First, three reminders, the next meeting is Tuesday (this coming Tuesday) May 1st 7:30 PM at the VFW upstairs, our first Fun-fly of the year is next Sunday May 6th at Spiegel Field. Looks like we should have excellent weather, if you think we can believe the weather forecast, and we have a control line Fly-in on Saturday May 19th.
In the past few weeks we had our work days at the fields. Both fields are in great shape and open for business. I want to thank all that showed up to help with whatever the task. I also would like to make a special mention to the crew that tackled the painting of the shed at Baugher Field. The previous Saturday Bob Allen replaced one of the wall panels that had a hole from the outhouse being blow over. The Wednesday before Steve Hare and I did a scrub down to get the dirt and mold off the siding. Saturday the caulking and painting was done by Pat C, Bryan N., Ron O, and Dave S.. This crew was a painting machine and made short work of the project. Thanks to every ones effort the shed looks brand new.
We have decided on one more project for Baugher Field and this is to lay a paving stone deck under the canopy. Pat has contacted a company near Hanover, PA that has a sale between May 14th and the 25th so persons TBD will go and purchase the blocks sometime during the sale and Jim Christensen has offered his flatbed trailer to do the hauling. More on this later.
Looks like the weather is finally going to turn for the better so get your equipment in order and come on out to the field and fly.
See you at the field,
