Picnics are Back
It is that time of year already and our monthly summer picnic season kicked off on Saturday, April 20th. Burgers and hotdogs with all of the condiments were provided by the club - side dishes of brats, potato salad, baked beans and desserts from members were welcome additions. The weather was perfect for flying with sunny skies and wind right down the runway. An excellent start to the picnics.
As always, fingers don't deal well with props on aircraft, with electrics being particularly dangerous for several reasons. Also, don't stand in front of a propeller while running up the aircraft if at all possible. Props do come off at times and are very sharp. Be aware of where you are in relation to spinning props - not just your own aircraft but all aircraft.
If you have been to the field lately you may have noticed the condition of the driveway from Towne Road to the parking area. We filled some holes last year with gravel, but the large amount of large vehicle traffic in and out and the annual weather pattern (read: rain) has made those repairs disappear. It is obvious that we will again need to do some maintenance on the driveway. A work party will be announced when we are ready. The main impact on the club is the cost, which could run into a few hundred dollars or more. Stay tuned for more...
Also rolling of the field will be done very soon.
