Many thanks to the members who volunteer for field maintenance each season. Mike has been mowing the field for several years now as well as maintaining the tractor, Russ, Ron, Steve and myself have been spraying for weeds every Spring, with occasional help from others, plus Larry and Roger have been sharing the grass trimming responsibilities. We all need to appreciate their efforts and avoid taking them for granted. We have a beautiful flying site and it’s not by accident.
Programs to Attract Young Members
Jeff W. attended the Washington County STEM meeting last month and reports that they are definitely interested in setting a date and time for a demonstration at the field that would include introductory flights and a short presentation on aircraft types, power plants (electric, glow and gas) and aerodynamics. I suggested we try to do this either on the day we are at the field for Rivertown Days or the day of our annual picnic. I believe that this process may take some time but it’s worth pursuing. I would also like to hear from someone who is interested in contacting the Dakota County 4H group to see if they would be interested also.
Annual Building Contest
The upcoming meeting will include the postponed Annual Building Contest. Members are invited to bring an airplane to display and other members will vote for their favorites. We will award cash prizes at least for the top three. Bring your plane and show it off.
Dinner After the Meeting
During the months that we meet at the flying field, members who wish to dine do so after the meeting. We will decide at that time where we will be going. Everyone is welcome.
Rich Valley R/C Apparel
We have a few RVRC shirts and old style caps that I will bring to the meeting and give away. The caps with the new logo on them are $11.50, and I will have them along also if anyone wishes to purchase one.
