2019 Spring clean up/ field day a success!

Our 2019 Spring field was a success this year. Although we didn’t meet our original ambitious goal of painting the shed, tables, runway lines and cleaning up. We still managed to get most of the tables painted, paint the runway lines and do a general clean up of our flying area. Most likely the rest of our painting will occur during our fall clean up/ maintenance day. Thank you again to all that participated this year.

The rule will take effect on Monday, February 25, which means the markings must be in place for any outdoor flight beginning on that date.
