Metrolina Control Line Society (MCLS) held their regular monthly meeting at the home and flying field of Watt Moore, in Chester, SC.  Watt got in a flight via the “flying chair”, and Larry Hilliard, Trevor Sayer, and Will Davis got in many flights on a beautiful November afternoon.  Don Jenkins, Wayne Robinson, and James Duckworth were also present to enjoy Will’s famous “mystery meat” stew and corn bread for lunch.

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

Financial Report:

The club had a successful 40th Anniversary contest, and after it was all paid for, the club remains financially stable and has the funds available to support the 2023 contest season. The meeting minutes from our meeting in September were read and approved by those in attendance.
