MCLS Club Meeting 

Metrolina Control Line Society Meeting Minutes from October 2020

Metrolina Control Line Society (MCLS) held their regular monthly meeting at the Perry International Airport and via ZOOM. Wayne Robison and Jim Storia gave tours of Jim’s hangar and shop which is filled with an incredible collection of full-scale planes and gliders, RC planes and gliders, outboard motors, a beautifully restored boat, and 1966 GTO. Will Davis, Don Jenkins, Max Flowe, Mike Linder and Bob Zambelli got in a number of flights at the beautiful facility during perfect weather.  Then we had a gourmet lunch at the cookout building with grilled hotdogs, curtesy of Wayne Robinson, and a terrific pot roast and corn bread crafted by Will Davis.  

The following were present at the meeting: Will Davis, Don Jenkins, Max Flowe, Wayne Robinson, Jim Storia and via ZOOM was Watt Moore and James Duckworth.

The meeting was brought to order at 2:02 PM.  

Financial Report:

The club remains financially stable and has the funds available to support the 2021 contest season and beyond.  The meeting minutes from September were read and approved by those present.

President’s Report:

1. The Brodak Hobby Shop is doing well, and sales are nearly double this year compared to 2019.
 
2. There are no changes to management personnel on the WACAMA board.
 
3. To keep our control line hobby alive, join PAMPA and get a Waymer Flying Field Pass!
 
4. Club member wellness continues to be of concern, so keep Howard Shenton, James Duckworth, Watt Moore, Sonny and Pat Williams and Buz Brodak in your thoughts and prayers.

Old Business:

1. Field maintenance is still required, including fire ant control, weeds on paved circles, tree trimming and grass circle repairs

New Business:

1. The MCLS contest in October of 2021 will be the 40thanniversary.  We have already acquired 5 new combat planes for awards for combat competition, but we need to come up with some ideas for special awards for the remaining competition categories.  We have also decided to create special addition hats to be sold at the contest, and Mama’s Deli will be used to cater lunch on Saturday.
 
2. The May 2021 contest will not occur, but in its place MCLS will sponsor a one-day Fun Fly/Swap Meet at Watt Moore’s Flying Field in Chester, SC on 21 March.  This will also be Watt’s Birthday celebration, so mark your calendars and plan to attend!
 
3. The next MCLS meeting will be 28 November thru zoom. 

The meeting was adjourned at 2:48 PM.

Respectfully,

Don Jenkins

Secretary and Treasurer

                  “The Mo You Know “

If you don’t keep up with space stuff the following is some info of interest.
The US, corporate and military, has over 1000 satellites in space, The military alone has over 200 military defense satellites. US is in a panic race with Russia and China in the space race. Of interest, China recently destroyed one of it’ s outdated satellites via laser fired from one of it’s orbiting satellites. Russia recently released three smaller satellites from one orbiting satellite and then controlled and maneuvered the three little ones close to one of our military satellites.  US Space Force registered a complaint to Russia and the three littler ones were repositioned  away from our defense satellite. Practically everything we do today is either controlled or monitored from orbiting satellites.
As man and humanity has advanced over thousands of years conflict has always followed  It’s only a matter of time in the space race. Many people including officials in government laughed and snickered when Trump announced the Space Force, but in reality the Space Force is vital ally important to our way of life and our defense.
