Recker R/C Club Newsletter
Our Next Meeting:
Will be on Wednesday, May 18, 2005 at 7:00 P.M. at our flying
field, weather permitting. It may be wise to bring suitable clothing and a deck chair to sit
Vice President Ted Csizek conducted the meeting in place of President Ernie Zam who was vacationing
in Florida. Because of the very cool April evening the attendance was very low. A few ideas immerged but due to
the lack of attendance they were tabled until our May meeting when hopefully the weather will be much more cooperative.
Neither our Recording Secretary, Jim Schneider or myself was in attendance to take the minutes, so, I am reprinting the minutes
from the March meeting so as to get back on track. If those who had issues to address at the April meeting will bring
them to the attention of the body at the May meeting we will be happy to address them at that time.

16, 2005. The meeting was called to order at 6:45 P.M. by President Ernie Zam.

totaled 20 members enjoying their supper or beverages.

Billmaier was accepting the yearly dues and checking AMA cards. Gary did report at the end of the meeting that as this
date their were 39 paid memberships. Gary said that he had been contacted by different members who informed him that
they were sending in their dues by mail. It was reported by President Zam, that their were previous members out of town
and that they would be rejoining the ranks.
President Zam brought up the use of walkie-talkies
at the field to help locate downed aircraft. It was recommended that the club purchase a set. Motion to purchase:JerryMcNutt,

Field Report: Ed Grabenstetter was not present,
but it was reported that by others that the field looked in great shape. President Zam reported that some of the barricades
needed to be fixed as the plastic webbing was torn and needed to be replaced. Bob Jarosz said that he would fix them.
President Zam said he would help. President Zam showed pictures of the new frequency board. The board is self
contained, being one part of the board contains the frequency pins and when the pin or pins are selected, they are clipped
on a second attached board that has the corresponding frequency numbers.
President Zam asked Bill Dewey if he was going to organize a float fly this year. Bill said he would check into
it, but reminded the club members that there is now in effect a five dollar parking fee per car to park at Ohio Parks.
Club Fly In:
President Zam asked the members present if they would be interested in having a Cub fly-in at the field this year.
The members expressed interest and more will be discussed at a future meeting.
It was discussed as to whether the April meeting would be held at Ralphie's. The general consensus was, if the
weather is suitable and the field is dry and the parking area can be driven on, the meeting could be held there.
