Indoor and summer flying will not be the same without the presence of Larry Roy. A Wimac regular these past years with his sidekick Laura, he did not survive his latest hospital stay and left us on December 24th. Our condolences to the family.

Field Information
Jan 10, 2007 - 1:08 AM - by xed
Roll Call
In the interests of safety, please take the time to announce your intentions to go to the field. Flying alone can be dangerous and is discouraged at our club.

Field Access Procedures
The gate is to be kept closed at all times due to the fact that people have been dumping on the property behind the parking lot and the city is forcing the school to pay for the clean-up. Therefore, close the gate after you come in as well as after you leave.

Garbage Disposal
You are responsible for any garbage you bring to the field. Please do not leave any mess behind for others to deal with.

Lawn Cutting
All aircraft are to be grounded while the lawn is being cut and do not make the guy wait until you are through flying. He is not paid by the hour. If he is losing his time, this could result in higher grass cutting fees for the club. This should be obvious but apparently it is not.

runway in winter
Jan 08, 2017 - 1:40 PM - by antoine zabal
I went yesterday as a spectator.
It looks like a busy flying day.

I was sad to see some deep boot holes on the runway.

I always bring snowshoes (raquettes) it is easier to go around to the end of the runway and retrieve your plane from the other side of the runway in order to keep a nice smooth landing strip close to the pitt.

Fishing rod is also good to retrieve a cartwheeled plane.

If you have no other choice, a good idea is to bring a shovel with you and fill up the holes you left .

This will certainly help smooth sailing..I mean flying...
