ample parking, and electricity.

From the President:
I was at the field today, WOW 48° and no wind - and no plane!
Got to see lots of geese heading north - spring is on it's way!
Right now the field has frost in ground! SO PLEASE NO DRIVING ON THE GRASS! If you come out to fly, drop your stuff off, back out and park up front - we don't need to be cleaning up ruts in a month or so!
Also don't forget to pay dues - no dues no flying ! Captain Ed is ready to help you if needed.
Now is the time to take close look at your birds! Check out the joints, servos, motor mounts wings, rudder and electronics.
A wise very man once told me "don't bring your problems to the field - and for damn sure don't put your troubles in the air!!"
Looking forward to the 2018 flying season
