A few intrepid souls braved the heat to go flying on the Fourth of July…

Thanks for the pictures, Karen!
Good meeting… Nineteen? attendees… many topics discussed… and good food, too!
Ben flew his electric Bearcat Racer… and John B flew his quad-motor Kadet!
The original plan was to try to do some night-flying with planes lit with LED lights… but the wind really came-up strong during dinner and no night-fly was possible.
NICE GROUP EFFORT to make the dinner “Happen”… Special Thanks to Mary Griffis for coordinating the RSVPs and for all of the work she does “in the background”…. And Thanks to Dan and Mary for acting as the hosts at the meeting and for providing “the fixin’s” for the burgers. … ‘Sorry I did not pay attention to “who brought what” to the dinner… but, beside the burgers that Dan grilled for us, there was pot of meatball/miniature hot dogs in a spicy red sauce (that I heard had been simmering all day)… Jon Wilson brought a really nice homemade potato salad; there was an assortment of store-bought sides and a nice bunch of store-bought cookies… Plenty of food with even a few cookies left over!
Nice evening meeting… don’t know if we will be meeting “inside” or “out” next month.
The Warbird Races went full-throttle into the record books! … well attended, plenty of competition, and one of the hottest days on record!
Coming in first, second and third for their respective classes were:
… and some of the Kingman racing team members got together, today, to start prepping the field for the event!
The Kingman RC Modelers field is ALWAYS in pretty good shape, but the Warbird Race Events draw a pretty big crowd from all-over everywhere! and the club’s racers want to make a nice impression… so they donated their Sunday, this week, to doing a little weed-raking and runway maintenance. … the day wasn’t too hot, but the wind was SCREAMIN’!
… Let’s hope for “a bit less wind” on the big day, right?!
