July Meeting Notes

We had a pleasant if warm evening for the meeting at the field.
Larry reported the on club finances. There is over $12,000 in various cash instruments. Cash in bank is adequate to meet expected expenses for the remainder of the year.Jim is out of town, but we are encouraged to use the “Flying Today” feature on the web site. This is a new feature this year and can let everyone else know who plans to fly that day. Check it out and sign up for it!Bob was also out of town, but the field is in great shape. The weed treatment killed off most of the clover and the dense turf is crowding out what is left.You are encouraged to take advantage of Rob’s offer for flight instruction in the evenings. While it didn’t work out to schedule a specific time each week, Rob is available to arrange mutually convenient times. Thank you, Rob.We reviewed the ARC Fun Day. It was a success because of the great participation by members and wives. It was good to see many new members taking part, also. Great club work!The AMA has designated Saturday, August 17 as National Model Aviation Day. We are planning a fun fly and lunch. Invite family and friends to come out and see what our hobby is about. We have two trainers with buddy boxes so they can get some stick time. The lunch as planned will be hot dogs provided by some members, but everyone is encouraged to bring a side dish to share. More to come as the time gets nearer.We will also use the occasion to remember our flying friends who have passed. We share thoughts, stories, and lies about those who have encouraged us and contributed to where we are today. It was suggested that the club look into getting golf shirts or jackets with the club logo. More to follow.The next meeting will be August 20, again at the field. We will be planning the pattern event which is September 1 and 2, Labor Day weekend. Be thinking of where you may be able to contribute. This is a club fund raiser.
Looks like some good flying weather coming up. Hope to see you at the field soon!!

Arc Fun Day

This is the most awesome club and group of guys around! 

A couple of the guys that have been doing this much longer than I said it was the most pilots, planes, club members, and wives participating to bring a wonderful day to the special needs kids in our community.

We had at least two planes in the air and sometimes three flying at all times. So many of you participated I cannot name everyone who contributed to the  success of the day.

However, we had a new activity this year: Scott Page brought his FPV plane with head sets for 5 kids to see from the sky! Thank you, Scott.

So, I hope each of you takes a moment to reflect on how you brought a measure of happiness to someone else today and how rewarding it is to be part of an organization that takes the time to think of others.

Well done, TCRCM!!
John
