The Marymoor Radio Control Club (MAR/C) promotes the hobby/sport of radio controlled model airplane flying. MAR/C manages and maintains the model airfield in Marymoor Park in accordance with a Use Agreement with King County Parks Division. Flight training and special events are held at the model airfield during the summer. Monthly Club meetings are held to socialize and share information about the hobby. Membership in MAR/C is approximately 300 members.
The club also has a facebook group which members can join to discuss flying and post pictures to.
As we are all fully aware, AMA recently revised their membership policy so that membership renewal date is now 12 months from the initial date of membership, rather than the prior policy of annual, January 1 to December 31, membership.
This change by AMA is now out of sync with MARC membership policy, which is annual, January 1 to December 31.
Recent speaker at our general meeting, Prof. Chris Lum of the UW's Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, had mentioned that the department would be holding a design review presentation this winter, for their upcoming senior project, and that our input would be welcomed. This looks to be an especially interesting design project--a plane that carries the disassembled components of another plane, the latter of which has to carry a mission payload. successfully.
