Messages from the President
October 8th

All, good morning.

I hope that everyone is enjoying the last few days of summer. Yes, I know that we’re already 2-1/2 weeks into Fall, but it sure has been feeling like summer to me.

I’ve been watching the news, as I’m sure that all of you have been. I’m seeing that the Governor has been relaxing some restrictions, while enforcing many others. I can’t understand why Kitsap County hasn’t moved in to Phase III, but we still remain in Phase II. Due to the recent rise in COVID cases in Kitsap County and the recommendations for indoor meetings, the consensus of the E-Board is that the October meeting will be held via ZOOM.

We will have several subjects to cover for the upcoming year. Some of the subjects regard:
  1) Putting in new fabric for the runway next year. Or proposed options from the Planning Committee.
  2) Possible increase in dues.
  3) With the current situation, the Club meetings being held via ZOOM may be the norm for a while. Base on that, and the upcoming November nominations and December elections for Club Officers, we need to discuss how to get the word out to the membership for nominations, elections, counting of ballots, etc.

This year has been a real struggle for all of us. There’s a lot of opinions on ways ahead, policies and procedures for living in the COVID world that has imposed itself on all of us. Safety and consideration of our families and others remains paramount in any organization, and we’re no different. As President, I must listen to the inputs of others for any decisions regarding the Club. Please know that I value each and every one of you. I want to see you all at the field, enjoying our fantastic hobby for the years to come.

Thank you for your friendship and support. Please stay safe and healthy,
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.
