5. Finance Director’s Report: The following items were discussed:
A. Al Cans for 2 X 4’s: No new developments.
B. Offutt Air Show, Sat, 11 Aug 18: Still await the profit share distribution. Finance Director Ron Strawn indicated the following lessons learned: (1) Provide containers for recycling plastic bottles and Al cans; (2) Provide golf carts from the main gate for disabled and older attendees to a closer viewing area; (3) Business cards would be handy for attendees interested in our cause. Also a better route is need for the golf carts from the parking lot to the tent viewing area which is not so close to FAA restrictions and that does not go thru rough grass terrain with obstacles. The next Air Show is set for 1-2 Jun 19, when the Crew is deployed to KY, but only 4 of the 11 2018 Air Show volunteers will be on the 2019 Deployment, so would it be possible the Crew to still work the 2019 Air Show with non-deployed volunteers?
