June 6th Open Fun Fly

June 6th Open Fun Fly

Folks, Keep June 6th open for some fun. We've invited all the local flyers to join us for a day. I've attached a copy of the announcement we're going to post at Ultra Hobbies and elsewhere if we find an appropriate location. We will welcome all local RC pilots and hope to have some trainers there to give folks an introductory flight if they want one. Things are arranged with AMA to sign non-AMA members up for a very short-term membership so that they are covered for liability for a short time and can use our site for the day. Food, at least in part, donated by Ultra Hobbies. Thank you Wayne! Respectfully, Jim Ferguson MMAA Treasurer[br]File: june_fly_in_flyer.pdf

Trainers are a good idea.

All, I have sent out emails to all GJ and Gunnison AMA members for this event. I have also spoken to 5 folks who fly here who are interested in coming. Wayne from Ultra Hobbies will be giving us money for refreshments and will be there. A first for him!! It should be a good day. Hope to see you there.

Will have the porta johns serviced prior to the 6th. Am going to need someone to meet the Sani Serve folks out there to open the gate for them. We have a work day scheduled for the next meeting day, May 9th.

If I'm still in town, I'll bring out the Telemaster for some aero-towing and the Jester motor-glider.

I forgot, does anyone have a buddy box for a Futaba 6EX? I'll need it to fly someone with the Jester motor-glider. Thanks.

Randy, What type of plug does the 6EX have. If it is round I may be able to help

Sure Don, that would be great to let someone buddy-box on the motor glider. Thanks.

For anyone who is interested, I am going out to the field tomorrow to work since I was out of town last saturday and it looks like the weather will be OK for a while tomorrow. I am planning on working on the washout in the pits and the drain to the culvert so if anyone can come out and help I would appreciate it. Please bring a shovel and maybe a pick. It may be needed. I want to see if I can get this done in time for the fly in june. Don't need anyone tripping in the washout! Mike

The weeds are going bonkers! It's so bad that the place looks abandoned. Come the weekend, we'll most likely need to actually mow some of the runways. I hate doing that. They are pretty big to do with a 21 inch mower. Spraying will be in order too. I guess because of the amount of rain the past several spray jobs have not done the trick. Need to add the surfactant to the spray this time. We should roll the runway while we have moisture underneath, but there is so much water in the halogeton that the soil will probably stick to the roller like it did when Cliff tried to roll the control line circle with a bunch of halogeton on it. The porta johns have been serviced. Thanks for the help on that one Don. Mike has done a really nice job with the cement block structure at the inlet to our culvert in the pit area. When we get a chance we should probably cover it with some steel grating to keep someone from falling in.
