This will speed up the process as we won't have to wait for the next meeting to handle this.

January 1st fun fly will be weather contingent. Lunch (hot meals) for noon time. Bring your own beverage


FAA registration was brought up. please log on and do your research. We want to be in compliance so as not to jeopardize our club with the Feds. Look for section 336.
