Thanks to Ron Jacobs for facilitating our meetings on Zoom. He has no other issues to discuss at this time.

Greg Brown and Alec Gyorfi are working on the motor generator. Alec has been out for a week so we will get an update when he returns. Greg also has been looking for binders and parts lists. Judy Kellogg and Linda Stoppoloni have compiled a partial list of manuals Ron Parshall has in Alameda. Judy will forward this list to Greg. Greg also spoke with Amanda Williford who is in charge of Park Archives and Records Center in San Francisco for the GGNRA. She is going to scan 6 manuals and send them to Greg. She has 18 boxes of Nike manuals. Greg says we need to find a regulator board that may be at Battery Wallace. We need to do a survey of parts that we have at off-site locations and make sure that a member of the Nike Historical Society is in attendance to identify these parts. Al Blank was asked about getting another dehumidifier, he agreed and will be asked when it is coming.

Al Kellogg will go to the site in November and do some weed whacking with some volunteers.

Gordon Lunn attended the 47th reunion of the California 250th/251st National Guard battalions held in Las Vegas this year. Approximately 40 people attended. He told them the first thing on our agenda is acquiring the Alaska missiles and then addressing the graffiti on Hill 88. Their next reunion is in October 2022. We all agreed to help with covering the graffiti in June 2022 and Al Blank as well as his boss, Masaki Mizushima, will be informed that we will be ready to go. It will be quite a big job and more paint may be needed.

The Alaska Association for Historic Preservation will be holding a zoom meeting and anyone is invited to log on to their site to view it.

Our next meeting is scheduled for January 16, 2022.

Meeting adjourned at 11:53 a.m.
