Our Next Meeting
Will be on Wednesday August 17, 2005, at 7:00P.M. at our club's flying field, weather permitting.   No alternate site has been designated at this time.  Arrangements will be made at the site should the weather force us to do so.   
You may wish to bring a deck chair to sit so you don't have to stand or sit on the damp ground.

At This Meeting:    
We will be accepting nominations from the floor for Club President, Vice President, Membership Secretary/Treasuer, Field Boss/Safety Officer, Recording Secretary.  The term for each of these positions is one year and you need only be a paid up member to qualify for the office.  If you think you know of someone who would do justice to the position all you need do is make the nomination when the president opens the floor and calls for the nominations.

                                                       July 20, 2005
The July meeting of the Recker R/C Club was held at the club field on Wednesday, July 20, 2005.  The meeting was called to order at 7:00 P.M. by President Ernie Zam.

Roll Call:
Membership Secretary, Gary Billmaier, 14 members present.  The total paid up membership at this date is still 54 members.  It was noted that in previous years a few new members were added during the months of August, September and even as late as October.  When this happens, those memberships carry over into the next flying season.

Treasurers Report:
Treasurer Gary Billmaier reported that as of this date there are no outstanding bills.  Grass cutting from June 20th to this date number 4, for a total expense of $340.00.  Normally in previous years the grass needed cutting more often, but due to the lack of rain during this period the grass did not grow as fast.

Club Logo on Hats and Shirts:
John Schell reported that he found a supplier who will silk screen shirts with the club logo.  The charge which includes the white "T" shirts silk screened is between $8.00 and $10.00.  Those interested notify John at the August meeting.

Club Patches:
No one can remember who was the last member to have the club patches inventory.  If you know who that was notify Ernie Zam at 419-698-2442.

Cub Fly In:
The event will be held Saturday, July 23, 2005. 

Float Fly:
There was a float fly held on Saturday July 16, 2005.  There will be a second float fly on August 20, 2005.  Bill Dewey reported that this event will be canceled and held in September if he cannot get someone to CD the event as he will not be able to be present at the August event due to a conflicting situation.  Call Bill if you can take over the August Event.  419-693-5265.

It was reported that there is a new twist on kite flying.  The kites are equipped with some type of camera which is controlled by a servo or servos.  Being that there is not a category listed for this type of kite flying, it is assumed that they do not belong to AMA.  you as a pilot of a powered aircraft which uses a radio signal for controlling same can be hindered in the safe operation of your plane.  Bill Dewey stated that last year unknown to him this was happening at a float fly.  When he asked one of the kite fliers what frequency he was using he was not sure, which gives you as the owner of an expensive airplane something else to be concerned about.
Meeting adjourned at 7:37 P.M. Motion Bob Harrison, 2nd. John Schell
