Sunday, May 18th, Fun Fly and Monthly Meeting
Location: Flying Field, NO Monday Meeting! (see notes below)
Some notes from the April Meeting
At the April meeting of Plane Crazy held at the field on Monday the 21st. The primary focus was field maintenance and the upcoming Fun Fly Day in May.
It is now officially mowing season and, as always, volunteers are needed for weekly mowing of the runways and pit area as well as parking. As we did last year we are holding a "sweepstakes" for those that mow. For every week that you help with this your name will be entered in a drawing to win up to two (2) $100 prizes (cash or gift certificates). Please sign up at the field to help keep it neat and flyable.
We also have had an issue with some minor vandalism... apparently some young hooligans decided to come up and overturn one of the set-up benches, empty a fire extinguisher, and steal the windsock on the picnic pavilion! Please keep your eyes open for uninvited youths up to no good at the field and report them.
Sunday May 18th will be our spring Fun Fly Day. All members and family are welcome!! Weather-permitting nitro and gas flying begins at 9am, early-birds can fly electrics earlier. Food will be served around 1pm. As always the club will provide burgers, dogs, buns, fixings, and drinks. Members attending are asked to voluntarily bring a side dish that can be shared. Please come and enjoy the fun!!!!
SPECIAL NOTE: The May business meeting for PCRC will be held at a special date/time.... immediately after we eat (around 1:30) at the Fun Fly on the 18th.
Saturday, August 16th, National Model Aviation Day
