IMPORTANT INFO TO BE PASSED ALONG REGARDING THE FUTURE OF OUR HOBBY. PLEASE MAKE AN EFFORT TO ATTEND.

January it was cold and rainy, the winds were 12 kts with gusts to 32! In spite of that, I hope everyone had an opportunity to get out and fly at least once this month.

I was finally able to get out to the field this past weekend and get some good flying in. I managed to make some observations while I was there. First, the bad news. There were a lot of crashes this weekend. The good news is, that none of them were mine. We’ve all been there, and will be again. What still impresses me though, is how everyone tries to help out in some way when that happens. Be it, helping to carry the wreckage back to the pavilion area or trampling through the woods to search for a fallen aircraft. We all share a common passion for this hobby and it’s good to see people coming together to help.

Okay, enough of the Kumbaya.

FYI. I met with some of the Park Rangers at the field and they said that they will be coming around and asking people to present proof of their memberships at the field starting in February. So please make sure, you have your 2020 key and Park Pass on hand.

As a reminder, if you haven’t renewed your 2020 WACAMA membership yet, the locks will be re-keyed at the end of January and your 2019 key will no longer be functional. Go to http://www.wacama.com to renew. DON’T FORGET TO SELECT THE BOX FOR THE FAPA MEMBERSHIP!!!!

Again, because he did such an awesome job, I would like to give a huge shout-out to

JAY KUSTER

for his continued efforts to improve the flying field. This past December, he kindly donated a significant amount of his time and expertise to single-handedly complete the Pilot Stations and the Flight Tables. They look great Jay!

FREE hat for club members who attend the club meeting. Be the envy of friends and family when they see you rocking our new FAPA Club hat. But, like most things in life, you must be present to receive.

Please come and join us for our first club meeting of 2020 and share in the camaraderie.

President Vic

Please be aware that there is a difference between the WACAMA Park Pass and Flying Aces R/C Club Membership. To fly at Waymer field a Park Pass is required and AMA membership is required to apply for the Park Pass. FAPA Club Membership is not required to fly at Waymer. You can join FAPA at the same time you join or renew your WACAMA Park Pass for an additional $20.
