Some notes on the minutes from the recording secretary:

I'm continuing to fiddle with the format of the minutes.  Let me know what you like and don't like!

I love all the information presented in the Parade of Planes.  I wish I could type fast enough to capture it all!  If you are going to present a plane, feel free to send me any information you think might be useful to appear in the minutes, and I'll put it in.

 Also, please remind me of your name when you present... even my Dear Close Friends!  Then I won't have to be embarrassed by my terrible memory, and it might also be useful for guests and other members of the club that you might not know so well.
