Metrolina Control Line Society Meeting Minutes from 26 August 2023

Metrolina Control Line Society (MCLS) held their regular monthly meetings cc and I  at the Waymer Flying Field in Huntersville, NC.  We had a great turn out for our Annual ½ A Day with the following folks present:  Will Davis, Don Jenkins, James Duckworth, Jamie Duckworth, Larry Draughn, Phil Bailey, Trevor Sayer, Everett and Jo Shoemaker, Scott Seiler, John Fountain and David, Wesley, and Connor Smith.  

It was incredibly hot and humid, but the weather did not deter the ½ A modeling bunch!  There were many flights put in, some successful and some not.  The Cox plastic ready-to-fly planes were everywhere, and a PT-19 and Cosmic Wind made several flights.  Wesley and Conor Smith got in some handle time with a flying disk and Larry Draughn got in a short stunt flight with his TEOSAWKI until the controls locked up, ouch!  As usual, Everett and Jo Shoemaker arrived with 2 boxes full of hand-crafted miniature scale models and got in several flights.

Will Davis grilled hotdogs for lunch, and when not eating or flying, everyone was taking cover from the sun under Will’s canopy.  Once again, we had a great day of fellowship and flying.

Everett graciously hand cut four ½ A kits for awards, and Will had a big box of .049 engines and parts for the taking for the 4 winners.

The meeting was brought to order at 2:00 PM.
