We had a fair turn out at the monthly meeting on Saturday and the plane gods cooperated to make it a great flying day!
For the voting, there were only 2 positions that were contested – Safety Officer and Member at Large. I will remain in the President seat as no one threw their name in the hat. I pass on my personal thanks to all that went for a board position, remember that it is YOUR club and the way to make your voice matter most is to place a hand on the rudder and help steer the club for a year or two as a board member. Thanks Paul and Dennis for grabbing Pizza and Soda!
Your 2018 Board of Directors.
President: Brad Bender
Vice President: Randy Wynant
Treasurer: Quan Nguyen
Secretary: Ken Dresser
Safety Officer: Tony Blackhurst
Member at Large: Jim Bonnardel
Member at Large: Dennis Benitez
Member at Large: Carl Cox
It will be open flying (no contests) through December, so bring what you have! Start prepping your popwings, gliders, and FPV racers now, January will kick off the new contest season with a possible pre-Christmas fun event from the drone folks.
Over the next 2 weeks we should send blasts on how to get registered for the Jan 13th Holiday Party at the Harbor House. This will be for valid 2017 members only – no exceptions. Also, expect to receive the e-mail announcement when we are accepting membership submittals for 2018. Please wait until the new form is up and working before attempting to renew, do not print and mail in old forms as the format has changed. Dues for 2018 will be $50.00. Now is the perfect time to renew your AMA membership if you have not already!
Have a great month!
