We'll be holding a Sport Scale Contest on Saturday, July 11 at the field from 9am to 4pm. Cash prized for 1st, 2nd and 3rd plane. Details can be found here: http://www.mar-c.org/content/marc-sport-scale-contest-and-bbq.
With a new flying season fast upon us, I hope everyone is remembering to check any equipment that was stored for the winter carefully, cycle your radio batteries, and make sure any minor end-of season damage has been fully repaired. It's pretty surprising how many things can start to work their way loose, even on electrics.
Along with your prep work, I'd like to bring everyone up to speed on some recent developments, both good and bad:
There will be a general Club meeting at the field on Thursday, July 16, starting at 6 PM. There will be a BBQ and possibly a balloon bust if the helium tank and balloons are still in the shed. There will not be a formal fun-fly.
The Whidbey Island Radio Control Society has been invited by the Historic Flight Foundation to display our R/C aircraft at their facility during the celebration of the opening of the 2015 flying season. All types of R/C aircraft are welcome.
