October 13, 2014 MRCSS Meeting Minutes

The October meeting of MRCSS was held at the Southdale Library on Thursday 10/13/2014. David Engelson presided.

Jack Perecman, MRCSS Treasurer, reported a balance in the club account of $2,309. This money will mainly be used for gifts to landowners at year-end, where we typically spend about $1300. There are a few small expenses outstanding as well. Landowner gift amounts should be decided on at the November meeting.

Ben Hocker, MRCSS Secretary, noted that the next three monthly meetings are scheduled for the Southdale library on:

  • Tuesday, November 25th
  • Thursday, December 18th
  • Thursday, January 15th
These are on the MRCSS website as Upcoming Events and also appear on the Events Calendar. Note that, because of holidays and room availability, not all of these dates follow our normal “3rd Thursday of the month” schedule.

Several planes were described in show-and-tell. It was announced that Pixel slope plane kits are available once again. Rich Ness has info.

David Engelson showed photos from the SledWorks Aerotow last August, and from slope flying at Mounds Park in St Paul.

David E presented the next iterations on the designs for a new MRCSS T-shirt. There was general agreement on the preferred design concept. David will send out some final versions by email with differing colors for feedback. He will be contacting vendors for estimates on costs, etc. and we should be ready to obtain shirts soon.

The meeting concluded with a show of pictures submitted by various members which illustrated some of their favorite memories which sparked early interest in aviation and models.
