Welcome to the Dog days of Summer. August club meeting is just around the corner and what a fun time our last event was, Poker Fly (more soon). I was also happy to see how many members showed up, great to see you all and as always looking forward to see more of you out at the field. Thanks Mark and Carl with prepping the Hot Dogs and all the goodies that came with it. Looking forward for our August meeting!!!
A few notes: The surrounding area around the field is very dry. If an aircraft goes down, I know we slowly walk out to it, thinking all is good, which in most cases has been good. Let’s not take it for granted. Fire Extinguishers are more important to have now with the field being dry. Costco had them on sale, not sure if they still are sale. Please, if you’re able to, bring a fire extinguisher with you.
In the last meeting, we had this one question come up a few times about the gate and being the last person and I just want to make sure (no names mentioned here, right Alan) very member is aware of…. You’re the last one out, Lock the Gate behind you as you leave the field! This will maintain the integrity of our field!
28 members joined in the fun. All were able to draw their first 3 cards. Just like in Vegas, you get a lousy first three cards, some got a pair like Ty with pair of Kings, good for fifth place, way to go Ty! But even with a pair you still need to collect your two remaining cards. Right after receiving your three cards, it was time to fly, come back get your fourth card. Fly come back for your fifth card. Then you had the opportunity to discard a card, fly receive a card and if you still needed too, discard a second, fly get your last card and hopefully you got the had you wanted. So, without further delay here are the winners:
- As mentioned, congrats to Ty for taking fifth place with a pair of Kings – $10.00
- Fourth place went to Scott with two pair threes and sixes – $20.00
- Third place went to Nick with three eight’s – $30.00
- Second place went to Jia with three nines – $40.00
- First place went to George Horper drawing just five cards with a Flush, Hearts! – $50.00
Congratulation to you all!
This Month it’s Altitude Quest. Here is how it’s going to go. Any airplane may play. No Drones allowed. You will be able to drawn, spin to get you altitude anywhere from 25 to 199 feet. A device will be mounted on your plane and will record the altitude you are to achieve. You are going to be judge on your height your aircraft achieves. The closer you are to you mark, wins. Prize will be TBD.
Looking forward to seeing you all at the field!
