There are no new reports because of us not being able to have meetings thanks to the covid-19 virus. But here we are again back in our same meeting room. It was great seeing everyone at our meeting.

Frank says the IMAC circuit is in full swing, in a matter of fact they never let. There is a scale event and a IMAC event this weekend in Phoenix. Warren Washington asked if there are any restrictions at these events. Frank said yes there are, but no one seems to pay attention to it.

Greg Thomas reported on an event he attended in January.
We went to Winter Warbird event. This was an event held by Tony Quist each year. They limited it to pilots only. We had a few minor bumps and starches, nothing major. And my blue jet won an award.  Fun was had by all.

Horizon is coming out with a large OV10 ARF. It has 108” wingspan.

It looks like so far the Irvine Event is going to happen this year in June.

Gil reported on the repaving of the Bennett Fling Field has been postponed for hopefully a couple more weeks. Once they start it take about 8 days to complete.

Barry Mattison will be running for the Vice President of District 10 this year. Barry would like your vote.

As Greg Thomas mentioned as the Bone People are out digging up bones while we are flying overhead they are quite concerned. This puts our flying events into question, weather we can even have another one.  So as new rules and regulations are put in place, example; FRIA (FAA Recognized Identification Area) this is all convoluted. There are no FRIA’s yet. Everything is all up in the air at this point.

Gil says: even the FAA is not sure what is going on at this point. Frank says: So we are going to fly as we have all along until someone officially says otherwise. Frank saw a Cessna 172 flying about 30 feet over our parking lot.

Robert Roy can now laser your parts for you give him a call.702-203-1030.
