We hope you are able to find the information you need from this site to assist you in learning more about us. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us!
Good Afternoon Everyone.
Spring is upon us and that means the flying season is getting started! If we haven’t seen you at the field yet, we hope to see you soon. We are getting a little bit of a late start on our spring and summer activities but we have a lot of club business to attend to to get the field ready for spring and summer and also for the coming year. Much of the business impacts the future of the club so we need as many of our members a the next club meeting as possible so that your voice can be heard. In case you haven’t heard, the club meetings were changed from the second Monday of each month to the first, however for May we are going to revert back to the second Monday for one month only. The May club meeting will be May 13th at Upper Cuts in Simpsonville at 7:00PM. Please mark your calendars and try to be in attendance.
Things on the agenda for the club meeting:
Club By-Law review
Current state of club membership
Current financial position of the club
Spring/Summer field maintenance (grass cutting, mower maintenance, etc)
Lease renewal for the field
Future of the Porta-John
Club dues for 2013/2014 club year (if possible we would like to collect dues early this year at the May meeting)
If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know asap. Also if you have anything you would like to be address that is not on the list above, please let me know. Every members presence is preferred, however if you are unable to attend for any reason, it would be appreciated if you would let me know ahead of time so that we can discuss the topics prior to the meeting and arrange a proxy.
Thank you all,
Club meetings have changed to the first Monday of each month. They will still be held at Upper Cuts in Simpsonville at 7:00pm. Please mark your calendars.
