Solar Charging System Down

 HCAM solar charging station for battery charging is non-functional for the indeterminate future. The batteries and specific solar components were stolen. This was discovered Tuesday Nov27th; police report filed. Initial repairs completed January 19th, but still some techinical issues to work through.

Members will need to charge ALL batteries at home or bring their own resources to charge batteries.

Best estimate for completion of repairs: Late-April 2019.

 
Field Safety!

Have a personal plan for safety! Maybe a fire extinguisher and first aid kit in your car.  HCAM field has both in the First Aid steel box which has to be locked due to theft.

Some uninvited night visitors at the field....be sure not to leave any RC gear behind. Lock everything up.  Keep an eye on your car if you leave it open while flying. Personal awarenss is the key to a happy day of flying. Summer coming fast! Have sun and insect protection, water & a plan for severe heat, humidity.

Club EVENTS?

If members want fly-ins or auctions, or fun-flys---you need to (1.) tell your club leaders and (2.) volunteer to help the set-up, running the event and take-down after the event.  We have a EF1 Pylon race in May, nothing else on club calendar other than monthly meetings. We can do ANYTHING, but it takes member involvement.
