January 25th Meeting

This is a reminder that our first meeting in 2020 will be Saturday January 25th at 9AM in the clubhouse. New for 2020:

  • Quarterly meetings instead of monthly.
  • Gene will be cooking full breakfast between 7:30AM and 8:45AM for $5.
  • Come see the unbelievable job of cleaning our kitchen and griddle that Gene and several members have done – you won’t believe it!
  • Rumor going around that there could be door prizes but you must come through the door and stay through the meeting to be eligible.

Hope to see you there…Benny and Tom

November Meeting Saturday 23rd

Do not forget this coming Saturday is the Alvin RC Club’s scheduled monthly meeting. There will be no meeting in December.

For those that missed out on the Silent Charity Auction held yesterday at the field, you missed the opportunity to bid on many great items and some wonderful flying weather.

I think the money raised will be very helpful for the Brazoria County needy. If you want to still donate, just drop the money in the box at the field (include a note) or give it to any officer or director.

Happy flying

June Membership Meeting

Do not forget the meeting this Saturday.  Ken White has volunteered to present the history of a model he will be donating to the AMA Museum. See the outline below..….everyone should make an effort to come see the model and hear about the flight.

  The Pewter Mule
                                                            by Ken White
The presentation will be about the history and flight of a model called the Pewter Mule, built by NASA engineers in the late 70’s to continue the proof of concept for the space shuttle orbiter.  It is a rocket which carried a 1/40th rc scale model of the space shuttle.  It used 24 D-12 Estes rocket motors.  The flight took place in 1979, 40 years ago.  The rocket was found at an estate sale by me and I recognized it immediately because I was there when it flew.  I acquired the model and have been working the last few weeks getting it accepted by the AMA Museum.  I just got the email from the museum committee that it was accepted.  I plan to bring the model to the meeting to discuss it’s history for those interested. 

December 1 Fun Fly Cancelled

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.
