Message from the President
On behalf or the Kitsap Arcs Radio Control Society I would like to thank former member J. Rowley and his wife for their generous gift to our members. All planes found loving homes. We would wish the Rowley’s a safe and adventurous trip on their move to Arkansas after so long in Kitsap county. -- Duane B., President, Kitsap ARCS
New Runway - On Hold!
The runway work scheduled for the weekend of June 12th is on hold for now. The company we were purchasing the fabric from sold out before they processed our order. They say it will be three to five weeks before they receive a new supply. We will reschedule when we have a new delivery date from the company.
With the County being in Phase III, the time has come for us put down new runway fabric. We have purchased new fabric and it will be delivered to the field on Wednesday, June 9th.
Friday afternoon, June 11th, KC and Bruce will be conducting preliminary work on the runway. While they are working, there will be NO Flying allowed.
At 9:00 am on Saturday, June 12th, the field will be closed to all flying until the work is completed. KC will be renting a digging machine to create a ditch along the sides of the runway. We’re planning to peel back the existing sod along the edge, put the new fabric into it, and nail and bury the fabric edge into the ground.
We are requesting as many people as we can get to help us roll out, nail, and staple the new fabric on top of the old. We’ll be putting down three new rolls on the runway itself and also putting down new taxi ways. The excess will be retained for future patches. This is a major event that will affect us all in the future, so we need as many members as possible to show up and help.
For those that are planning to join us, please bring gloves, hammers, and shovels. Anyone that may have hand tamps for packing rocks and dirt, please bring those too. For those that are inclined, don’t forget to bring a hat. We will not be barbequing hot dogs and hamburgers so everyone needs to bring their own lunches, snacks and drinks. The Club will provide several cases of water.
This has been a long time in coming and it will be a welcomed improvement. Looking forward to seeing everyone out there, Duane & KC
Please report your May hours at the field for you and your guests to Paul Fleming.
