  • Fun Fly – It was tentatively decided that we hold a Fun Fly for members only on April10, 2010. There will be additional discussion regarding the format at future meetings.
  • Civil Air Patrol (CAP) – George Estes mentioned that a number of members of the CAP were interested in RC flying and would like to receive lesions from our Club instructors. After some discussion it was concluded that this would be a good way to get younger people interested in the Club. It was decided that if we provided instruction that there would be an expectation that the recipient would join the Club after a few lesions. This raised the question as weather we should offer CAP members a special membership rate or an annual fee that covers all CAP members. It was concluded that some type of special arrangement would make sense to attract younger members but the details of an arrangement will be decided at the next meeting.


  • Next Meeting- The next meeting will be held at 6:00pm on Thursday February 4th at the Anderson County Airport.
