July Meeting Items There were 9 members present at the meeting on the 18th of July. The July picnic will be held on the 22nd. The main items will be provided by the club. Feel free to bring a dish to share and drinks as you prefer. The club members present at the meeting voted to spend $375 for half of the cost of a new, larger port-a-potty, as well as up to $200 to build a small privacy fence around it. The remainder of the cost of the port-a-potty will be paid by members. A donation from other members is welcome, with any amount over the cost going into the Hospice fly-in donation. The future of the current port-a-potty is not decided as of yet. The club has received a trailer from the estate of Steve Moran. Ed Velardi was given the go ahead to sign the necessary papers to obtain title to the trailer on the clubs behalf. The trailer will be available for use by the membership, with a sign out sheet to keep track of who has it, when it was taken and will be back and where it is. The grass and weeds are currently not the only things on the runway. The irrigation pipes are across the runway, so be careful. The pipes are thin walled and can be (and have been) punctured by propellers. The pipes should be removed soon. Until then, fly at your own risk.

Time left until our annual fly-in for

Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County

August 26-27, 2017

Fun Fly-in Fund Raiser for Hospice The Sequim RC Aeronauts and the Olympic RC Modelers (Port Angeles, WA) are co-hosting the 7th annual Fun Fly-in Fund Raiser in support of Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County. The dates are August 26-27, 2017 from 9 am to 3 pm each day. Lots of pilots and aircraft will be flying demonstration flights all day so you won’t miss the action if you come later. There will be seating available so if you want to stay all day you are welcome. There will be raffle drawings during the day for great prizes donated by local businesses, out of area businesses, and individuals. You don’t need to be present to win - but it is more fun to carry home your prize that day. Buy as many tickets as you like - no limit - in fact the more the better for Hospice and for your chance to win! One hundred percent of the proceeds goes to Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County. This event is being held in conjunction with the Olympic Peninsula Air Affaire and Sequim Valley Fly-in. So if you like aircraft or just want to spend a great day with the family enjoying all the excitement there, be sure to come to the Sequim Valley Airport, 468 Dorothy Hunt Lane, Sequim, WA on August 26 and 27, 2017. We’ll see you there!
Safety Items Don’t taxi though the pilot area. The pilot area is located from the northern pit fence and extends the length of the eastern side of the runway. Planes should be carried or controlled by a hand on the model through this area as well as the pit area. If you must take a running gas or glow plane though the pilot area, let any pilots know your intentions and give them a wide berth. The club will monitor the situation to see if rule changes are necessary.

Airplanes are airplanes.

Right?

So it is no surprise that many of our club members have or have had a connection to full scale aviation. Pilots of all ratings, aircraft mechanics, certified flight instructors and aeronautical engineers are some of our member’s aviation related backgrounds. (photo by John Schuy)
