Final 2014 President’s Message
Happy Holidays to all of you lucky modelers that belong to one of the premiere electric clubs in the nation. 2014 has been good to us at SEFSD on the Bay. We have made notable progress to improve the flying experience at SEFSD in 2013 and now in 2014 we have vastly improved the parking lot surface, installed security pole barriers where needed along the road into the pit area. We see improved signage everywhere you look. Add to that our excellent table construction project led by Chief Griffin and his construction team completed, by the way, at a very reasonable cost. Jim Bonnardel and a few helpers have accomplished the near impossible goal…… by grooming a simple dirt runway to excellence while staying way below budget using a smart measured approach.
Jim, as VP of Fun, has cooked up a large variety of fun events open to all members throughout the year. “Something for everyone” has become the standard! We have had a chance to learn about, explore and get involved with FPV flight, quadcopters, multi-rotor technology. For sure you will be seeing much more of this aspect of electric flight. In fact, SEFSD members younger that 35 might want to look at the career possibilities in the sUAS industry as it has a huge future. For example, we have 3 D robotics company, Raytheon Company, Qualcomm plus two universities using our field for research and development. This represents a very real win win for SEFSD and these entities. 2015 will see a continuation of our sponsorship of Hi Tech High in classroom aeronautical projects and will offer test flying and training in radio control flight at our Site near Seaworld in January of 2015.
The improving quality of ready to fly equipment that abounds on the internet and elsewhere (Discount Hobby) makes it so enticing to get involved in Radio Control flying. There is no doubt in my mind that all of this just mentioned will play very well when we (SEFSD) eventually need to approach the ruler of our air space, Lindberg Air Traffic Control tower. It is a given that this will come and I feel we have never been better prepared for this potential challenge to our flying site longevity. Our status as a Gold Leader Club (thank you Frank Gagliardi) will be easily maintained in 2015. I recommend we sustain this to further enhance our position when we eventually establish a more permanent relationship with Lindberg ATC.
The SEFSD board elect is experienced, knowledgeable, and committed to the continuation of a very positive member centered club, so with that being said, I would call upon all 300 plus members to seriously consider what you, personally, as a fun seeking, active member might consider contributing to SEFSD in 2015. Come to me or Jim or Brad and offer your assistance in helping with the 2015 events, maintenance of the field, providing food service to one event during the year. Perhaps you might offer to create an event or co-create an event with another member. The division of labor concept, wherein members of a group share responsibility, is a very healthy thing to see in any organization.
Which brings me to the recognition of two people that have had a decidedly positive impact on our club. Isabel and Paul Guidice have our finances and membership in an excellent place. As treasurer?membership chairperson…husband and wife teams go we could not be luckier. Thanks to this team we look very professional!. Paypal your membership to them and it is complete and so easy…..take time to do that soon as we have a day when the club badges will be handed out coming in January.
Steve Belknap continues to excel with our web-site SEFSD. org and of course we enjoy Jim’s companion Facebook page that many members post to frequently.
I look forward to a lesser role as “chairman of the board” and with a little more headroom to do some other things that are important to me. I firmly believe that with a “team effort” 2015 will be a memorable, enjoyable club member experience that promotes all aspects of radio control flight in a very safe positive manner under the rules of the Academy of Aeronautics and the SEFSD by-laws.
Take care everyone and hope to see you soon….. at Mission Bay ……enjoying this wonderful hobby, with friendly people, in every possible way.
