Messages from the President

November 23rd

Hi everyone,

I’m sitting here watching Monday Night Football pulling for Tom Brady for the first time…ever! I’m wanting him to beat the Rams!

As we approach Thanksgiving Day, we will all pause to give thanks for our blessings. I feel that we’ve all been very blessed because, to the best of my knowledge, none of our members have contracted this awful COVID virus.

Each and everything we always took for granted has been manipulated and completely changed. Travel, shopping, dining out, enjoying our hobby and even visiting our friends have all changed. And, most of all, our normal Thanksgiving Day dinner with friends and family will not be the same. For many of us, we’ll have our dinner with our immediate family, and if we visit extended family members, it will be via phone or a virtual meeting.

My wish for you is that you and your family will all be safe and healthy for this week and the rest of the year. Blessings to you all,
KC

All,

As you’re more aware, this year has been so bizarre! Normally, we’d be discussing renewal at the membership, as well as taking renewals at the meetings. However, we’re not having normal meeting. But we still need to renewal our memberships.

I’m asking Greg to send renewal forms to everyone. This will ensure that all members receive a form. If you’re inclined, you can fill out this form and send it back to Floyd along with your check. If you decide to pay your dues using the PayPal link on our website, you still need to fill out, sign and mail this form back to Floyd. Upon receipt of your payment and form, Floyd will mail back to you a receipt for your dues, along with the 2021 stickers for your AMA cards.

Our membership dues for the 2021 Season will be $60.00.

Thank you everyone for being understanding,
KC

Learn to Fly - Free!

Free RC Flying Lessons

     The Introductory Pilot Program is free to the trainee. It gives the beginning pilot an opportunity to learn how to fly using a club-supplied airplane and transmitter.
     The instructor's transmitter has full control of the aircraft but at any time, with the flip of a switch, allows the trainee to pilot the airplane with a second transmitter.
     It's a great way to learn about model airplanes while getting hands-on flying experience.
     For more information, contact the Head Flight Instructor.
