President's Message

Good news this month. The Caldwell County Site has met final approval. We will be signing the land use agreement this week. At the next meeting we will be discussing work that will be required to get the field operational. We intend to get everyone together at the new field as soon as the weather allows so we can all try out flying from there for the first time.

As you know it is time to renew club dues. Please pay as soon as you can. We will be needing funds for any improvements at the new filed, and also as much help from members as we can get.

Ron Bachman - President
