Mark you calendar for Thursday September 21st. The club meeting will be held at the Redmond Community Center in room 124 from 6-8pm. The room is located on the first floor which is different than our usual room (202) I encourage everyone to bring a show and tell item. It can be a current project your working on, a favorite tool or technique you use. Keep an eye out for an update on this months topic.
If you've been reading the articles in your Model Aviation magazine about the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requirements for Remote ID, you will be happy to hear that our application for a FRIA at Marymoor RC has been approved.
The FAA treats all RC planes, helicopters, sailplanes, and drones etc. as Unmanned Aerial Systems, or UAS.
Sorry, the field will be closed on Wed September 6, from 8 til 11 am while the park does some mowing of areas around the runway as well as off into the bush.

If you weren't there, we're sorry we missed you. The annual FFFaBBQ, Family Fun Fly and BBQ (pronounced FaB Q?) was a hit! Perfect weather, great attendance, delicious food, thrills, spills, and togetherness.
Special thanks to the parents of the Youth for enabling the kids to fly and learn. This year the Youth organized and executed several of the events, and everything ran so smoothly! They are our future, and it's looking bright. We love events that mix up youth and adults. Youth benefit from mentoring, and adults are reminded how much FUN the hobby can be.
Mark your calendar for September 9th! The Marymoor R/C club will be having an end of summer Swap Meet. The club will be selling a number of donated kits and airplanes including a Hangar 9 Spitfire, PT-17 Steerman, Corsair and Radian Glider. The swap meet will be open to the general public from 9am to12pm 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. This is a great opportunity to pick up some used airplanes to add to your collection.

Dear Club Members,
Is there anyone out there with experience with insurance, or broker of insurance? The club could really use some of your help in a consulting role. There would not be much time involved.
This has to do with interpreting the insurance requirements in our current agreement with King County Parks, and making decisions on requirements for contracts with the contractors who will build the new storage shed and charging station for us.

The field will be closed Wednesday August 16 from 7:00 AM until 3:30 PM so that the park crew can mow the area around the field, including some access paths out to the bush for the purpose of walking out to find lost planes.
