Monday, November 17 - Monthly Meeting
Our November meeting will take place at the Holiday Inn Express located behind the Sheetz Gas Station at Fox Drive and Route 522 (North West of town near Route 37 Bypass).
At the October meeting of PCRC a number of business items were discussed;
A members son owns a business that can get the Club some new polo shirts. Discussion was held regarding the type of shirt and it was decided that shirts like the previous batch were the most desired. Matt will follow up on this and he feels the projected cost per shirt will be under $20.
Nominations will be held at the next two meetings -- Nov and Dec -- for officers for next year. All existing officers have expressed their their ok with staying in their positions next year BUT new nominations are WELCOME (please note the capital letters there).
The next two meetings will be held back at the Holiday Inn Express (Sunnyside) in Winchester -- Rt 522N and Rt. 37. November's meeting is Monday night 11/17.

The topic of the January banquet was also discussed. It will be held on Saturday night the 17th of January at the Lee-Jackson Best Western Winchester -- Rt 50E and I-81. Start times TBA. The menu will be similar to last year's with a cost of $19 per person. It was previously voted we will not have a speaker at the event. There will be a 50/50 raffle as well as the drawing for the two (2) $100 winners of those that helped mow the field this year.
The subject of an alternate flying site was discussed should the FAA shut down our field based on their interpretation of the Law and our proximity to Winchester Regional Airport. At present we have no back-up plan should that occur. - S.E.
