New Mowing Schedule

  • The field is closed to flying when mowing is in progress.  Mowing must take precedence when our volunteer groundskeepers come to the field to mow. 

  • When permitted by weather and availability of our volunteers, mowing is scheduled at these times:

               Monday or Tuesday Mowing             11:30 am - 1:00 pm.

               Friday Mowing                                   3:00-5:00 pm

               Tuesday weed and mole patrol         morning, short interruption        

Open House Saturday!!

From 9:00 - 4:00, and the forecast is looking good!  

 

Please bring your best stuff to show off for the public.  We will be letting them a little ways into the pit area for a closer look at things.  We'll keep them behind the tables, so your flying won't be affected.

 

SupaTim Hanstine of Northwest Hobbies will be there to fly some of his big, very aerobatic stuff.  His 3D routines are an inspiration, even if you're not a 3D pilot.

 

Lessons Learned, Instructors, and Fun

  • Lessons from a recent crash outside our boundary
  • Instructors needed for Training Tuesdays
  • Our rules, Simplified
  • Mount Rainier club summer events

New (or old?) Lessons Learned:

Outfits like the military and airlines strive for a modern safety culture. One that is NOT punitive, so that lessons can be shared, for obvious benefit. I'm sharing this with the blessing of the pilot who had a recent accident.

Spring Newsletter

Welcome to the Spring MAR/C newsletter!

Despite the cooler, stormier weather we have had this month, I am amazed at how busy the field is on the weekends! I think we are all looking forward to some warmer weather. With the spring, comes the weed and grass growing season. Rob, who does the field maintenance, is looking for volunteers to help with weed whacking, mole management, and repairs of tables and test stands. Send an email to the club if your interested and I will get you in contact with Rob.
