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.  Contacts for the IFC event next year are Bob McCully 403 302 0943 (Pres., food), Shane Cochriell, Bruce Heaton, and Rob Jaap (logistics).  See the IFC website for more info.
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.
