Jack has served this club with tireless dedication and enthusiasm, and has guided our affairs through some trying times with tact and diplomacy.  In addition to his four and one-half years as president, he has been a club member since 2004 , a board member since 2007 and has been a principal organizer of the  current MAR/C training program.

Wear Your Membership Card

In order to fly members must now wear their membership card (badge) on their pocket, pants or cap (not on anything around the neck). This will facilitate ready identification of those authorized to fly at the MAR/C field.

 

Anyone using the 72 MHz or 50 MHz band will put their AMA card on the frequency control board. All MAR/C guests will put their AMA card on the frequency control board.

The MAR/C All Members Survey has been extended through February 10, 2013 so that more MAR/C members can participate. Approximately 25% of the membership have taken the survey. It is very important that we hear from everyone. Otherwise, the Club’s efforts and resources may be incorrectly allocated to areas which do not truly reflect the real needs or desires of Club members.
