OLD BUSINESS

 

NEW BUSINESS

Mowing schedule is on line please sign up:

Mark Reminded every one to sign up to maw the filed. Its easy to do and if you got any questions or concerns just ask and he will help get you started.

Work Party is set for the 21st.   Lots of small projects and a couple of large ones to do.  No special skills needed.  

Main goal for the work party will be getting the Portipotty base installed and the old barn area rock free.  But lots of other projects available.  Ron asked about painting but it looks like it might be too wet yet.

Thanks again to Jason and his friend for the Tank event.   Keep your eye open for birdhouses and old doll houses that can be converted into battlefield cities.

Check out your local 2nd hand store or your favorite place to find a deal.

Crawler area needs a few to come up with ideas and help plan what to do with the hill side before it gets too unruly.  

No volunteers as of yet to head up the project

Car event- Like the mini quads?  Like the 3rd Wed evening of the month?  Ideas???

Some interest, Paul suggested that maybe a Saturday afternoon time frame may work

Scouts and model rockets?        Mark Annabelle made a couple of ESTES rockets to set off.  The first one launched just great with planning for the wind to land right at the end of the field.  Mid way through the return  to earth the wind stopped and the rocket landed short.  @nd rocket was launched with a raw egg in the payload bay.  Both the rocket and egg returned undamaged and ready for another flight.  Mark will contact the Rangers and see if they might be interest.

Announcements/Discussions/Info Sharing.

Ron mentioned that Sandy and him are looking to host another swap meet maybe late October.  He will keep us updated.

 

PROGRAM:  VR and addiction - Mark and Dart brought their Oculus Quest2 VR Goggles and let the group check them out.  You can play multi  player games like WWII over the Pacific, Driving games and way more.   Should be great for those days when you can’t get out. VR  is a very cool technology and it will be cool to see where it leads.
