September Meeting Items There were 9 members present at the meeting on the 18th of September. 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 flyin brought in approx. $4200 for Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County. Some of this came from the sale of items won during the raffle that the winners requested we sell and add the additional funds to the pot. Thanks to those that chose to support hospice even after the event was over. The picnic was held on Saturday the 22nd and featured fajitas (chicken and beef) and all of the trimmings. You missed out if you weren’t there - it was great. Thanks to President Velardi and his wife for prepping the meats and to all of those that brought food items to share - it was greatly appreciated by all. We are holding out for good weather in October to have another picnic this year. Speaking of October, that is the month for nominations for the club officer positions to be made, so if you want to run let one of the current officers know or come to the meeting on the 16th of October to put your name on the ballot. The elections will be held at the November meeting for your 2019 officers.
Safety Items No new issues were discussed at the meeting - a good sign for sure.

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)

2018 Fund Raiser is in the Books The 2018 fund raiser for Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County has come and gone. In spite of the downturn in the weather from the previous few days the event was another success and brought in a respectable amount (approx. $4200 as of now and expected to grow with late donations). The raffle prizes were great, with a good mix of rc and non-rc related items. We even had a kids only drawing for some dedicated kid items. Thanks to Bonnie Williams and a few other members that helped staff the raffle ticket sales table in Hangar 15 (which was made available to us by the owner and was greatly appreciated).
