Our Next Meeting:
Will be on Wednesday evening, July 20, 2005 at 7 P.M. the clubs flying field. Be reminded to
take a deck chair with you if you enjoy relaxing in comfort. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate and we can enjoy
a pleasant evening at the field with our flying friends and there will be no need to seek an alternate meeting site.
The June meeting of the Recker R/C Club was held at the club field on Wednesday, June 15, 2005.
The meeting was called to order at 7:00 P.M. by President Ernie Zam.
Membership secretary, Gary Billmaier. 11 members present.
Total paid up membership as of this
date numbers 54.
Treasurer Gary Billmaier. Gary reported that all bills have been paid and the club is solvent.
Gary also reported that the field was mowed 8 times in the month of May, with a cost of $680.00. Gary also told the
members present that Lucky Farmers submitted a bill for $340.00 which paid for grass seed and fertilizer, which has been applied
to the field.
Help for downed aircraft:
Bob Harrison donated a set of walkie-talkies to the club. The club has also bought a second
President Zam reported that he had been contacted by the Fostoria R/C Club. The club is having
a function on June 30, and wanted to know if our club would be interested in a static or flying demonstration at same.
The general concessus was that since the mix-up at the Bowling Green flyin a few years back the membership thought we should
pass on this invitation.
Pat from the Hobby Stop presented the club with a frequency chart which now is in the frequency pin
cabinet. Thanks Pat.
No new news on the proposed float fly as Bill Dewey was not present this evening.
The Piper Cub Flyin is still a go. Members with yellow, red, blue or what have you Cubs are
welcome. Actually any type or size plane is welcome to fly at this event. The date for the flyin is Saturday,
July 23, 2005.
Frequency Notification Pins:
The members are reminded that when you fly be sure to put the frequency pin on the frequency peg.
The frequency pin is not to leave the cabinet. (The pin is not to be attached to your radio antenna.)
It was suggested that perhaps the club should change the name of the club. When originally started
on April 2, 1987, the club field was on Recker Road. The patches, etc., then had the words Recker R/C Club put on them.
Next Year, 2006 the club will be at the present field 10 years. President Zam would like some input as to what the members
would like to do. The club can change its name or leave it the same.
Club logo on shirts etc.
John Schell said that there is a business in Gibsonburg that does logo, etc., on shirts. John
said he will get prices on same. Bill Rattigan said that he will also check out prices at a source he knows.
The members are asked not to sit on the tables. Some unfortunate results have occurred in the
past when this was done.
It was told to the members that no cell phones should be carried to the flight line. It was
reported in a publication that the first ring that is emitted by a cell phone emits a higher frequency that could affect the
integrity of your radio and create control problems.
Meeting adjourned at 7:27.
