We had a guest at the May meeting who demonstrated drone racing. As a result, I met with the Board of Mighty Drones and we are planning to stage a drone race event on the day of Rivertown Days. A coarse will be set-up on the North end of the field and we will alternate flying drones and fixed wing aircraft. By doing so we hope to keep something in the air at all times, and our spectators entertained.
On a sad note, I learned at the Spring Hobby Warehouse Swap Meet that Tom will be closing the doors at the end of June after 24 years in business. I’d like you all to join me in wishing Tom and Cheryl success in their future endeavors.

Summer Solstice Picnic Date Change
As a result of an unexpected work schedule change, I have been forced to move the Summer Solstice picnic ahead one week to Saturday, June 16th. If the weather is bad we can try again on Sunday the 17th. I plan to provide coney dogs, buns and a bag of chips. I’ll be at the field by 5:00 PM and plan to stay late. We can fly until almost 9:00 PM! Hope many of you are planning to come.
Field maintenance and Improvements
It looks like we will need to purchase some vinyl siding, 4 fence posts and some pit fence material. Since everything looks pretty good and we haven’t had many nice days to fly, I’ve been convinced to postpone the repairs until a later date.
Thanks to the crew that sprayed the field for dandelions. Steve H., Paul B., Ron H., Russ P., Wayne W., and Bob K. assisted me in the project.
