A few days ago the Park Superintendent advised me that, as a result of vandalism and other users causing damage to sections of the upper picnic area and environs, access to the parking lot next to the field will now require all MAAW members to UNLOCK THE CHAIN ACROSS THE BOTTOM OF THE ACCESS ROAD, AND LOCK SAME AFTER BOTH ENTRY AND EXIT. Ironically this brings us back to the days when the gate at the entry point was locked, and members were given the combo for entry and egress. This arrangement is scheduled to remain in place until the beginning of the Park season (April?) or until Park personnel advise otherwise. For the moment going forward if you need to get up to the field call the President’s Hot Line at 914 588-7293 and he will give you the combo. If you attend a meeting you will also be given the combo at that time. Your cooperation is appreciated!
It’s that time of the year again. In a little over a month the second version of the former W.R.A.M. show- now sponsored by the A.M.A.- will be upon us. We’re once again making plans to have a booth at the show to not only raise money, but awareness of and participation in RC Flying in our neck of the woods. WE NEED VOLUNTEERS TO MAN THE BOOTH. Over the last years we’ve relied on a few stalwart members who’ve contributed time all three days of the show to help the cause. We cannot expect only these individuals to shoulder the load! While our presence at the show is no longer a nexus for attracting new members in Westchester, it remains a nominal source of income to help with the bills. Let an Officer or Director know THE LATEST by the next meeting on Tuesday 2/20 if you can help out, for even just one day. Make the effort and lend a hand!
