Our President Angelo Tata;
I have been running, guiding, and now maintaining the Club for the last 20 years I am an avid builder and flyer of all types of Radio Control Aircraft. I am an Intro Pilot with the Academy of Model Aeronautics and I enjoy the camaraderie of our Club members. I work hard in my retirement keeping the peace and caring for our exceptional flying field. We welcome you to visit and join our fine organization.
Prez here. I hope you all have had a safe and healthy summer. Our field is the best in the region thanks to the volunteers that come out every week to do the work that makes it possible.
This season has been quite active with good attendance and little altercation. We were able to run a few Fun-Fly events that were scheduled at the start of the year. Erika our events coordinator has done a great job even though she has had some serious health challenges. The Club members, especially Kenny jumped in to make them happen. He scheduled his knee replacement so he would have the summer off. What a guy. Gary our Treasurer has kept the books straight and the money flowing and accounted for. He deserves recognition for helping behind the scenes.
Erika also set up a meeting with the Veterans nursing home residents. Pictures from that visit are posted on the website. That resulted in the Home sending a couple Vet's up to spend some time at our Summers end Fun-Fly. Great P.R. for the club!
Marty our V.P. had a night fly at Somerton Spartan's ball field. It's an exhilarating experience and not for the faint of heart.
It doesn't take much to prepare a plane for this event. Marty or Herb will be glad to get give you advice on how to do it. This past Thursday Sept. 29th, the maintenance crew aerated and seeded. This was completed at the optimal time will reap benefits next season. The rest of the club barely knows what occurs on a weekly basis to make our field the best in the area. You all need to pat these guys on the back for their unselfish efforts. We have one more major project before the end of the season. We will be inclosing the canopy area with clear vinyl to have warm shelter during winter. Jerry still does his work and councils me on a routine basis, 92 years young!
Thanks for participating in our great club and making it great!
Angelo Tata President along with the rest of the E-Board. Ken, Gary and Marty.
