August Newsletter

More clean-ups - culvert fixed - field worked on with a tractor - and finally:

Warbirds/Expo Time!!!!

Warbirds - Ute Expo - Aug 18th and 19th - Updated Flier

There is an updated flier with more information about this fun-filled event. Grab you a copy:

Field construction party! Aug 4 !!!

We are going to have a tractor on the field on Saturday.

If you want to come and help out great!

If you want to come out and expect to fly – tough – there is probably going to be a tractor on the field most of the day.

We will be picking up the tractor at around 8:00. The fun will begin shortly after that.

October Event?

We don't seem to have an October fun-fly scheduled yet. Just a placeholder at http://uterc.org/node/175. Any ideas on what a good choice would be?

Saturday Field Clean-up!!!

Bit – O – Help

Ute Club members,

As most of you know we have been waiting on a promise that we would have help in replacing the damaged culvert at the entrance to our flying site. Well, I received the following answer to my questioning as to when that was going to happen:

Quote:
"Jeff (the man with the backhoe), went out to the property, inspected the culvert and reports that the culvert is adequate for what we are doing and it will not be replaced."

Well, I personally feel that the culvert, while being safe for cars, would not be safe for the heavy equipment that we want to get to the field to roll the surface and get it in better condition than it is currently.

Field Updates from a Weekend of Flight

Between Saturday and Sunday this weekend, I spent 8 hours out at the club field. Those of you who haven't flown at it lately, you are missing out! We have a clubhouse, toilet, really nice starter stands with aircraft restraining posts, pit-protection fence (man, I wish we'd had one of these out at Grantsville #2!), and as of Saturday, an AWNING for shade. Yep, props go to Steve Wilson for getting this baby set up. Easily 20 degrees cooler in the shade than out under the sun. That awning is going to be a popular spot on event days. I just hope it withstands the fierce wind you find in this location 2-3 times per year.

Asphalt Costs

Wade had a few supporting documents regarding the cost of asphalt for the field which he showed in the meeting on 2007-07-10. I'm posting them here for your information; see attachments.

Field Photos

Wade emailed me some aerial photos of the club field. I'm not certain who took them, although I think it was Dave S. Anyway, here they are! Click "read more" if you don't see click-able thumbnails of the photos below.

July 2007 Newsletter

Here it is. Packed full of what happened in June. What a busy month.

Great Job to everyone who helped make the float fly and the Electric Event so much fun!

Greetings as a new member

Greetings to all,

I recieved a very warm welcome at the Lake Pointe field last weekend. Thank you to Matt and the other great people present! I am looking forward to meeting many more club members at July's meeting. For those interested, my primary interest remains helis, but I have a lot of stick time on slope and thermal gliders. I still get a buzz searching and finding that perfect thermal. I am a long time subscriber to RCGroups and Helifreak (Username = giheli) but spend most of my time perusing the conversations on Runryder.com (Username = Brian Bennett). I have a pretty extensive gallery posted on the http://runryder.com BBS. Please have a looksee!
