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.

April 21st Club Meeting Reminder - Build Contest and More!

Join our Virtual online meeting (link below)

Meeting Agenda:

2022 Build Contest -Not A Plane!

Build and fly anything that ISN'T an airplane! Tune into the meeting to find out the details on the contest and get ideas on what to build.

Flight modes explained. Ever wonder what flight modes might be useful for but confused on how to set them up? BK1 will do a tutorial on how to set up Flight Modes with Spektrum Transmitters. The concepts can be applied to other radios but the steps may differ.

Update on the Field improvement project.

Open Call for Instructors and Aspiring Instructors

Training season is upon us! One of the most significant contributions that our club does for our community is to provide free flight training to anyone that is interested. To make this happen we need a team of volunteer instructors to teach young and young at heart students. If you have been an instructor before, please consider volunteering again this year. If you want to instruct but think you need some guidance, we are planning on running a ‘teach the instructor’ session to get you up to speed.

Field Improvement Update (March)

Over $20,000! That is the amount of pledges we got from enthusiastic club members to help us fund our field improvement project! This pledge amount speaks highly of how much you value MAR/C and the services we provide. On top of that, we sold $2,700 worth of donated items at the swap meet which will go directly to this project. Thank you for this show of support!

Last Call for Pledges for Field Renovation

If you don't spend all your money at the swap meet Saturday, please consider making a pledge to donate to the new charging shelter and "garage" to add class and utility to our field.

The deadline for pledges is tomorrow, March 9.

We have a Board of Director's meeting tomorrow evening at 5:00, so having all the information about pledges will be most useful as we develop the full costs and financial plan.
