There were 15 members present at the meeting on the 15th of October. The current paid membership count is now 48 members, with Aidan Lara joining. Aidan is 14 years old. It is great to see a young person interested in our hobby.
November is election month at the meeting. Positions for all officers are open to those interested. All current officers have added their name to the ballot except for Vice President, so anyone interested in that position or any other should let a current officer know or be at the November meeting to be added to the ballot.
See the minutes in the Members Only section for more details on the meeting.
We will have our final post meeting picnic this Saturday the 19th. As always, all members and family are invited and the main courses will be for fajitas, provided by the club. Side dishes are always appreciated. Oh, and flying is also planned so bring a plane or 3.
A recent experience with a lipo battery has resulted in fire resistant charging bags being available at the charging stations. Please use them when you charge lipo batteries.
If you haven't heard, a 6 cell battery on a charger began popping and hissing (not normal) and was fortunately removed immediately to outside, where it was placed on the ground and within seconds erupted into a very impressive flame of 4 feet or so. Obviously that would not have been good on the wooden counter with the wooden cabinets above.
