It was great to see
each of you and your wives at Ryan's for the September
Club Meeting. There weren't as many members present as I
had hoped for. Maybe the high price of gas caused some
members not to attend. We had a good discussion with the
members present on several items. It was decided to
install four (4) pilot boxes at the field. initially we
are going to install 12' square patio blocks level with
the ground to designate the pilot boxes. At a later date
we will discuss putting netting around the boxes.
Several concerns were expressed that the pilots wouldn't
use the designated area's while flying, but personally I
don't think this will be a problem.Curtis had a paper
from AMA showing a recommended layout for the stations.
Norm and John Solon volunteered to install the pilot
boxes.Another item that was discussed was the "Modeler of the
Month" program. So far this year there has been only two
members selected for the "Modeler of the Month". It was
decided that if there wasn't a Modeler of the Month we
would post pictures of members aircraft. We would
include a description of the model, engine, how it flys,
etc. This was suggested by Mike Truitt. Mike also
suggested that we call it the "Tri-County Hanger" Thanks
Mike for the suggestion.Ed Stuart is our newest member. Ed has flown at the field
several times as a guest and is an accomplished flyer
who brings lots of experience and idea's to the club. As
always make Ed feel welcome when you see him at the
field.It was decided to suspend the "Wednesday Student Night"
until next spring. The days are getting shorter and
daylight saving time will end before long. I think it
was pretty successful for a new program. At times we had
four or five students on a Wednesday evening flying.
Thanks to the club instructors for coming out on
Wednesday evening and helping these students.
