Please read the letter from Steve Graham in this newsletter!
On Sunday July 16th we concluded the 2017 version of the Lamar Steen Commemorative IMAC Challenge. To quote an email from one of the long time
competing pilots, “It was the most fun I have had at a contest ever” We ran only one flight line with 10 pilots competing in 5 classes. Since there was only 1 flight line it was a pretty relaxed contest. Still in the two days we had 60 competition flights and zero airplane mishaps, well one pilot did bounce a landing and break a prop.
I would like to thank all of the club members and former club member for the great job they did working and helping at the contest.
and a special thank you to Hank Barron for cooking lunch both days and to Larry Ott for the very important job of score keeping.
Also special thanks to Terri Ott for supplying and making the awards!
I hope we have as much success with the Pattern contest in August.
On June 13 2017 Bethesda Lutheran Communities made their third annual visit to MAS flying field. A great time was had by all! I was a little preoccupied, so the only pictures I got were group photos at the end. We hosted 11 Developmentally Disabled young adults and 4 staff members!
A HUGE thanks to members Bob Salmon, Bob Steinberg, Lee Overholt, and Earl Keffer for flying and helping the young adults and to Connie Kerr and Isabelle Kerr for serving lunch!!
All the young adults and staff members from Bethesda had a fantastic time! They all had smiles on their faces the whole time they were at the field! That is what it is all about, those wonderful smiles!
A reminder to the club members that Bethesda Lutheran Communities will be at the field on June 13 from ~10:00 AM – 1:00 PM to experience the thrill of RC flight. Bethesda Lutheran Communities cares for developmentally disabled adults. Bethesda Lutheran Communities
