Scroll all the way down and click on JOE SMITH’s FRIDAY AFTERNOON DEMO 2011.

The pilot is a 17 year old boy.

Almost unbelievable.
I wonder how many he lost before perfecting this routine??

Some big time practice here.

New Leadership Site Planning Committee Meets

The volunteer site committees all met this morning over a great breakfast to brainstorm and gather ideas about how to arrange the new fences on the flying field to best serve the members of our club. We are excited to propose our ideas in an upcoming meeting. In attendance was our new club president, Ron Clemons, along with Bob Eldridge, Al Perkins, Chuck Spinks, Orv Steinmetz, Gregory Hullmann and Leroy Webb. Gene Mercer also stopped by to enjoy the always exceptional breakfast from the fine folks at the Stockholm Inn. Leroy brought the “Safety in Model Flight Operations” 3 page document that we should use as a guideline.  He also brought copies of “Recommended RC Flying Site Specifications” for us to look at. Our plan is to make some nice detailed drawings to share with the club at one of our upcoming meetings so we can all be involved in the decision making process.
