Today, I stumbled upon this article written by our own Dennis Norman and published in the AMA’s Model Aviation magazine in 2016. It is full of interesting history and is good reading for new members and older members, alike.
Muncie and Geneseo – and probably other flying sites – have been hit with very wet conditions this year. FAC’er Tom Hallman sent in this “video of a modeler and equipment”. It’s not far from the truth…
Fly when you can! I’m sure I won’t be the only one at the non-Nats with untested planes!
Due to interminable rain and wetter than usual conditions of the field, CD Pat Murray has postponed the annual McCook Squadron contest at Muncie. Scratch this weekend (8/9 June) and pencil in next weekend (15/16 June – yeah, that’s Father’s Day) .
See you there – bring all your big ships!
Steve Neill in California has started a new FAC Squadron. He is calling the group the Ventura Model Aviators and has been assigned Squadron #50. He has just a handful of members right now and is looking for more. If you are a modeler in the area, just let him know!
Check out their web site – it looks like a good one!
The Contest Input Form is ACTIVE!
After a couple of hiccups (and back-burner naps), the Add Contest Page is active. Thanks to IT Guru, Rick Pendzick, we have a way for you CDs to submit your local events. Two important things will happen when you do this: 1) your contest will be logged on the FAC Contest Calendar (see the Calendar HERE) and 2) FAC members in the “local” area will be notified of an upcoming contest via email. That email will contain all relevant contest information – AND – a Google Maps routing to the contest location!
CDs – PLEASE USE THIS FORM! Find it HERE (also on the above menu under FAC Contests).
I APOLOGIZE FOR THE BAD LINK BEFORE – IT HAS BEEN FIXED
Tom Hallman has assembled another great selection of FAC photos for the 2019 calendar. You can find it in his FAC CafePress site – and all profits go to the FAC! You can see all of the monthly photos below.
