More Meeting Notes

The following officer nominations will be voted on at the October meeting:
President – John PattonVice President – Jim AndersonTreasurer – Larry FitchSecretary – George VargoField Manager – Bob AndersonSafety Officer – Scott Page
A couple of notes on these positions. Jim will continue as web master, but we would like someone to begin learning the web site maintenance just to have backup.
The Safety Officer is more like a Safety Education position. The FAA and AMA are in the process of changing some of the rules of  model aviation. Scott will be keeping us up to date on changes in the rules and how they effect us. So, many thanks to Scott for taking this on.
In theory, you may make nominations from the floor next month, but these members have stepped up to lead your club and will appreciate your support.
Jim Anderson qualified as flight instructor. Congrats, Jim, and thanks for your contribution to the club and model aviation!
The next meeting is October 15, 7:00 PM at the KENNEWICK LIBRARY on Union. I will be sending out more reminders but note the change in time and venue.
Finally, at the club meeting we discussed changing the meeting nights to the third THURSDAY beginning in February 2020. This was a consensus of the members present, that seems to accommodate various schedules.
Another long email, but quite important for the club. 
Hope to see you at the field!

September Meeting Notes

Had a good club meeting yesterday, the wind calmed down, rain stopped, and Jim grilled some mean burgers and sausages!
Larry is still out of town so we don’t have an updated financial statement, but the club made about $350 on the pattern event, and the club is still in good financial condition.
Bob brought us up to date on the field maintenance. The Cub mower steering is shaky, not to say flakey, so we authorized Bob to get a steering kit. He is also planning to fertilize the field sometime after the irrigation is turned off, probably in November. He will let us know what help he will need.
Members are encouraged to use the “Flying Tomorrow” function on the web site. But you must subscribe with Jim before you will receive emails. 
There were about 5 students from the Hanford High Model Airplane Club at the field last Thursday. Bill, Lyle, and Scott were there as instructors. All the students got all the stick and FPV time they wanted. A nice bunch of students and enthusiastic about the hobby. Dave will check the school calendar and see if we can get in one more afternoon of flying before the weather turns. One of the students, Isaac, also attended the meeting. Nice young man and enthusiastic.

Jim has contact with a Boy Scout Troop leader. He will try to arrange a Saturday morning where the troop can visit the field and get a taste of model flying. More to come.
We will arrange to order TCRCM logo embroidered shirts and jackets for those who wish to purchase them. The shirts are golf type collared shirts, in white, red, blue, or green. They will cost about $25.
Light jackets will be about $30. Both shirts and jackets can have your name printed for an additional $5.So, let me know how many of each, size, color, and if you want your name on them.We need a minimum of 24 total items. The club will purchase and you reimburse the club.
Once we get enough orders I will buy them and give you an approximate delivery date.Jim is also setting up a function on the web site to get the info.
This email is getting long so I will send another email with more info from the meeting.
Hope to see you at the field!
John
