George & Gay

Many of us that fly or flew R.C. started at Fry’s Corner. Instructed by someone that lay on the grass looking like he was sleeping until you got in the Sh*t and he was there like an arrow. George was always there to help. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to George & Gay, this lovely couple that dedicated many many years of their lives to helping us all learn to fly, cutting the grass and looking after Fry’s Corner and on and on. I know they are enjoying retirement and keeping busy all the time however not forgotten.

Just to let you know we still appreciate what you did for us all. Big Hugs. CJ and many of the RCers.

OLD TIMERS FLY AGAIN

old timers 2Dave C and Bill P. flew the Old Timers for the members last weekend. It was the slowest fly past I have ever seen.  This weekend was a workday for a select few to paint 4  tables kindly provided by Don Wadella. Big thanks Don. Painting was carried out today by Bill, Iain, Rick, Collis & your truly. Nice job chaps. Flying commenced at 10.00 a.m. and then off to the pub for a laugh, lunch and a pint. as the rain started to come down pretty good. Flying entertainment was provide by Bill P test flying a rather tail heavy bipe of Waynes and Sparky put his Falcon into a spin and after 3 turns neutralized the controls. The plane continued spinning and spinning, finally coming out after applying some opposite rudder, power and down elevator. Another foot and a bag and a shovel would have been needed, lol. Dave flew his Bee Gee like it was on rails. Good time had by all. Thank you Alan Cheng for the pictures :)

Big thanks to the Grindrod flying club for putting on another great fun event and retrieving  all the dead planes out on the lake. The weather was great with only a couple of rain events and we all seemed to have  a good time. It was unfortunate that two pilots from Seachelt ending up putting there Beavers in the tree. I missed that. I hope they get well soon!

Workparty at our field Sunday 4th May 2014 9.00 a.m.

Hi Folks,

I gather the cows have now have decided to make some holes in our field to add to the trench.  Rick  asked me to post a work party for May the 4th Sunday 9.00 a.m. Maybe a good idea to bring things like shovels, gloves, rakes, wheel barrows etc so we can get the field back and up and running. I am informed that top soil and other material will be on hand.  Cheers Chris

REMINDER – CLUB MEETING THIS THURSDAY APRIL 24th 2014

The RCFCBC is holding a General Club Meeting  at 8 pm at the Sullivan Community Hall located at 6306 152 St, Surrey, BC V3S 3K9. Doors are open at 7.00 pm for chatter and to discuss who made the biggest hole in the ground so far this year. (don’t mention “The Tree”) We don’t have a need for a lot of meetings, as most issues are resolved at the Shake and Shingle Pub on Sunday afternoons over a beer or two (or three) This would be a good time to have any of your questions answered. It will be nice to see everybody.

Hope to see you there……. The executive

Bill Pottage shows his 1/4 scale Balsa USA Sopwith Pup.

The Pup was acquired from the late Walter Kunsters estate and Bill did a fine job finishing it. His first flight was err, interesting as as he lifted off he left a wheel on the runway. Bill landed on one wheel and the plane flopped over. No damage thank goodness.
