Metrolina Control Line Society Meeting Minutes from 18 November 2023
Metrolina Control Line Society (MCLS) held their regular monthly meeting at the Waymer Flying Field in Huntersville, NC. We had fantastic November weather with temperatures in the 70’s with decent wind most of the day. Once again, we had a crowd of fellowcontrol line enthusiasts with lots of flying all day on two circles, and Will Davis grilled hot dogs for lunch. The following folks were present: Will Davis, Don Jenkins, James Duckworth, Buddy Barbee, Larry Hilliard, Phil Bailey, Everett and Jo Shoemaker, Fredand Patty Brigeman (and their stunt dog Tater) and Ivan Garcia.
The meeting was brought to order at 1:32 PM.
The club remains financially stable and has the funds available to support control line modeling for another year. The meeting minutes from our meeting in August were read and approved by those in attendance.
The meeting was adjourned at 2:07 PM.
