The Fun Fly for next Saturday December 1, has been cancelled because the field is just too wet. However, since this event is held as a charity event, we are asking anyone who wants to donate to leave the donation in the box in the club house or with any officer of the club before December 8th. Be sure to mark the donation as a donation and not for drinks or supplies. If you cannot make it to the club house, just send Grady an email with the amount you would like to give and we will add it to the donations. We will present the money collected to the sheriff of Brazoria County for distribution to the needy for Christmas, just like last year.
We did get a good start from the people that attended todays meeting.

In August of 2018, Alvin RC Model Airplane Association lost one of its most dedicated and well-liked club members, Mike Vawters. As Vice-President and Safety Officer, he provided the club with invaluable leadership and expertise through the years. Alvin RC’s yearly Fun Fly, now named after him, is to honor him for his contributions to the club and to the hobby. We are continuing his idea of having this Charity Fund Raiser Fun Fly Event to welcome other clubs to our flying field just to have an enjoyable day of flying, camaraderie and to support a very worth while cause.
Mike you will missed by the club members and your friends in the local RC community.
