Month: September 2018

2018 FAC Outdoor Champs and Ted Dock Memorial

The two-day FAC Outdoor Champs and the two-day Ted Dock are happening on the last weekend of September this year: Thurs/Fri/Sat/Sun 27-30 September.

The BIGGEST news regarding this is that we will be running concurrently with the 2018 SAM CHAMPS, 23-28 September.  As you may know, there are several overlapping events between FAC and SAM.

More News:  If you register at the FAC Outdoor Champs, you can fly in the SAM events FOR FREE!

Even More News:  There will be a Concourse display for models on Wednesday evening at the AMA Museum and SAM will be awarding a nice trophy for the best FAC model.

MORE More News:  SAM will be sponsoring trophies for THREE overlapping events:  OT Fuselage, OT Stick, and Jimmie Allen!

Check our EVENTS CALENDAR for the two FAC contest details.

Downloadable FAC Newsletters – Complete

Thanks to Stew Meyers, all* of the back issues are now downloadable.

* – Here’s the hitch:  the Council voted to have all newsletters – minus the most recent 5 years – available.  So what we have today is up to and including Sept/Oct 2013 (#273) online.

“Check them out” in the Library!  And there is no need to return them to the library once you check them out – HAWWWW!

Comet Model News Video

A short 15-minute video on the history of Comet Model Airplane Company from 1929-1941 is NOW AVAILABLE online!

I have added a new link to the Comet Catalog Page.  (A little cross-contamination to my business history) – when I took over my business, I had a small supply of these DVDs and was able to sell them.  I was pleased to find this official copy of the DVD online the other day – it is free to watch for everyone.

HERE is the link, but you can always find it on the Comet Catalog Page in the Library.

Kanone and Memorial List Updated

Both lists updated as of 01 September.   The Kanone List includes the kanones awarded at the 2018 FAC Nats.

My intention is to update these lists the first of every month.
