Minutes of last meeting were moved by John Laing and seconded by Ed Scott that they be approved as circulated. Motion passed. A motion by Gord Hercus that we donate an amount to the Canadian Museum of Flight in Langley was seconded by Peter Sleeman and put to the floor. After some discussion both for and against the motion, the motion was withdrawn. Tony Swain talked about donating individually because as individuals we can get a tax receipt there from. Gord Hercus then suggested that at our next meeting, the AGM, we collect cheques from those individuals willing to donate and send them to the Canadian Museum of Flight Association under a letter from this Club. This would indicate not only our individual concern for the Museum but also that it is a QCAC effort. All present seemed to approve of such an action. It was them moved by Dave Bastien, Seconded by Bob Rorison that it be moved for acceptance. This motion passed.
