New RCAA model aircraft flying field

During our June 27th meeting, it was decided to move ahead with the Sturgess road site (see Contact page for directions). 

We will be organizing work parties to do the cleanup once the machine work is done.  There will be brush clearing as well as building of safety fencing, tables etc., before we can get MAAC certified.  Once the major machine work is done, our expenses should be minimal.  In order to get as much done as we can at the start, we are asking members to pay their dues for the next few years at this time.  A number of members have agreed to pay up to 10 years dues in advance (the minimum number of years we have an agreement to use the site).  

Here is a preliminary plan for the site

We are hoping to have an initial, small field operational by the fall, depending on how much money we can raise and how the work parties turn out.

We are accepting new members at this time.  Annual dues are $100, with a $50 initiation fee.  If you wish to join, please contact Stewart Drummond (see Contact page). Stewart will be sending out e-mails when we need work parties.
