May 28th  -  Message from the President

Kitsap County is still in Phase I of the Governor’s Reopening plan. However, as of today, they have applied for an early advancement to Phase II. As a result, the Club’s activities for June are cancelled. There won’t be any competitions, gatherings or group activities until the County is in Phase III. If and when we enter Phase III, we will immediately consult everyone involved to attempt to get the Winter Build Maiden Day scheduled as soon as possible.

Because of the success of our last Club ZOOM meeting, we will be having the 9 June Club meeting via ZOOM.

I really want to thank everyone for their efforts to observe our Safety requirements while at the field. Everyone has been exemplary in their conduct. I’m really looking forward to the days in which we can finally gather and kibitz and just general BS with everyone. Take care. Be careful and be safe. KC

May 27th  -  Message from the President

Yesterday I was notified that there was Kitsap Sherriff activity around our field and that the Electric Arming table was displaced on the field with gun casings on the table and on the ground. I went out to the field and discovered two Sherriff’s vehicles parked in front of our gate. One was a K-9 unit (empty) and another was occupied. I told the deputy what I’d heard. He advised me that the church across the street from the convenience store on the corner had been broken into and that the suspect was trying to evade the manhunt. I told him about the condition of the field and he advised me that it was safe for me to go investigate.

When I arrived at our site, I found the electric arming table setting parallel to the taxi way and there was evidence that it had been used as a target stand in which some fruit/vegetables had been placed on the table and had been shot. There was pieces on the ground. Also there was about 8 – 10 shell cases on the ground and on the table. I relocated the table and picked up the brass. I didn’t have any bags or means to clean up the debris. I did walk around the cover structure and the conex box and did not notice any damage. If anyone does discover any other damage, please pass this information to the Club Officers. Thanks, KC

April 29th  -  Message from the President

Effective May 5th, we have been granted permission by the Kitsap County Parks Department to open the field for individual flying. To comply with the recommended guidelines, and as recommended by the Club’s Executive Board, fliers will be required to wear masks at all times, regardless if they are flying or not. When at the field, it is critical for us to maintain our ‘Social Distancing’. Additionally, there will be no gatherings of 10 or more people allowed. If you drive up, and there’s more than 10 people flying or under the cover, please remain in your car until someone leaves.

These are unprecedented times that we’re living in, and this virus has necessitated drastic measures to keep us all safe and healthy. I strongly request that everyone follow the above guidelines. Hopefully, they will not be required for long and we can eventually return to our normal operations. Thank you for your patience and 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.
