February

Hey All,
Well, It’s February! The football season has officially come to an end!
I hope this finds you all having a wonderful winter!
The snow has been teasing us here in the Southern Willamette Valley by displaying itself in the Coburg Hills, for the most part!
I have been working on my winter build model, and it is always nice to hear the rain outside, and knowing it is piling snow in the mountains, where it belongs, I might add!

The Eugene RC Aeronauts will be having our “All Expenses Paid, Exclusive Hand Held Dinner Meeting” on Tuesday, the 19th of February!
If you have not renewed your membership, please come to the club meeting this month, and do so, while enjoying the company of fellow balsa dust breathers!

May the effects of gravity go easy on your planes this year! Hope to see you all soon!
Roger

March

Hey All,
Is it gonna snow, or be warm and beautiful? It must be almost Spring!
I’ve been working like one of Santa’s elves to try to get my winter build airplane to turn into a Spring flying plane! The recent warm sunny days are mocking me, and saying “you’ll never make it”, but I’m pushing on!
This time of year is always fun to see, as we start coming out of hibernation, and look for the fun ahead of us!
I hope you can join us for this month’s meeting!

April

Hey All,

So, it looks like we have many “Float Fly” locations suddenly popping up all around the valley, as rough fields are transformed into smooth, shallow “lakes”!
We should have known that snow in March would be followed up with flooding in April! Any guesses on what comes next?

Working on my airplane for the Mickey Cohen Memorial Winter Build has been high on my “to do” list, as we are quickly running out of “Winter”!
I hope those who are going to participate are beginning to wrap things up for the May 18 big day! Nothing motivates like a deadline!

Our club meeting will be on Tuesday, April 16 this month, at Abby’s Pizza on River Road! I hope to see all of you there!

Roger Dahl
