Activities April 21-24


A couple of items related to the field use in the next few days.

Brett and George Vargo have some (8-10) friends from Seattle, Portland and Vancouver BC visiting this weekend. Please work them into the flight rotation if it gets busy. Also I need to point out that all pilots must have a spotter/buddy to both watch for full size aircraft and inform the pilot as flight activities around them as necessary. This is most important during landing to inform other fliers along with the pilot. Takeoff also needs to be announce.

Doug may also be doing irrigation testing, both with the big guns and the perimeter of the runway, mower shed, and along the parking lot fence. This should not take very long so be patient and Doug may also ask one of you to help inform him as necessary on how the sprinklers are performing.

On Monday, April 24, our PNNL members will be doing some testing with their new model aircraft that will be used for data collection. It may be fun to watch and talk with them about their project. Again, they will be working with the rotation flight order if necessary.

Have a good flying weekend.
