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.
