This year all of our lives have been affected in some way by the COVID-19 pandemic. Happily, our ability to pursue our hobby was not dramatically affected. One of our annual events was cancelled, but members have been able to fly and practice social distancing.
Our upcoming picnic will be a challenge, but hopefully our precautions will ease any fears members may have pertaining to large group gatherings. First of all, recent attendance has been les than 40 people per picnic. In addition, there will be at least three additional dining canopies set up around our shelter with a picnic table in each to allow families to distance themselves from others. There will also be hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes available. Any other suggestions will be thoughtfully considered.
This will be the final outdoor meeting this season. The October and November meetings will be held at the South St. Paul Fleming Field Terminal Building. Typical attendance at the indoor meetings is less than 15. We will need to discuss any changes that might be necessary to comply with everyone’s safety concerns.
Fall Picnic and Funfly
The Fall Picnic and Funfly will be on Saturday, September 12th. This is an annual event for members, their families and friends. The club will be providing hamburgers and brats, while members are asked to bring a dish to share with the group. If you wish to drink something other than lemonade you should plan on bringing a beverage. Probably would be a good idea to bring some chairs also.
We will have open flying before and after lunch, and will plan on serving lunch at 12:30 PM.
Many thanks to Ron and Chuck for replacing the rotted corner post for our rope barrier. I am not aware of any other repairs that need to be accomplished at this time.
