Minutes for September 2016 Meeting
This meeting was held September 17 at the Christmas field. The meeting was called to order at 10:10 AM by president Raed Elazzawi. Eleven members were present, and one guest.
Minutes of the August meeting were read and approved.
The Treasurer Report was not available.
Previously, a member noticed that the lock belonging to the rocket club was not properly located in series with the other locks on the gate(s), which would prevent access by the rocket club. Members were asked to pay attention when applying the Buzzards’ lock such that the rocket club is able to access the field.
Thanks were given to all who participated in the recent runway area work party.
Help will be needed to run the Tangerine contest in Ocala on 18-20 November. Members are encouraged to help out and fly, even for just one day.
Sailplane Day is planned for December 17, 2016 at the Christmas field, the goal of which is to promote the RC flying sport in the Orlando area. Success of the event will require heavy participation by club members.
Runway area grass will be cut shorter to improve surface smoothness. Bill Staley is working this and plans to leave a mower from the Rocket City club at the field.
Upcoming contests were mentioned:
– ALES at Christmas field on 8 Oct
– FSS 4 at Gainesville on 22-23 Oct
– Tangerine at Kenny World (Ocala) on 18-20 Nov
The meeting was adjourned at about 10:30 AM.
