The next club meeting will be held October 1st, 7:30pm at Bell's Nursery.
September's winner of the Anchorage House of Hobbies' Pretty Plane contest is Tom Risdal! This beautiful Buzzard Bombshell was rebuilt from a garage sale special. The Bombshell Buzzard is a 1940's design and SAM eligible. Tom had to strip the wing, repair the structure, and recover. Tom was down from Fairbanks for our IMAC contest and brought this plane with him for some flights at the field. Tom 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.
