Election of 2018 Officers results…
The November Meeting was one for the history books!
It saw an unprecedented member turnout of ~90% despite starting at an earlier time with a special meeting before segueing into the regular meeting where the voting took place, highest attendance at a club meeting ever!
And even more history was made with a nominee withdrawing from the race minutes before the ballots went out, the addition of a member’s Q&A/Comments session of the candidates that allowed for better transparency and for regular members to get more involved in the club’s election process, there were multiple write-in candidates in multiple positions who won their races, and an actual tie in the “Big Race” for Club President culminating in the first run-off vote for a Board Officer that I can remember!!
There was action, adventure, explosions (though no blood), as well as lots of drama with a ballot SNAFU and some shocking admissions of subterfuge and betrayal by one of the remaining nominees! There was victory & heartbreak, winners & losers, whiners & colluders – they could make a Movie of the Week about it (more on that to come)…
But finally, after a highly animated discussion amongst the membership, the election took place! And after the run-off when the dust finally settled, once again you (the Club Members) chose Rob Sawyer to lead you through another year!
So your Board Officer Election results are as follows (and hearty “Congratulations!” are in order as each one was a hard fought victory that did not come easy!):
President: Rob Sawyer (Write-in)
Vice President: Bob Kuntz (Nominee)
Secretary: TBD (nominee withdrew before the vote took place)
Treasurer: Dan Griffis (Write-in)
Tony Guastella – Most improved Flier 2017!
And we had one more winner at the November meeting, Bob Kuntz (last year’s recipient) choose Tony Guastella as this year’s recipient of the perpetual trophy for “Most Improved Flier of the Year”:
“Tony flies regularly in the mornings weather permitting just as I do so I observed his flying all year and in my opinion he constantly improved his skills as the year went on more than anyone else that I observed.” – Bob
And in his new position as VP, Bob also promised to get the trophy engraved with Tony’s name after the first of the year!
Mucho Congrats, Tony!
December’s regular club meeting … date and time to be announced!
Ben Poole’s Drone footage of
Jason flying in the Control-line circle!
Jason and Buckner were flying control-line double “in formation” today, July 22… you can see both of them in the center of the circle… but by the time this video was shot, Buckner’s plane had already touched down. These guys got in several nice flights together!
Thanks, Ben, for the video!
The Kingman RC Modelers
We are a radio control model airplane club located in Kingman, AZ near the Kingman Airport.
Members are flying aircraft with nitro, gas, jet turbine, and electric power of all sizes from our artificial tarmac surface!
Finding the Field is the Tricky part!
Our field is located inside the Kingman Airport Industrial park.
Arrive in Kingman on the 40 Freeway… get off the freeway at Exit 53, Andy Devine/Route 66. Head North/East on Route 66 to Mohave Airport Drive at mile marker 61 and make a right at the light. Turn right at the first stop sign, Industrial Blvd. Then drive about two miles of mostly-paved road… and when you get to the 3-way fork, choose the middle road.
See the map…
… See you there!
