Following the meeting, Roman was approached with an idea about possibly putting on an event in the early spring.  After Roman talked it over with Jeff and Lance, they agreed that it was a great idea.
 
The event is to raise money for the club and if well attended should make allot of money for the club.  An email was sent out by Roman.  The reason for the email is to put it out there for members to consider hosting the event.  The event will be a 2 day event  for the club on April 12 through the 13th.  We will want to sanction the event ASAP.  The landing fee will be 25 dollars for both days and include a BBQ dinner. 
 
The event is called "Giant Scale Fly-in & 3D Bash".
 
However, not to be mislead by the title is the event is open to all size planes and styles of flying, but it's flavored to draw in the giant scale crowd.  War birds, IMAC Scale etc.  So if your plane has wings and can fly it is welcome by my standards.  We are going have a hover contest and a simple air race at the event.  However, these will be participation based.  The air race will be geared toward anybody.  In a nutshell, for the air race it will be a down and back pass. The down wind pass will be a roll and the up wind pass be a loop.  Smoke is optional and adds to the wow factor and it will timed. 
 
We need to see if anybody opposed to the event.   Please let Roman know by the 11th of January. 
If you have any question feel free to contact Roman, Jeff or Lance.
 
More details to come on the event.  Lance is checking on couple things with the core to make the event even more spectacular.
