Metrolina Control Line Society (MCLS) held their regular monthly meeting at Watt Moore’s Home/Flying Field in Chester, SC. The weather was not conducive for flying, but Will Davis did put together a big pot of pork and beans and spicy corn bread to combat the damp, cold day.
The following were present: Will Davis, Wesley Smith, Watt Moore, James Duckworth, Kyle Anderson, and Don Jenkins.
The meeting was brought to order at 2:00 PM.
The club remains financially stable and has the funds available to support the 2020 contest season and beyond. The meeting minutes from January were read and a motion was made to approve them.
