The Clubhouse

The virtual hangout for Ute R/C members when we're not flying.

Elect Lawrence Tougas for AMA Executive Vice President

Remember this guy? Visited Salt Lake seven years ago while campaigning. Haven't seen or heard from him since.

He's campaigning Ad began with: "AMA has lost its way........"

I think he's lost his way.



I was at our field today and it is not flyable. Lots of standing water
and mud on field and parking area. Flying mabe on Thursday but more rain
is coming. I plan to fly at the new model port tomorrow. see you there.

Also a big thank you to Evan Higginsen, he spent his time and put
together the rest of the windsock and put it up at the model port with
help from other fliers that were there.

Volt Checker...

This Lipo battery checker was found on a stanchion at the Airpark field last Friday AM. Undoubtedly it was left there Thursday the day before. It now resides on the bench inside of the shed awaiting its owner.

Special Night Fly, Saturday, Aug. 19th

Night Fliers,

A nearly New Moon will occur this coming Saturday, Aug. 19, 2 days
before the total eclipse of the Sun. Weather permitting, it will be an
ideal time to photograph your lighted planes against a pitch black sky.

At our last Night Fly, July 22nd, we quit too soon, the sky was not
yet pitch black. The little bit of remaining dusk light forced short
exposures which were not long enough for the plane to execute much of
a pattern.
