May is fast approaching and we are getting ready to gear up for our Summer Flight Training! The club is looking for volunteers so if you're a skilled pilot and are available Tuesday evenings, consider signing up to teach others the love of R/C flying! Ideally, the club needs 7-10 instructors. This will allow instructors to spread out the time commitment to everyone involved. We typically have 5 instructors each Tuesday but it would be nice to have an additional instructor to give breaks throughout the evening.
The "Festival of Color" event will happen at Marymoor tomorrow, 12:00-5:00. Very heavy attendance and traffic is expected, so our parking lot might be impacted at that time.
Our swap meet begins officially at 9:00 am. As with all swap meets, if you want to make or find the best deals it pays to be early. There is nothing preventing folks from showing up earlier, and I'll bet many will.
If you have not already done so, please renew your membership so that you are all set to start flying when the mood strikes. We usually get some good weather in April as soon as the March storms are done, so this is a good time to do it. Also, you'll get a free MAR/C sticker with our logo.
The Marymoor R/C club will be having a Swap Meet and Fun Fly on Saturday March 18th. The swap meet is open to the general public from 9-2 and all are welcome to bring airplanes/helis and R/C related items to sell. Swap meet will be located in the grassy area between the parking lot and the flying field. The field will be open to anyone for flying with a current AMA membership. Lets hope for great weather!
