TRAINING HELPERS NEEDED

One of the most rewarding things you can do is to help newcomers.  You may be more qualified than you think!  

We need volunteers to be pre-flight inspectors, greeters, crew chiefs, and instructors. 

Tuesday Evening Training begins next week on May 4 from 5-8.

Please consider the gift of your time to the program, and help others into the hobby.

TENTATIVE - MAR/C July 2021 Swap Meet

Due to the occupancy restrictions placed upon Club events by the Park, the date for the Swap Meet is Tentative. Attendance at any event at the field is currently capped at 50 participants. The Board hopes that the number of attendants allowed will increase significantly by July making this event viable. The Board will evaluate the situation in early July and either confirm or cancel this event.
