There were 22 members present at the meeting on the 15th of January.
We currently have about 20 paid members for 2019 (a lot of you renewed at the meeting). Member dues are now due, so it is time to re-up your membership. Also remember to stay current with AMA if you want to fly at the field. Check you membership status with AMA as the membership term is for one year from your sign-up date.
Good news - no safety issues have been identified in the past month.
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...
Airport Days - Summer 2019
The Olympic RC Modelers have invited us to join them at the William R. Fairchild Airport in Port Angeles for the Airport Days event. This is the annual event at the airport that brings in the Collins Foundation and their WWII bombers and fighters. The r/c area will be for both static and flight, so the more aircraft the better. Details are still being worked out and we will keep you up to date as we learn more. This event is scheduled for late June so we all have plenty of time to plan for it.
Christmas Dinner 2019
No, you haven't been in a coma for several months, we just need to decide on a place to hold our 2019 dinner so that we can get it reserved. Several locations are being considered. We are also planning for it to be a joint dinner with the Olympic RC Modelers (P.A. club). Other venues besides the Mariner will give us a bit more time to socialize and might even provide bar service and special menus if we can commit to a large enough group. Any ideas are welcome.
