Reminder to keep your physical distance at the Field

There has been a surge in the COVID 19 cases and hospitalizations in Texas – up to 1500 cases per day, which is a 51% increase from the previous week.  Don’t let your guard down – this virus is very contagious and as you know can be deadly.  At the airfield it’s important to keep your Physical (social) distance.  Tom Y

Runway reseal June 22

Greetings all…..
At last week’s meeting, it was decided to plan a work day on June 22 to reseal/patch the runway. The process has actually already begun with the killing of the weeds in the runway. 
We need everyone who is able to sign up either by replaying to this email or signing a sheet at the club house. (could someone start the sheet in the morning?).

Remember all the fun of resealing the runway? It evolves moving around 55# buckets, power mixing the sealant with a large power drill and attachment, dumping the buckets of liquid asphalt on the runway and spreading it out with large squeegees. If that is not fun, I don’t know what is…

There will be water supplied, but no beer…
Sign up if you can…
Thanks Tom Johnson

Last Flight Mike Vawters

by Benny Behrens October 28, 2018

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.
