Monday, October 20 - Monthly Meeting (At Chuck's House)
Our October meeting will take place on the 20th at Chuck's house in Raven Wing. - S.E.
Notes from our September meeting:
At this month's business meeting of PCRC there was limited discussion of past and future events.
President Steve Eisenbaugh announced that an article has been submitted to our AMA District IV V.P. covering the success of our NMAD Open House. Look for a possible article in the AMA Magazine in a couple months.
Discussion was also had regarding some members flying model aircraft at the field without the required AMA identification sticker. It was decided an email needed to go out to club members to remind them of this rule.
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.
National Model Aviation Day - THANK YOU!
A big THANK YOU to all of you that came out and contributed to the great success of our NMAD/PCRC Open House for the Wounded Warrior Project. It was an amazing success! The public had a great time and (since I was doing parking detail) many said thank you and said they planned on coming back the next time. - S.E.
Regular Monthly Meetings
All monthly meetings will be held at the Flying Field until Fall.
