July 1st  -  Message from the President

Hello everyone,

I hope you all have a safe and Happy Fourth of July. Also during this time, please remember what this terrific Holiday is all about, and our forefathers that had the intestinal fortitude, faith and resilience to derive the idea and put everything into motion to see it through to give us this Great nation. We’ve had many events that have tried our resolve. We’ve bent, and weathered the storms, but we’ve never broken.

This pandemic is just another thing that we’ll rise to the challenge. I’m very confident that there will be a vaccine for this. Hopefully it will be soon. But until then, we’ll just have to exercise the best practices to keep us all safe.

Rob just sent me an article from the Kitsap Sun informing everyone that our potential move to Phase III has been put on pause due to increased new COVID-19 cases and several outbreaks reported in the County. It appears that our application will be halted until approximately 9 July, at which time it will be reviewed.

Based on that information, the competition and breakfast scheduled for this Saturday, 4 July, will be cancelled.

Because the Kitsap County application for Phase III will possibly be reviewed on 9 July, I’m going to hold off on a decision for the Club meeting and swap meet at the field until the 10/11 July. Everyone keep your fingers crossed that we’ll be able to meet at the field.

I hope everyone will stay safe and healthy until then. 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.
