I hope everyone has been staying safe during this summer and has been able to get out to the field to fly as often as they can! I say it time and time again but flying therapy is the best therapy. :-)
Big news for Marymoor R/C: youth members Ian Morrow and Hailin Truman joined forces with member Bryan Connelly to create one massive yet incredibly light scratch build. The design ultimately became roughly based on a C-133 (long nose with a large tail) and was successfully maidened last month. It ended up being named M-133 (short for 'Mudgy', a name Bryan came up with for his numerous STOL scratch builds he's created).
New Airfield Hours: The airfield is open for flying for electrics only from dawn until 8am. The airfield is open for all flying (gas and electric) 8am to dusk.
The results from the windsock poll are in – effective July 1st we will have two windsocks on the infield. We had a total of 136 votes and the details on the poll results can be seen in the image above. Thanks to everyone for voting and to Brian Burk, Chris Johnson, and Zach Sweetser for helping move the socks to their final resting place. We also bought new windsocks that read much better in calmer wind and are excited to now have those on the flight line right before our unofficial “July 4th” start of summer date in the PNW.
We hope everyone has had a fun and safe experience getting back into flying again! We know that it is a great feeling to be back at the field and have our hobby brought back into our lives and want to thank our members for following our distancing guidelines.

Hello everyone – we hope you’ve all been keeping healthy during quarantine and getting some new builds ready for flying!
The March 2020 Club Meeting has been cancelled. We received notice from the school district that our meeting location has been closed for COVID-19 concerns.
Happy holidays! 2019 has been a great year here at the Marymoor R/C Club. We have seen some changes in leadership and board members and have made many great improvements to our field that will continue through 2020.
Well, it's been a while, so I hope you will forgive the length of this overdue message. I'm happy to report that our relationship with the park and our existing neighbors are strong, and I hope the club can maintain those relationships going forward.
