The next club meeting is the annual Christmas dinner. That will be held at China Lights, 9220 Old Seward Hwy, Tuesday 12/03/19 at 7pm.
This month's winner of the Anchorage House of Hobbies' Pretty Plane contest is Rohan! He built this from a Stevens Aeromodel kit he purchased from Anchorage House of Hobbies. The kit is the "Swift 100" which is loosely inspired by the 1930s Britich classic, the Comper Swift. Features 4-channel controls and weighs in at a mere 3 ounces! Apparently it lives up to its name and is a fast flyer! Rohan wins a $50 gift certificate from Anchorage House of Hobbies for his excellent craftsmanship!
JBER RC REMAINS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE! The military implemented a new regulation as of late December 2015 that closes JBER RC field when the base is at threat level FPCON B (which it is currently) or higher. Do not attempt to go out there for any reason until further notice. We will be able to fly on base again when the threat level is lowered or when they change that policy. Base Ops and security has been alerted to not allow anybody to fly out there.
