June Newsletter:

Dear Club Members;

The June club meeting was held at the Presidents house with a cookout prior to the meeting.

Discussion was held concerning repair of the cracks in the runway at the flying field. It was decided to clean out the cracks and fill them with concrete before sealing the runway. Jim Farley will pick up the concrete and bring it to the flying field.

The club workday is scheduled for Saturday June 4th starting at 9:00 AM

Ben Willis donated a four channel transmitter to the club. This is to be used in the club trainer. We still need four servo's to complete this project.

Norm build and donated to the club a table for the flying field. This table can be used by pilots to assemble and test their airplanes. We now have two of these tables at the flying field.

Thanks to John Solon for preparing the barbeque for the cookout. It was delicious!



PRESIDENT'S CORNER

What a great club and everyone is working together to make the club greater. Workday at the field on Saturday had fifteen people working on the runway. We had new members, old members and even a prospective new member at the field Saturday. This is what makes a club grow. Talking to the gentleman that came to the field to pick up an application I asked him how he heard about the club. He said that he was talking to someone at the hobby shop about an R/C club in the area. They told him about the Tri-County flyers and how they helped new flyers, so he had to come out and see for himself. He came out on Saturday hoping to see some flying, but instead he saw club members working together to improve the flying field. This is the kind of image that we want to project to people. By the way the person he was talking to at the hobby shop wasn't an employee of the shop, but a member of another club.

Here are a couple of definitions to add to your R/C Dictionary

PROPELLER: A rotating knife that cuts holes in the air, which the aircraft falls into. A handy device to cut skin away from your fingers.

O.S. : Initials of the first two words that an R/C pilot says when loosing control and crashing his aircraft.

FAIL SAFE: An option on PCM radios that allows a pilot to choose whether to crash near him, or a long way away.

FUEL TANK: Plastic bottle, designed to leak when placed in totally inaccessible locations. A temporary storage place for chemicals before they saturate your aircraft.

INVERTED FLIGHT: A method of landing to save wear and tear on the tires.
