Fwd: A note about the upcoming AMA elections.

I'm forwarding this as a regular club member and fellow modeler, not as the
club president. Please don't think I'm trying to endorse any candidate in
an official capacity... Since I received my AMA election ballot in the
mail yesterday, I thought I'd share this with you so you were aware of at
least one other candidate.

How A Rogue 1950s Drone Fiasco Ended With 208 Rockets Fired At Southern California

How A Rogue 1950s Drone Fiasco Ended With 208 Rockets Fired At Southern California

These were actually used against Japanese shipping in the Pacific during WW2. They were packed with explosives and flown by radio control. They think that this may have been where the Japanese got the idea of the Kamikaze attacks against U.S. War Ships.

I've got a couple of fixer-up planes for a great price. -- FREE

Hey Gang,

I'm cleaning up the old workshop and I've got a few planes that need a little TLC that I haven't gotten to and probably never will.

They are:
Avatar - Needs a new nose, but the rest of it is in great shape.
J3 Cub .40 size (70 4-stroke) 83" wing. Needs some nose work. Includes new cowl.
Ace SeaMaster. Needs a wing. I've got plans or you can cut foam wing. I'll bet Ray Jones would help you with that.

Like I said. They're FREE. And they come with servos and stuff.


Here is some additional information about this Saturday's Float Fly. We will be holding this falls Float Fly at Echo Reservoir located just out of Coalville. Just get on I 80 east to the Coalville exit and follow the road to the north end of town. There will be a $10.00 entrance fee to the beach. Gate opens at 8AM, we will be serving lunch but remember this is a pot luck, so please bring a food item such as Chips, Soda, dessert etc.

Should be a beautiful day so we hope to see you there.

Float Fly coming up this weekend.

This year we are going to try something different. With the low water level and algae bloom we are going to try out a new location.

We will be holding the float fly at ECHO reservoir. There is a $10.00 fee for entrance into to the park. Aaron checked it out and said it is very nice and should be a good place to fly. So please keep your calendar open for Sat. Sept 10th. More info at the club meeting on Thursday.
