Grizzly Bear IMAC Contest Postponed

The IMAC Grizzly Bear event has been rescheduled to June 8,9, and 10 due to bad weather conditions on the previously scheduled weekend.

Please mark your calendars.

I appreciate the work of all of you who helped prepare the field, volunteered for various tasks, and contributed to the planning.

This event now comes two weeks after the Pattern Contest, scheduled for Memorial Day weekend.

The board knows this will be a challenge to us to pull off two events in two weeks. But the benefit to the club is significant.

So, please mark your calendars and let us know where you can assist.

Thanks,

John

General Update For Upcoming Events

If you haven't seen the Web Site lately, please take a look. Steve, has added some graphics for upcoming events. Thanks, Steve!

The next one is the spring clean up on March 17. The weather seems to be improving so it should be a good day.

One event a couple of weeks later, April 7 and 8, is the IMAC Grizzly Bear Event.

This event is of importance to the club for a couple of reasons. One is that our field is one of the better ones in the northwest for this type of contest. So they asked specifically to be able to use it. A time for us to show off!

The other reason is a fund raising opportunity for the club. Last year, this event, two pattern contests, and the heli fly in generated over 40% of club net income. The balance is dues of course. So, you can see how these events contribute to the success of the club.

For the IMAC event we agreed to provide lunch for the two days. To accomplish this we will need about 7 members each day to assist. This will include taking money, setting up, getting the food, serving, and clean up.

I would ask each of you look at your calendars and see where you can help. You don't need to sign up for both days, just tell us where you can help and on which day or both. Also, during the week prior to the event we'll want to make sure the field is spruced up.

The March club meeting is the 20th at Shiloh Inn, Richland, at 7:00PM. We will discuss more details then, but please be thinking about it. Lyle will be organizing so please let him know how you can help.

By the way, it's not all work. You can enter sportsman's class without having to meet IMAC aircraft minimums.

Plus, just watching will show you another area of our hobby you may not be familiar with.

Looking forward to seeing you soon and a fun flying season!

John
