Webmaster updates: Ron Jacobs advised it is time to provide an update on the Chatsworth Historical Society that he and Greg Brown have been working on. An up-to-date membership list would be used to keep the members informed. Linda Stoppoloni suggested she could help with the membership listing with Judy Kellogg. They will get in touch about the excel documents before the next meeting.

CT-1 paperwork has been filled out for the Initial Registration, a check for $50 was provided by the Treasurer and all documents will be mailed on 1-17-2023 to the Dept of Justice in Sacramento.

SF88 update maintenance: Greg Brown and Alec Gyorfi have been grinding off the rust on the launcher rails and then repainting them. They have 2 missiles on the launcher now. One suggestion is that we organize a grinding/painting party with Al Blank as soon as possible to address the rust problems. Al Kellogg will write a letter to Al Blank to push this idea forward and set a date.

Greg also says there are 3 working phone lines, 2 of which are fire alarms and 1 regular phone line. He says we need a dial phone which will be kept locked up for use in emergencies/911 calls. These phone lines need to be tested once a year and stickers placed on them. These phone lines are critical for safety purposes at the site. Gordon Lunn has a box of dial phones that he will take to SF88 after the weather clears up.

Al Kellogg states that the mower at SF88 has been repaired by replacing the water hose. The site has been mowed.

Russian SF-75 Dvina SAM information was sent by Paul McMullen along with his membership application. He was told by Al Kellogg that Ed Thelen may have more information on this missile.

No further new items were brought up for discussion.

Next virtual meeting will be scheduled for April 16, 2023 at 10:00 a.m.

Meeting adjourned at 10:55 a.m.
