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.
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.
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.
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 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!
Remember the Electric Event this month:
See the flyer:
PILOTS PAY ONLY $15
Proof of AMA is required.
Get ready for the Float Fly and the Electric Event.
Don't forget UVA's open house!
Sounds like we have another burn permit.
Saturday, May 26th.
Bring your planes because the pile is small and should burn fast.
It looks like the Utah Heli Association won the bid again this year to host the International Radio Control Helicopter Association 2007 Southwest Fun Fly. They held it last year, and the only real problem I was aware of is that the little RC field by the lake in Utah County just doesn't scale well to larger events.
IRCHA Southwest Regional FunFly - 3rd Annual: September 2007 (Exact Date TBD) - We are Hosting this event!!
Hi guys, IRCHA approved our proposal to host the IRCHA Southwest Funfly again this year. It will be bigger and better. We will be holding it at the SLC Modelport sometime in early September. This will be a great event for the club, so pitch in where you can. Gary Travis will be the event CD again, give him a thanks when you see him.
If you use SR201 there is a sign that says it's closed Saturday. Looks like it's closed before the I-80 cross-over so I'd just take I-80 back at I-215.
