Kalkaska Trout Festival Air Show
The 2013 KAMPS airshow is coming up on Sunday, April 28th. The airshow time is from 2:00pm - 4:00 pm, however open flying will start at 10:00. As usual it'll be controlled by the weather. Last year it was 70s and sunny, this year there is still some snow on the field!
Come show off that winter building project or knock the rust off those thumbs.
Spring is here
Although it doesn't feel like it yet! We've had a real busy winter with indoor flying at several venues. We would like to thank Tom Dundon for setting up our flying at St Francis, Jim (Ooogie) Egert for setting up Stoneheart for all of us, and Chris from CD hobbies for setting up the Kalkaska Middle School indoor flying.
Thank you to all our members for making the Christmas party a success. There were some great dishes brought to pass! Congratulations to Marshal Emmendorfer for the "Best Landing in a Tree" award, Kim Couturier for "Best Lawn Dart" and Eugene Simionescu for "Longest flight withour a Battery"!
At the November meeting the 2013 officers were elected. Kim, Dan and Terry will be serving another year in their respective positions. Rich Walendowski will be the new Vice President. The 2013 Board Members will be Ben Komrska, Brian Green, and Mike Huskins. You can also find the complete list here.
Winter is right around the corner and the indoor flying season has started! Keep an eye on the calendar for upcoming times and dates. With the advances in indoor airplanes and micro helicopters in the last year this winter promises to be one of the most exciting indoor seasons ever!
No excuse for anyone not to get a chance to try their hand at indoor flying. Some of the newer indoor models will really test your flying skills. We should really see some improved flying and some new flyers out at our fields this summer.
