Just a Reminder

MAR-C Sound Abatement Event

June 16th &19th, 2021

MAR-C members have been made aware of a noise complaint issued by a party living in the vicinity of our flying field.  In order to be good neighbors for both park users and the adjacent community, a sound limit of 90dBA measured at 25 feet was imposed on all airplanes as of September 1, 2010.

TRAINING HELP BADLY NEEDED!

One of the most rewarding things you can do is to help newcomers.  You may be more qualified than you think!  

We still BADLY need volunteers to be pre-flight inspectors, greeters, crew chiefs, and instructors in our Tuesday Evening Training Program.  Many students are showing up and we are short-handed.

Please consider the gift of your time to the program, and help others into the hobby.  Just show up 5-8 pm on Tuesdays.  You need not check in with anyone first.

if you have any questions, Contact Brian Burk at coffeebean1458@gmail.com.

TENTATIVE - MAR/C July 2021 Swap Meet

Due to the occupancy restrictions placed upon Club events by the Park, the date for the Swap Meet is Tentative. Attendance at any event at the field is currently capped at 50 participants. The Board hopes that the number of attendants allowed will increase significantly by July making this event viable. The Board will evaluate the situation in early July and either confirm or cancel this event.
