Hangar Renovation Status
Bob is demolishing the floor in the movie theater and will clean out the movie theater area and the area that will be the flight retail center in the coming weeks. Construction is on hold until his supplies arrive since the local hardware store is out of 2x4s.
February Warbird Operators Conference in SEA
Bob encouraged anyone on the board who is able to attend the conference to do so and try to make some contacts in the Warbird Operators community.
Yakutat Christmas Bazaar
Bob and Ryan had a booth at the Bazaar to advertise the museum and talk about what we’re trying to do. Many people were interested in talking to them. But the cookies were really good.
Bob sold his share of Italio River Adventures and will now be able to dedicate more time and money to the hangar project, the fueling and storage business and the Foundation.

Negotiations with Yak-tat KWAAN
