Currently email string
Member Gordon Lunn reported that, what was referred to as an
email string was totally uncalled for and the responses submitted by the
Secretary did nothing more than further alienate the Society with the Park
Service. Mr. Lunn then stated that any further Nike business will be conducted
for his own accord and will have not relationship with the
Society. When Mr. Lunn finished his statement and he left the meeting.
The email string has been entered as a matter of Society business and is available for anyone to review with prior appointment.
The president made a motion that bi-monthly meetings should be expanded to quarterly meeting. The matter was voted on and approved with the condition that the by-laws call for the former. The Secretary will review the by-laws and report his findings at the next meeting.
Signs for SF-88
To date there has been no response from the GGNRA with regards to the signs. The Secretary read a current email he sent to General Supt. Frank Dean, with regards to the signs, which no response was received. It was discussed that it was very unprofessional for a public agency to not respond to public inquiries. A plan to have a face-to-face meeting was discussed and is planned for the month of December.
Observations while at SF-88
Ron Parshall brought to the records the following deficiencies were observed:
Elevator motors in A-pit. An relay has been broken for quite some time. The relay does not permit the second motor to activate resulting in only one motor operating, which caused excessive strain on this motor. This strain can cause a serious malfunction of the system.
Exterior rails need attention. They suffer from rust and exposure to the severe elements.
Elevator doors acquired from the marine mammal center are stored outdoors and are rusting. They need to be stored undercover.
The meeting was adjourned at 14:40.
The next meeting will be held in Alameda on January 19th, 2014 at 1:00 p.m.
