With the work party canceled there has been a list of projects posted on the club web site.
We did have the glider event despite Covid 19 and a rather blustery day. Bryan Reightley took first place, James Stewart place second and Mark Weeks placed third. Everyone seemed to have a great time while practicing our social distancing.
The board has lifted the temporary membership moratorium, the Web site has been updated and it looks like we will have a couple of new members soon.
Mark and Dart re-configured the car track to add some hairpin turns and hopefully it will help improve our driving skills. There is still more to be done and some new ideas are being floated around such as a crawler track and even a RC tank area. Keep your eyes and ears open more to come.
Jim Stewart brought his tractor with brush hog out last week and did some field mowing. He had to stop due to wet ground but with what he has already done the area should dry out soon so we can finish. When you see Jim make sure you tell him thank you.
Ron Swift reported on the Summer Swap meet that due to Covid 19 has been rescheduled for September. Stay tuned for more information.
Mark brought up the resent letter from the AMA regarding the FAA and then new proposed rules. He made a motion to have the club look into what will be involved in having our field registered and a height variance with the FAA. Motion passed. The club was asked if anyone wanted to take on the project. Chet Blake was volunteered and accepted. He will keep us informed as he finds things out.
PROGRAM:- Builders contest: Fred Guilfoyle, Ward Emigh and Jim Stewart all entered planes. It was really tough to judge as each builder is highly accomplished and did super work. Ward 1949 Ben Buckle Falcon took first place, Fed took second with his 1959 twin Lizzie, and Jim took 3rd with his Kit built Oly II electric Glider.
Show and Tell: Steve Higgins brought a 3d printed plane from Planeprint.com. It really looks good and we all cant wait till we see it fly. I am sure he had peeked some interest for some of the club who owns 3D printers.
