  • Troy D Schwable: Greetings one and all. The telephone poles have been placed to protect our field, Joyce Park and the Nature Preserve. We will get rods to drive through them on Monday. Until a better option arises these are what we have to help keep vandalism down.
  • Glenn Corrie: hijacking your plane in flight......the talk of the internet....«link»

  • Glenn Corrie: Larry, maybe tomorrow......watching weather.......«link»
  • Larry Roth (webmaster): Turbine and or Jet Friday anyone?
  • [RP-Stinger]: If guest 1701 really wanted to talk, he would use his name instead of hiding behind a false one.
  • Troy D Schwable: Telephone poles are delivered today, one group set in the grass and one group set in the gravel, I will move them this weekend. Please leave them alone.
  • Troy D Schwable: The month of November is usually the time where bank accounts are transfered etc.
  • Troy D Schwable: Hey Guest 1701, if you want to tell me what everyone is saying, I'd more than happy to listen, but since no one every calls me when something happens, I don't really care what they say. The new president takes over at the December meeting, it is the first meeting he/she presides over. The november meeting is the current presidents responsibility.
  • [guest_5431]: Guest 1701 Tradition is that the new President takes over when the election results are announced in November. December meeting is usually a Holiday party.
  • [Randy Pointer]: Maidens were great success yesterday. The new Sbach and Viper EDF Jet flew great. Now to start pushing them and finding the limits. SMILEYS_WINK
  • [guest_1701]: If the club president really knew what the members are saying about him, he would do the right thing and step down.
  • Glenn Corrie: Here is a video of Mike and Larry hard at work ........«link»
  • [Randy Pointer]: Calm winds today, looks like a maiden may happen. Be interesting to see the recovery from the trees.
  • Larry Roth (webmaster): Tomorrow the Hawks will attempt a model sky crane operation to extract a captive from one of our trees...
  • Larry Roth (webmaster): Hello to all. If any meeting minutes are missing from the records, it is because they have not been sent to me.
  • [Troy D Schwable]: Not sure, will have to ask Kathy
  • Buzz: meeting?
  • Buzz: When will the club minutes be posted for the last meet8ng?
  • [Troy D Schwable]: The poles are to be laid on side along the ridge from the city border down to our wire fence. As I get more to finish the road perimeter I'll let you know. Larry this is not a voted issue, this is a security issue to the entire property. I will be handling this through the City, the Parks Conservancy and the Conservation Corps.
  • [Robert E Dochterman]: I bet digging the post holes isn't.
  • [....]: R
  • [Tony Ballistreri]: Are the poles free?

  • [guest_3672]: Just wasn't sure as it can't role down the runway to takeoff or land. It flys like a multirotor until it's in the air then switches over to a plane.
