Annual General Meeting

Our AGM was held Sunday, December 10, with 42 members and 1 guest in attendance and a swap meet to buy your own Christmas present. 

 

All the motions that were included on the Agenda were passed -  

  1. No fees charged to juniors;
  2. Vice President to handle new member enquires; 
  3. The Exec to do up a comprehensive 5 year plan to bring before the membership; and
  4. To take advantage of an offer from Nanaimo Parks, Leo Katila has been heading up a committee to deal with the offer of a new flying field which must be headed up by a Nanaimo organization.  To get things off the ground they have asked for a grant of up to $2000, on as needed basis.  The advantage to us.  If we lose our field for Fire Season, extended use by military, or whatever else, we will still have somewhere to fly.  Some field restrictions: it will be Electric Only and it is smaller that our field.

 

A new Calendar was released, Trophies given out, and always there were lots of B(ig) S(tories) flung around.

 

The AGM Minutes have been posted in the Members' Section.

End of Season Fun Fly and Pot Luck

Here's some shots from the end of season fun fly and pot-luck held on September 16th.

Geoff Graham has provided a photo of our field during this event that gives a totally different view of it.

Very few mishaps except both Brian Coolican and Craig McQuarrie had their props fly off on their electric powered aircraft.

The pot-luck was a great success with the addition of hamburgers and other delights cooked on site; a first for the club and I'm sure will lead to better cookouts in the future. All in all a great day and everyone attending enjoyed themselves.
