     I hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather that we have in our region . The recent winter weather should have our workshops busy with winter projects .Below is a picture of my home field  covered in snow that I share with my horses .  

We are blessed to have mild winters and can usually fly year round if we pick our better days to fly.  If you want to meet at the field , get in touch with Don Jenkins , Will Davis or Max Flow to arrange someone to fly with.

Our annual After Christmas party was put off until better weather to allow us to have a outside meeting to help meet Covid guidelines .

Several club members have tested positive for Covid 19 over the past month . Some have family members and close friends have been sick or exposed to this  epidemic . Please keep these families in you thoughts .

The contest season is coming up quick. If your organization is involved in a

control line event in our area, let me know and I will add it to our published schedule .  

Our next club meeting will be Saturday Feb 26 at Huntetsville field  . Make plans to come out and enjoy a day flying at David B Waymer flying field . I will pick up sub sandwiches from Mama’s Deli for all present at 12:00 ,

I hope to see you at the field .
