MAR/C September Bulletin
Items of general interest from the August Board of Director's meeting:
MARC Club Meeting revised dates. MARC General meetings will be on September 24, October 22 and November 12 all at 7:00 PM, at the Lake Washington School District Building. Thereafter, in 2016, we will revert to the usual third Thursday of the month.
Training. Steve Lenz will not lead the Training Program next year, but will continue to participate as an instructor. Doug Hales volunteered to assume that role. Many Kudos to Steve for his great contribution!
Aircraft Restraints. The Board reaffirmed that appropriate aircraft restraint devices must be employed during engine or motor ground operation and that all pilots are ultimately responsible for the proper restraint of their aircraft at all such times.
Battery Disposal. A pail of salt water will be placed in the charging station to receive discarded LiPo batteries for safe discharging. We will research proper ultimate disposal of such discharged LiPo batteries. LiPo batteries should not be dumped into the trash barrels on the field. Batteries of other kind, NiCad, NiMH or Lead Acid should be disposed of by the owner.
Increased Charging Station capacity. The Park will install new 80 Amp incoming power supply to our charging station in the near future.
Tailgate Swap Meet, Saturday September 12.
MARC General Meeting, 7:00 PM, Thursday September 24, LWSD Building.
