Membership Chairman’s Report
Ralph Doyle, Chairman
If a person asks if he can fly and is not a member, be sure to ask to see his AMA card. The PayPal system is available for you to renew your membership. The current membership now stands at 112. Last year the total of the year was 110.
There was no old business. Remember the field is closed on Thursday’s when the mowers are cutting the grass.
President Grant spent a lot of time going over the AMA and club safety rules as is required to maintain our leader club status. There was a lot of discussion concerning the safety rules, in particular, taxiing in the pit area and flying before 9AM in the morning. Both activities are not permitted at this time for any model for any reason. Just a warning: if you cause damage to property while in violation of safety rules you may NOT be covered by AMA insurance and financial responsibility will lie with you. The club also has a legal requirement to follow the rules set down in the limited use permit that we have to adhere to. The next club meeting will be at the field July 13, at 7:00PM. Come early and get in a flight or two.
Steve Adams displayed a WACO Bi-plane that he obtained from out of state and was shipped to him via Greyhound bus! Ralph Doyle brought a new F-86 for a couple of flights before the meeting. Check page 52 of the June issue of Model Aviation and you will find Greg Tesson’s P-51.
