.

Draft Only update TBD
Attendees:  Wayne, Michelle, Bruce B, Heather, Roy, Myron
Flyin Breakfast was well attended by locals, pilots, airplanes and classic cars.  Everyone said it went well also.
Heather asked Bruce if we can have access to our data on the Fuelpoint system?  Hes working on it.  Also he has it allmost ready for courtesy car sign out, and use of cards at other locations.
Forestry needs some fence work.  Someone cut fences and several posts are broken.  Arranging to rent a post pounder then we will get together and go out for the day.  Wayne B. is the contact for this job.  Grass will need cutting also.
Myron paid for the County development permit to start work on the Jet A system.  About a 20day wait for approval.  WE have grant funds to use up by end of the year.  So we should get the ground work, electrical, and cabinet ready this summer.  Then when we have funds purchase a tank.  It will enable increased useage of the airport and help to increase revenues.

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.

9  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....
