Please Put The Starting Stands Back

Our landowner has asked that we put the starting stands back out of the way after a day of flying.  He needs to get his equipment in and out so please move the stands back before you leave.

Sunday Morning Flying

Our land owner has asked that we refrain from flying models or starting engines on Sunday mornings before noon.  The nearby church service is over by 11:30 so please refrain from disturbing them on Sunday mornings.  They only have that one service so it should not be great inconvenience to flyers.  Also if they should be having a funeral or wedding please respect the service.  Our land owner goes to this church so we want to be flexible.  Thanks for your cooperation and understanding.  We will discuss more at the next meeting.
