Just to get the juices flowing, here are some of the late Walters Mollers creations last year at the lake. This event happens twice a year, the first one happening on May 30th into the first week in June. The Spring event is smaller than the Autumn one due to the possibility of stormy weather. However it is still a great time and it’s not only the float flying we love but all the fun that surrounds it.
Now is the time, with all the snow about, to cycle your batteries and give the “old boat” the once over. I am
looking forward to seeing some of the new creations and flying my Northstar off the water for the first time. (Making note to miss the POST). Put it on your calendar for 2014.
Our field is blanketed in snow but shouldn’t be there too much longer if the sun persists. The mower is in for service (thanks Pete A) for the season so we should be ready to go soon. I always fly something slow for the first flight of the year to get the brain and fingers coordinated. Hope everyone is well and look forward to seeing you at the field.
I will put a post on the forum when I will be there to help anyone. Don’t forget to visit our friends at the Shake and Shingle pub for some good food.
Looks like some of the lads had a go in the snow Peter & Sam. One ouchy. The snow looks
Sam & Peter enjoying themselves.
like it’s nearly gone. Bob Ferguson says”They had a good day Wednesday in the snow flying foamies. They belly land nice and soft. It wasn’t even really cold as it was warm in the sun. Of course I was still wearing gloves and a hat to keep my bare head warm. Must not let what brains I had left get cold.”:) Good one Bob and thanks for the pic.
For those that didn’t make it to the field today you were probably a little smarter than those that did. Boy was it cold, 30F and FFFFF foggy. However it warmed up at about 11.00 a.m.and we got a few flights in before the wind got up.. burr..So we had to go to the Pub and warm up….Any excuse right.. The field is in good shape and a big thanks again to Larry for cutting the grass. ( Photo above provided by John Dycke )Take care everyone, be safe and don’t fly alone.
This came to me from Taylor Collins the IMAA editor. Just thought it would be a lovely plane for someone to model. What a lovely beast.
Well the weather is a bit crappy but I hope we will be able to get some flying in soon. So check over your models. They need a pre flight check just like the full scale. My 20 year old Spacewalker (Blue & White) is nearly ready to go again, after a slight mishap on the runway last year. The membership is back up to last years level with some new faces. Make them welcome and keep safe.
See you at the field (or at the shake & Shingle pub ) TTFN Sparky
Hi folks,Well for those that missed it you can see what a great time we had at the 2013 club lunch so don’t miss it next year. The food was great and the air was filled with laughter and chatter. RCFCBC is a great fun club and we are all looking forward to having a fantastic 2014. Have a safe Happy Christmas and we will see you at the field. CJ
Hello fellow members.
On behalf of the club executive I would like to wish you all a Very Happy Christmas and a superb 2014 with no crashes and accidents (if at all possible).
2013 has been a great year and we owe a huge thanks to our very kind landlords for the use of their property.
Again, a big thanks to Larry for keeping our lovely field like a Park Setting. I know he enjoys doing it however we really appreciate what he does and also so do the owners. Well done Larry and Thanks again on behalf of all the club members, for the third year running.
Hi Folks just a reminder of our club meeting this Thursday. Doors open at 7.00 p.m. Meeting commence at 8.00 p.m. I will be taking membership renewals and will bring the laminater so bring your M.A.A.C. card or receipt. Please fill out and sign the membership form, available on the club site, and of course your payment.
All the 2013 executive, when asked run for the following year, agreed and were nominated from the floor.
The balance of Models and materials from the late Walter Kunsters estate will be available at the meeting for purchase.
See you there. Chris.
The airport manager advised us that the control tower confirmed that this model jet aircraft had made the fastest pass ever at the Langley Airport. Members ( sadly some not with us today) look on at all the excitement.
RCFCBC participated in many airshows in past years until transport Canada banned model flying following an incident in Toronto, RCFCBC kept a clean record for all the many events flown, a credit to the skill of the builders and pilots.
Hope you have a lovely evening Rick. It sure was a great day at our field and then a good grin at the Shake & Shingle afterwards. Good to see over a dozen of us at the pub. Doesn’t get better than that. Nice to see Mr Collis safely back from his travels in the US of A.
