President Don Hagopian called the meeting to order at 7:05 pm, with 31 people present. Again Rocky’s donated their banquet room for our meeting.

Don Hagopian welcomed everyone to the meeting and showed off the beautiful trophy that we received for the “Best Float” in the Pacoima Christmas Parade.  He then announced some important dates (listed below).
Don then introduced the manager at WHP, John Frymyer, who updated us on what was happening.  He made it short because of the fire extinguisher demo to follow.
The following is a list of things discussed.
1. Everyone needs insurance with American Airports and the County listed on the policy.
2. Membership applications went out with our mailings this month.
3. There has been some water outages around the airport because of the construction.
4. The new road is 3 months behind, due to litigation, but will start again soon.
5. There will be a Cirrus Expo March 25 & 26.
6. Lately, there has been some safety issues regarding GA airports in the news.
John Frymyer then took a few questions from the audience.

John then demonstrated the proper use of a fire extinguisher on an actual fire.

Dave Kolstad, Treasurer, gave his report on the Air Rallye to be held on April 2 (weather back-up April 16) Meet at WHP at the park benches in the morning and you will be given the route with checkpoints.  You will then have to figure out how long and how much fuel you will use, closest calculation wins the prizes.  Faster planes take off first.  Further info will follow.
