Covid Update

We are pretty much back to a normal schedule concerning weekly flying and monthly meetings. I am not aware of any members who have had Covid directly, although several people have commented that they had family members who had contracted it. Fortunately, all were relatively mild cases and seem to have recovered quickly. People at the flying field continue to make their own decisions concerning masks, social distancing, etc.

Good Flying Weather Coming!

Well, if you have been out to the field lately you’ve probably noticed the grass greening up! It appears we are on the verge of Spring popping out, so get those batteries charged up and get out to the field for a little quality leisure time. See you there!

Annual Club Work Day

Saturday 20Mar is the planned annual club work day, with 27Mar as the alternate date in case of rain. We plan to meet at the field at 9:00 AM and to be through by about noon at the latest. All members are welcome to participate if they have an interest, however, there is certainly no requirement to do so. The field is actually in fairly good shape and so no real big work items remain to be taken care of.
