The minutes from the March meeting were read and approved.

The Treasurer reported that we had $1489.66 in the account. Dennis announced that Jay Scheveel had donated some money to Chapter to cover the costs of our EAA registration and fees. Ray is going to check with the Western Rockies Credit Union in Fruita to see if we can get an account there that does not have a service charge.

Steve announced that the Young Eagles Day is still scheduled for the 23rd of April at 9:00 AM. Rain day will be April 30th. Pilots, airplanes and ground crew are needed. The number of kids is not known, but is expected to be around 40. An email will be sent out to all Chapter members reminding them of the YE day and the need for volunteers.

Josh Wesely discussed conducting a Westar Tour at the May meeting. It will include walking about a mile while touring three of Westar's maintenance hangers. We will meet in the main Westar parking lot outside the main lobby at 10:00 AM.
