1.1  Items arising
these are embedded in the agenda items below

2.0  - President’s report
A lot of work has been done in recent months by essential members
Bob, Baylee, Steve etc. resulting in FFQ engine temp improvement  
with appreciative applause


With no flying, the committee had looked more broadly to ensure support equipment -
Term investment was used to buy VH-GUD, this is dismantled in hangar as spares
currently ground cover insured.
General consensus to let this lapse when insurances fall due.

issues in choices to apply GUD:
FFQ needs to be fully used before extra standing costs (insurance, basing fee) justify another aircraft
FFQ use is constrained by operating days, instructor numbers, airframe servicing

When VH-GUD current insurance ends, insurance be withdrawn - treat as spare parts in the hangar.
moved BJ   second Rob   accepted
