A secondary motion was made by Jerry to make Larry Sackadorf an Honorary member. The motion was seconded by Bob Adkins and approved by the majority in attendance.
Ocean City Air Show – Due to the amount of work involved verses RKMD3 income made, the question of the club’s involvement with the OC Air show for 2012 was in question. After discussion about returning unused beer to the distributor and the use of Gators to transport supplies to the beer tents a motion was made by Sack to pursue the Air Show with the revisions mentioned. The motion was seconded by Curtis Andrews and approved by all in attendance. Bob Thompson will chair this event with help from Sack.
