Club Members,
 
We were contacted today by Lewis Poore and asked if we could come out next weekend to "Carolina Fest".  This is a large family reunion and gathering of friends at the Hunt residence here in Anderson.  They have hundreds of people at this event every year and they want us to join them as well.  I know that it is extremely short notice, but we need to try and make as good of a showing as possible.  They have 65 acres, live bands and plenty of BBQ.  They have asked if we can come and put on a static display and maybe even fly.  Jim Farley went to scope out the site and get a little more information this afternoon.  We need to meet at 11:00 tomorrow at the field and discuss who can go out next weekend and what we can count on for a display and pilots.  This could turn out to be a great opportunity for us to find an alternate flying site.  They have a grass strip that they have flown a Cessna 172 in and out of!  The field is located by Creek Side BBQ which is behind Publix and K-Mart.  The only houses around are those owned by the Hunt family.  This is another exciting chance for us to get out there and really promote our club and the hobby.  If you cannot make the meeting tomorrow, please let me know if you will be available the following weekend.  I will send out another e-mail after we gather more details.
 
Thanks,
 
Eric

 

Club Members,
 
Jim went by the site this afternoon.  They were getting ready to mow our runway and pit area.  They suggested that we not enter the field off of the private drive, but drive around off of the connecting road.  You will see the wind sock from the street and there will be banners up showing us where to enter and park.  A lot of people are already asking about when we are going to fly.  Do not forget that we are setting up between 10:30 and 11:00.  This way we can start flying around 12:00 or 12:30.  The word is also getting out that we are going to have trainers available for the crowd to fly.  It goes without saying that this is a great opportunity for us to build a lot of buzz around our club and hobby.  I look forward to seeing everyone this weekend.
 
Thank you,
 
Eric 

 

 

Club Members,
 
I wanted to thank everyone that came out this past Saturday and to those of you that will come to our event this Saturday.  We will start setting up between 10:30 and 11:00.  The event starts at 12:00.  We still need to determine how often we will be flying, but we have plenty of pilots committed to flying.  Jim, Andy and Mel have offered to have planes available to let people from the crowd fly.  I think that this will be a huge success.  I rode by the field last night and it is a little bit tighter than our field, but we will be able to put on a good show.  We had 27 planes lined up for the static display as of this past Saturday.  I hope that a few more show up this Saturday.  We will be setting the planes on the ground in the "pit area" that they are setting up for us.  We have been encouraged to bring our families out to this event.  They will be serving BBQ at 6:00.  Everyone needs to plan on coming out and be sure to wear your TCRC stuff.  If you have any questions, feel free to send me an e-mail or call me at 221-1018.
 
Thanks,
 
Eric
