If anyone happens to go out to do a bit of field maintenance, you might not want to roll the halogeton on the runways. It was wet enough yesterday for mud to start forming on the wheels of my mower. The roller may squeeze enough water out of the weeds to have the roller start to pick up gobs of mud from the runway. This happened to Cliff a few weeks ago. The place is very much in need of additional spraying work.

Nobody pass out or anything, but I do believe I have completed the repairs to my airplane and will have something to fly on Saturday!!Ÿ~€Ÿ~€Ÿ~€

I have a foam indoor kit that I'll bring out for a raffle, and Wayne is going to bring an ARF to raffle. Anyone have anything else that may be good for a raffle or an item to give away that is in good shape? I'm bringing a power panel for a flight box, and probably some miscellaneous control horns, a Turnigy electric motor, etc. I'll have to look through my stuff to see if there is anything else. O' there are some balsa chuck gliders in the small cabinet that are left over from the last Partners affair. If you have some older issues of Model Aviation that you can bring out to give away that might be a good idea. Folks may learn something about AMA too. Wayne donated $100 toward food, and John C. is planning on doing so too. Most likely I'll do the grocery shopping on Friday evening. If anyone is planning to bring water, pop, or groceries, please let me know so I can adjust what I purchase.

As far as I know the raffle is a freebie. My airplane certainly will be.

Not much we can do about it now. We never scheduled a rain day. As I understand it the site has been dragged to remove the weeds, and will require watering and rolling to make it flyable. I believe that some folks were planning on doing that on Friday. If that does not get accomplished, hopefully we'll get just enough rain, if it rains there, to wet the soil enough to compact it very well, and not cause the runway to erode.

After checking the weather and seeing the rain this afternoon, I think I will go out to the field at 8:00 and check the condition of the field and road. I should have info by 8:15 in case anyone wants to call before comming out. If the road is bad enough I will sit at the bridge to ward off anyone before they get head up the road. I understand we have more rain comming tonite so this precheck of conditions may help. Hope the weather forcasts are wrong!
