Message from the President  -  July 29th

All,
I hope that everyone is still safe and healthy. And that you’ve been able to take the opportunity to still get out to the field and fly. We have certainly been having some very good weather to fly. As you’re well aware, the weather has been extremely warm and the field is very dry. As expected, the fire danger is extremely high. Please exercise caution. There are jugs of water at the Club’s bulletin board.

I am sure that you’ve been listening to the news and are aware that the Governor has put an indefinite pause on approvals for moving forward to any relaxations of the Phase approached.

With that decision, the monthly breakfast and competition events for Saturday, 1 August are cancelled. Sadly, the meeting at the field in August is cancelled and once again our meeting will be via ZOOM. That meeting information will be put out to the membership the weekend before the meeting.

On a positive note, I’d like to welcome our new members: Terence Simons, Matt Johnson, Grant Baker, and our new Junior member Cooper Hansen. If you see them, please introduce yourself and get to know them.

I do hope that you can all still get out to the field and fly and enjoy this outstanding weather. Stay safe and healthy. Thank you,
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.
