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.
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.
The meeting was adjourned at 2:48 PM.
