Club Christmas Dinner The annual Christmas dinner will be at the Mariner on Tuesday, December 18th. The date was chosen as it is already reserved for us as our regular club meeting date so the Mariner didn’t have to juggle reservations and neither do we. We will start the festivities at 6 pm with a ‘cocktail hour’ for socializing before we start the dinner at 7 pm. The full menu will be available. If there is any special offering from the Mariner we will let you know when we find out.
AMA Club 1766
October Meeting Items There were 8 members present at the meeting on the 16th of October. We currently have 52 paid members for 2018 including two new members this month. The head was pumped and is in great working order. The extra club picnic was held on Saturday the 20th. The forecast was for good flying weather and didn’t disappoint. Neither did the food. Who knows, maybe November will see another extra picnic. October is the month for nominations for the club officer positions to be made. No one added their names to the ballot for 2019, so the current officers have all agreed to remain in their positions if need be. It still isn’t too late to get involved in your club by running for an officer position. Let a club officer know via email to be added to the ballot. The elections will be held at the November meeting for your 2019 officers.
Safety Items With the coming of cooler weather comes bulkier clothing, so be aware of the proximity of your clothing to your prop. Make sure to keep jackets or vest secured and exercise care when working around the propeller. Bulkier sleeves can add a few inches to the size of your arm.

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)

Battery Charging Update With the ever increasing number of electric powered aircraft comes a corresponding increase in the battery charging going on at the field. It is becoming common to have all 8 charging stations in use at any one time. There have been two solutions put forth: 1 - charge only one battery at a time, and promptly remove it when charged (your name on your battery would let other members notify you when charging has completed as the beep indicators can be hard to hear over running engines and other noise) and 2 - the club will purchase another (third) charger. We are looking into a higher output charger to speed up charging of the increasingly larger batter capacities. Until then please be aware of the charging needs of others and act appropriately.
