RC Christmas

This says Merry Christmas best I think.

Christmas is quickly coming up upon us and most of our planes are tucked away safely for the climate we find to be non-conducive to enjoyable flight or practice time. BUT, when that corner is turned and we say goodbye to 2015 and hello to 2016 we start quickly out of the gate with a judging school in Shreveport LA. January 9th and 10th.

By far our biggest issues in 2015 revolved around qualified judging pool and it is time to buckle down and tackle this problem. Let’s fill this judging class and expand our judging pool considerably!

I again want to thank each and everyone of you for your commitment to SC and your support to myself and the other ARD’s to the re-build year in 2015. We made some huge strides to again expanding both our head count and new contests on the schedule. We are also continuing to work on that for 2016 with Abilene coming back to the schedule and Benbrook also coming back as our anchor in late October. Dates yet to be confirmed but I credit the members with this. Also as a side note, PLEASE make sure your Membership is current and up to date before December 31st 2015 as this is what funds our region for the 2016 season.

The NATS have also been posted and hope to get a deep pool of SC pilots to “Represent” come July!

You can sign up for the NATS here: http://www.mini-iac.org/Event-Details/PID/109 and the cut off date to register is June 20th so make sure you mark on your calendars.

Here is my wish to each of you for great family time for the holidays and safe travels as you visit friends and family and also that Santa puts those much coveted RC gifts under your trees!
