No June Club Meeting


Our club meeting scheduled for Wednesday June 21, 2017 is cancelled. Our next event, which is our big community support event, is the ARC Fun Fly on Friday July 21, 2017. Be sure to mark that on your calendar. We will need a number of volunteers to help with set up and preparations, along with the buddy box flying for the children of the ARC. If you have a trainer with a buddy box setup that is in good working order and are willing to make it available please let me know.

I also want to inform all of you that Spring Green was rescheduled to apply herbicide next Monday, June 19, 2017 in the morning sometime. We cannot mow for 2 days before and 3-4 days after. If you do want to fly on Monday make sure the herbicide has fully dried before you enter the flying site. With the temperatures forecast it should dry relatively fast, likely in an hour or so.

We are tentatively planning to have a Board of Directors meeting the week of June 26, 2017.

Happy Flying

May 2017 Club Meeting


We will be having a club meeting this week on Wednesday evening at the Shilo Inn in Richland. The meeting is in the restaurant as it has been in past. The preparations needed for the pattern contest, which include some membership needs to help with the event, will be discussed. This is one of our main income events for our club. We will also want to discuss other events the club would like to conduct to raise operating income. We will also discuss the field needs and continue our discussion from last meeting on how to incorporate the new AMA guidelines.

Hope to see you there.
