Dates are set for upcoming events:

Notes from our May Meeting
This month's business meeting of PCRC was well attended due to some finally decent weather. The discussions started with the new FAA laws regarding model aviation and drones. Due to our proximity to Winchester Regional Airport drone flying is prohibited. Other RC flying must be conducted below 400' AGL. Talk was subsequently renewed about relocation if suitable land could be located.
The second topic for discussion is the next Fun Fly planned, weather permitting, for (this) Sunday the 22nd. Because of impending bad weather club prez Stephen Eisenbaugh said he would email on Friday whether the event will go on as scheduled.
Also discussed, was how to involve more youth in the club. A few members brought up organizations like Big Brothers / Sisters and the Boy / Girl Scouts as resources
Regular Monthly Meetings
All monthly meetings until fall will be held at the Flying Field.
