Rescheduled Open Fly-in

Rescheduled Open Fly-in

At our last meeting we decided to make another run at a fly-in for the non-MMAA flyers in the general area. As you may recall, we were rained out in June. The date we selected this time is August 8th. That's our monthly meeting date. More info to come. Questions anyone?

If I might make a suggestion, If anyone has some old model aviation magazines they don't want any more maybe we could bring them to the fly in on saturday for free samples for anyone who wants them. Also, I have the leaflets for the club that were left over from the "men in the mix" day so I will bring them also.

Shoot, I just gave my olde model aviation mags to Wayne last week. I may have some Air and Space Smithsonian for any rabid aviation types. I'll bring em. I'll also bring some membership applications, name tags, and any brochures I have on hand. I'll try to scare up some change for people who donate some money, I'll bring some donation forms, and one item I have for a prize, and a roll of tickets. The prize is a flat epp foam indoor electric model. I will see if I have anything else I feel like parting with.

Given the weather, I think I'll just buy plates, cups, and some water and pop this evening. If all is ood in the morning I'll run to delta for the food. I really don't want to buy a bunch of food and have things not come together.

The public turnout was disappointing, but there was a definite upside to the day. We had a decent turnout of our own members, got in some good flying, broke bread together, and enjoyed each other's company. On top of that, we pitched in together to perform some needed maintenance on the site the previous weekend. All in all, a good teamwork exercise by our members. There was only one serious airplane to ground impact on Saturday. Mike Rice lost his big Uproar. The cause is still under investigation by the Rice Local Model Airplane Safety Board.

OK, I checked everything and still can,t find a cause. I was just thinking over the event and I think I may have a cause. For those who didnt see the "event", I was was doing an outside loop starting at the top of the loop. The wind was gusting a little and I was heading into the wind. on the bottom half of the loop the plane started to straighten out the loop at about 45 degrees and hit the ground totally distroying the plane. I am thinking that maybe a gust of wind hit it at this point causing the elevator to become less effective because of my attitude to the wind. so an error on my part may have caused the crash! Does that make sense?
