Weekend - June 10/11

The grass is mowed at SP and the weather is looking good. Winds do look to be a little higher than ideal but certainly well within flying limits.

There are some local events / fun flys that members are considering for the weekend. ASRCM is having an open house / fun fly on Saturday and there is a float fly in the Chester area. Anyone able to share their plans?

The ASRCM website is surprisingly quiet regarding this event. I am assuming that this is still a go for tomorrow but I am also wondering about the road conditions with this massive amount of rain. I am thinking that SP might be in order tomorrow..... Anyone else?

Latest update from the ASRCM site:

Re: ASRCM 2017 Spring Funfly June 10 rain date June 11

Today at 8:08pm Due to all the rain that we have had all day today, we are going to have to postpone our fun fly until Sunday due to the conditions of the road up to the field. We don't think that the road could handle the traffic tomorrow. We will go up tomorrow and look at the conditions of the and let everyone know what we will do for Sunday.

ASRCM Fun Fly Postponed

New postby saboo on Sat Jun 10, 2017 8:17 pm

From the ASRCM Web site

Ok so here is where we stand. We checked out the road this afternoon and it's far to wet and muddy for any traffic so we are cancelling our fun fly tomorrow too. We have decided to host our event for another try on Saturday June 24 with a rain date of Sunday June 25. Sorry for the inconvenience guys but the conditions weren't in our favor. Hopefully everyone that was planning to attend will be able to make it out on the new date.
