Donated Grass Sweeper

in

Dave Temby has donated a grass sweeper to the club.  We have used this on the field a few times in the past month, and the results are very nice.  We can now pick up a lot of the grass that is usually left on the field from the mowers.  We won’t use this every time we mow, but will certainly use it for “special occasions” such as fly-ins and when the grass is particularly long or wet.  Thanks Dave.

Adopt A Table Results

in

We are happy to announce that we have some new flight tables at the field.  Cliff Filleau and Everett Dixon completed a table, Mike Powell and Carl Everitt completed a table and Bill Dickerson also completed a table.  With the two that were completed earlier this spring we now have five new tables.  The old tables have been “retired”.  Thanks to Cliff, Everett, Carl, Mike and Bill for the work on these new tables.

Field Maintenance

in

John and Ryan Badley took advantage of the good weather to finish their painting task from last Fall.  They sanded and painted the benches by the fence, and repainted the picnic tables.  John also used his pressure washer to clean the walls of the shelter, the concrete pad and the concrete pads under the benches as well.  It looks very nice.  Good work John and Ryan.

MAR/C PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE 2011—NUMBER 1

in

OF MAJOR CONCERN TO THE AMA, AND AERO MODELING IN GENERAL,  IS THE CONTINUING LOSS OF R/C FIELDS AND THE ASSOCIATED MOVEMENT OF R/C FLYING TO REMOTE AREAS. WE AT MAR/C  ARE VERY FORTUNATE TO HAVE A GREAT R/C FACILITY IN A VERY CONVENIENT LOCATION.
