At the September general meeting we will open nominations for the slate of officers and board members for the 2015 year. Any person nominated must accept the nomination either in person or by emailing me. Any person considering running for a position should plan on trying to attend all the board meetings and general meetings. General meeting are the third Thursday of each month and board meetings are the last Wednesday of the month.

First, I want to remind everyone about our Fourth-of-July Barbecue and fun fly at the field. Hope you can attend as it’s a great way to see and get acquainted with some of the club members you may not always get to see. ‘It’s also our 59th birthday as a club!’ (ed)

This past Memorial Day weekend the Palomar RC Flyers hosted the San Diego Heli Fun Fly. The event was promoted by Heli chairman Philip Degarmo with some help from Scott Dedic. Thanks to Horizon Hobby, Assurance RC and Align, and Sirocco Helis for sponsoring this event, it was fun giving away a new DX9 radio not to mention a number of nice heli kits!  With 71 pilots registering the event was very successful and everybody attending seemed to have a great time. Thanks to Joe Villarreal for heading up the cooking team, Jim Jenkins for all his help keeping the flight line safe, Tom “Blackie” Blackburn for first aide all weekend, Patrick Pranica, Bob Broughton, Mike Lonnecker for keeping the registration and raffle table up to speed. Also want to recognize Scott Page, and Bob Frazier for having my back all weekend and the help with set up and tear down. I know I’m leaving many of those that helped unmentioned but know that I appreciate all the help and support that you all gave to make this an outstanding event.
