Thank you to those that joined us at the Shake and Shingle Pub for our Annual Luncheon on Dec 20th. We had a fun group of 27 and it was nice to see some of the wives attending. The food was great, conversation noisy and the beer chilled. I hope you all have a Great Safe Christmas and we shall see you at the field in the Spring. All the very best Chris
Wayne checks out Sam’s Electric flying wing with light strips ( Good on a foggy day). Sam says it fly’s great but don’t put it in a spin because it wont recover. Sam is also seen returning with his great flying Spitfire. Maybe when it warms up a tad we can get airborne again.
Our A.G.M. will be held at the Sullivan Hall in Surrey at 8.00 p.m. Doors open at 7.00 p.m. Look forward to seeing you there.
It is with the great sadness I have to inform our members that Clifford Oswald passed away yesterday. Cliff had been battling cancer for many years. I am informed there will be no formal funeral.

This group one is of all the winners for Masters. The Pic from behind the chairs is for BC Championship for 2014.
Jerry won the contest for Masters, in Victoria this past weekend Sept 6 & 7thand for the year 2014 he won the Championship.
Pattern is consists of 5 classes (sportsman, intermediate, Advanced, Masters and FAI )..
Jerry thanked RCFCBC and the executive for our perfect field in 2013-14, with well trimmed grass and understanding pilots, when we needed to practice our sequences we usually flew alone.
The planes that we fly in pattern these days are Electric with a 10 cell 5000mah packs to run the power for the motor and ESC. Plus we have a separate 1200mah pack to run all control surfaces.
Jerry says “These planes fly straight as an arrow and are under 11lbs.”
WELL DONE JERRY

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.
