we look to the west.
- Craig's was for designing our club benches and doing that epoxy resin coating on the three flat top tables.
two members took their professional skills and donated them to the
club. We hope to do the same in January of 2020 for any members who
contribute in outstanding ways.
permit for the club to use the land expires in September. We are
working with the city immediately to begin work to renew that permit.
This is the first year the club will operate fully as its incorporated
entity "Chollas RC Flyers" and we will be having the permit tied to that
instead of an individual.
have installed a new larger and colored sign on the front gate. We hope
this will attract a little more awareness of the club's presence. We
also replaced an old sign on the bulletin board. The club's officers are
continuing to work on making the facility a lot nicer and better kept
up. We would like to thank all of the club members (Such as Floyd and Derrall) for doing the weed maintenance at the club!
you are interested in a club t shirt talk to our vice president, Jesus
Romero. They look really nice and have the club's new logo. They are
currently available in white and gray.
Molloy has been helping the club a lot with connecting with other
clubs, helping to attract new members and has been attending board
meetings. In early January, Sean was asked to become an official officer
/ board member of the RC club. His role is going to be "Public
Relations". Our goal is to help grow the club back to a nice 100
members. We are currently at 50 members.
club will be receiving a totally new website some time this year. We
are working to make it so new members and renewals can join online and
pay through PayPal. There are plans to enable guests to pay for events
We also plan to allow members to have an account to manage their own contact details (phone, email, mailing, etc.)
talked to the city employees about the runway. There were originally
plans to dig up the part of the runway that is sinking to investigate
what is causing that - they would then back fill the land to be level.
Due to the rains, there are no plans right now perform any work. We will
periodically ask for updates and provide them to the club at meetings.
are also aware of the big problem with the cobblestones at gates and
are trying to find approved solutions to make it easier for members to
open/close the gates and also accommodate the multi tonnage trucks the
city has going in and out during the week.
you all for coming out, if you have any questions, comments or things
you would like to bring up for the board to discuss at the next board
meeting and field meeting please contact us at email@example.com.

Hello current and former members.
A new board has been elected at Chollas Park RC Flyers. I would like to introduce myself as your new club president, my name is Austin Heilman and our new vice president is Dylan Newby.
Earlier this year, Harley Davis, our former president decided that 2017 would be his final year leading the club. For ten years, Harley put a tremendous amount of his own time and money into sustaining the club’s operations.
I also would like to thank Harley and Gene Tassin for making it possible for our club to have its first ever helicopter fun fly in July. The new board plans to keep this event going annually as well as establishing an annual airplane fun fly!
Dylan and I promise to work very hard to try to retain club members, gain new club members and promote a very fun atmosphere at the club. We hope to maintain a good relationship with other clubs in San Diego and our local hobby stores. We want to promote all forms of model aviation at our club.
Some of our 2018 goals are
- Recurring revenue from events to help keep the club open.
- Incorporate the club with a 501(c)(7) non-profit license.
- Remove old furniture and chairs accumulating around the club.
- New benches (huge thanks to Craig Woodward for taking on this task)
- Build a new shade covering closer to where vehicles park to increase safe distance from the Runway.
- Improve the club website
We really need your support. If you have not yet renewed for 2018, please fill out the membership form included with this envelope.
Austin Heilman - President
Dylan Newby - Vice President
