Fun Fly Dec 2016

Tim Haskins

Tim Haskins, long term member and Officer of Alvin RC Model Airplane Association (ARCMAA) passed away in June of 2016. Tim was an old fashion kind of modeler which included kit building and scratch building. He enjoyed all types and sizes of airplanes including WWI and WWII warbirds and had recently gotten into and was enjoying helicopters.

Tim was a common face at Alvin’s field and many events at other fields in the Houston area. He was known by many members of the Tim Haskinslocal RC community and was always willing to help others as an instructor or simply by providing friendly assistance when needed. Tim was President of ARCMAA for several years and was instrumental in a major expansion of the club’s clubhouse.

Tim will be missed by his friends at RC flying fields around the Houston area.

Runway sealing work party – Saturday July 23rd

Special message from Benny….
Saturday July 23rd is the date of our normal monthly meeting but we have decided to put together a work party to seal the runway. Our plan is to start at day break and then how long it will take to complete the asphalt sealing will obviously be directly related to how many volunteers we have show up. As in the past the pay is not real good but the club will provide all of the water you can drink! 
 
There are currently no special plans or needs for the July monthly meeting so we can simply play it by ear that day if we actually have a meeting or not.
 
If you can be there it would be appreciated if you could let us know so we know how many to plan on. If you have any questions let us know…Thanks in advance for your help….Benny
