Phantom Trail Riders Meeting Minutes 11/06/18


 - Land owner agreement acquisitions have been assigned to members
      Tom has 2 agreements, need continued efforts by Don, John and Mark
      Kyle Anderson would like help with 45S.  Ike, Don, and John have agreements to work on.
           Ike mailed out 3 requests on Jan 6th.  Have received one signed agreement so far.
 - John will update officer e-mails on AWSC roster so appropriate information is getting to correct people.  A phone call to the AWSC will be required since they cannot be updated on the website.
 - Drag Maintenance - John will contact Dan Byers to Set Work Evening to address issues
      New pin / bushing is needed on tongue. 
        Drill larger hole to make round again & size to fit a hardened bolt or bushing. 
     Need to inspect rear wheel lift.  It appears to be low and should be increased.
        We looked at the rear lift. Determined that a 2” longer cylinder should be used and the upper bracket raised. The lower pivot points (3 plc) need to be drilled larger by the same method as on the front. 
 -  Tractor Service

       Need to check engine oil and see if it should be changed
