Notes from our July meeting:

There will be a Work Day August 9th at 9:00 AM. Please help, and bring your weed eaters if you have them.
We still need people to sign up for mowing!
Notes from our June meeting:
At the June meeting of PCRC the main focus of discussion was the National Model Aviation Day Open House on Saturday August 16th. Up for discussion was various ways that extra money could be raised at the event for the Wounded Warrior Project. Among the ideas brought up was getting a local food vendor to set a cart at the field and donate some of the proceeds to WWP. In addition member Ron Alexander volunteered to put together an e-flight plane and radio combo that the Club could raffle off at the event. The idea of the Club selling food was nixed due to liability issues.
Also discussed was the recent vandalism at our field. Two windvanes have been stolen and one fire extinguisher emptied. Thanks were given to Lee Partlow, Lee Konopa, and Katie Parrill for the installation of a new and hopefully vandal-proof wind vane.
