Next Club Meeting – Saturday February 2, 2019

The next club meeting is Saturday February 2, 2019 at 10.00am and will be held at the clubhouse.

Please sign-in when you arrive. New members are encouraged to attend and introduce yourselves to the rest of the gang. If you have recently received your AMA membership number and FAA sUAS registration please convey them to Max Burton – Club Treasurer.

A highlight of the monthly meeting is the “Plane of the Month” which has two categories: Kit / Scratch and ARF / BARF. All entries must have completed at least one successful flight (which includes a successful landing…) Entrants must be able to withstand the withering questions asked by attending membership of your entry before votes are cast.

Lost and Found RC Models

BCF member John Haskell has explored the wild country north of the runway and located a number of models. He has written a short descriptive document, taken pictures of the models and posted their location on a map. This information is available to BCF members registered to access the Member Documents section of the website. If you have lost a model or know of a someone who has, check out this information. It is believed John will periodically update this information. If you find a lost model not currently identified, please contact the owner if so identified and contact John as well by providing a photo and coordinates. Thank you John.
