  Club Meeting Notes for December 16, 2017 

Not enough members present to create a quorum.

 Chollas Park RC Flyers
Newsletter Quarter 4 - 2017

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.

Thank you,

Austin Heilman - President
Dylan Newby - Vice President
