May Monthly Meeting Cancelled

Since this month’s meeting fell on a holiday weekend, the meeting is being cancelled. The field is still open for flying, so come on out.
An important note, June begins a new club year. As such, dues need to be paid this month to stay current. Please see Grady or any other club officer to pay your dues.

 

Wednesday Night Flying – 4/9/18

This Wednesday night 4/9/18 our Master Chef will entice us with a good ol’ Texas BBQ. Brisket of only the finest type will be used in this secret recipe. Dinner includes all the fixin’s you can think of plus a special potato salad that is sure to convert any potato haters (if there are any).
Dress is casual
Valet parking available
Come early and watch planes crash!
Seating is limited. First come first serve.
Live music by Bands Unlimited had to cancel so no live music this week.
Don’t forget to tip your waiter.
So come on out, bring $5 and have the best time you can possibly have on a Wednesday night.
This is Mark and I approved this message.

We Need Your Help

Some are petitioning Congress to eliminate the Special Rule for Model Aircraft – also known as Section 336. Section 336 has allowed AMA to manage our members and fly safely and responsibly, as we have for over 82 years. Without Section 336, members would be required to take an FAA in person 60 question aeronautical test, pay for an FAA remote pilot license, and face other unnecessary restrictions. Losing the Special Rule would be a devastating blow to our hobby.

This is a critical moment to let your elected representatives know the importance of the Special Rule for Model Aircraft and the role of community-based organizations such as AMA.

Our community has operated safely for decades.  Model aviation has played a critical role in the innovations of new technology and encouraging young people to pursue an interest in science and technology fields. More than that, this long-standing hobby has been passed down from generation to generation and is a tradition for many American families.

Wednesday Night Flying

“Each Wednesday night during Daylight savings time (now) we have a master chief cook up a meal. We show up anytime, fly, eat about 6 pm ish then fly ’till dark.
You don’t have to fly
You don’t have to eat
You do have to have a good time!
So come on out rain or shine(we can eat inside(, bring $5 for the best dinner you’ll get all night, and have a great Time!!!”
