RVRC Board President -Dan Knack - (612) 300-2840 Cell -(651) 248-6301 Vice President – Marc Radle - 612-770-0298 Secretary/Treasurer – Steve Hefty – 651-690-3017
The upcoming meeting will be our last one prior to Rivertown Days. Anyone having questions should plan on attending. Several of the drone racing pilots will be attending so you can get to know them and ask questions of them if needed. According to Paul Findt (Mighty Drones) he is getting an enormous response to the Rivertown Days drone race. I’m also very excited to take some of the pressure off of the Club members to perform.
The FPV drone pilots will be practicing on Saturday, July 14th after 5:00 PM. Fixed wing pilots may have to restrict their flights while the FPV guys are practicing. If you wish to fly during this time, it would be prudent to utilize a spotter.

Summer Solstice Picnic Recap
We finally were able to have the Summer Solstice Picnic Sunday evening, July 1st. We had the best turnout I’ve ever seen, 16 members were on hand. They enjoyed Hotdogs with coney sauce and chips, along with home made chili (Clyde), peanutbutter cookies (Darryl) and brownies (Roger plus one other I can’t remember. Sorry!).
There was ample flying, great discussions and no accidents. Everyone had a wonderful time. Finally.

Fall Funfly and Picnic
It’s time to set a date for our annual picnic and Funfly. Check out your calendar and propose a date at the meeting Thursday night. This is a potluck picnic. Members bring dishes to share and the Club provides the main course.
Club Instructor (Ongoing Request)
Anyone who may be interested in providing instruction to members who need it should contact one of the Board members. As far as I know, there have been no volunteers.
