Unfortunately, I missed the April meeting. I’m not sure what topics were discussed or if any decisions were made. I was there long enough to learn that Mark Herschlip has been transferred and is looking forward to working closer to his home in Fargo. Mark was a valuable asset to our Club and will be missed. Good Luck in your future endeavors Mark and we look forward to an occasional visit. You’ll always be welcome.
Upcoming Club activities include the Annual Building Contest, the Summer Solstice Picnic and the Annual Rivertown Days Flying Demonstration. I believe we had the Building Contest last year on the evening of the June meeting, which will be June 14th this year. The Summer Solstice Picnic will be Saturday, June 23rd and Rivertown Days will be Saturday, July 21st. I will finalize the dates at the meeting Thursday evening.
I would also like to set the date for our annual picnic, possible moving it upmto early August. The only reason would be to change the menu to offer steak and fresh corn on the cob. Think it over and voice your opinion at the meeting.
Membership Cards and RVRC Window Stickers
Beginning this year, I will no longer mail out Membership Cards and window stickers. The membership cards serve no useful purpose and many members have multiple window stickers in their possession. If you need a sticker I will be happy to provide one to you. Non-members will no longer receive e-mail notifications of mowing or upcoming meetings. I also hope to display a current membership list on our bulletin board.
Field maintenance and Improvements
We will inspect the flying site for needed repairs at the meeting this week and set a date to make any repairs, hopefully prior to Rivertown Days.
Anyone who may be interested in providing instruction to members who need it should contact one of the Board members.
