 Next Club Meeting will be set for FEB 13th 
 **Look for a Zoom invite from club Secretary John McDill a few days prior to that Tuesday.
 
 
 
 *******   New points of interest have been added among these pages. *******
 
Look above in the menu bar for a new link, Current Weather, which will give conditions nearest the field. 
West Point, KY is the closest NWS reporting weather station and is located directly across the Ohio river
and reflects the most current weather and forecast nearest to the field.
***If you dont know how to read the wind chart for the speed and
direction, here is a quick link to what the symbol represents.  WIND BARBS
 
Next is an updated page, Contacts and Club Information. A picture is posted for each board member so club
members and anyone interested in our hobby happens to come by the field, may be able
to recognize our elected representives of RRCF.   
As you may see, several members are still pending their friendly faces to be added.
 
Club Dues are coming up for renewal and we are setting up an additional online option for payment. 
This will allow members to enter payment info directly instead of having to go through
PayPal or mailing payment.  This option is fully supported by our banking provider and is widely used
by other online vendors.  Look for a link to Authorize.net which is now live on the Dues Renewal page which is under the Members Only section
 

 

 
 
 
ATTENTION TO ALL ACTIVE MEMBERS
 
       Club communications for club wide notices that memebers need to be made aware of come by two means, email and phone text. 
For email, the all-members email is a distrubtion list of all CURRENT members and is the primary contact used by the BOD/Field Operations Crew for notices
affecting club operations and general contact to the membership.  It has been found that some members have missed important notices pertaining to field closures due to needed maintance and upon further discovery, the email was found in the spam folder of the recipients email client.   
     The other communication avenue is the "txt to fly" phone text group which is managed by Mike Hartman and has been very useful in finding out who may be going to the field to fly or communicate with individual members through texting. 
     Both of these options are a big benefit when communicating short notices and important information that can not wait til the next scheduled club meeting.
The TXT to FLY texting is optional and understand that ceratin rates and cost maybe incured so we do ask that the club all-members email be required so you may be kept updated on club notices that may affect field operations and club business that requires membership awareness and feedback. 
Your attention to this will greatly improve our communication among all of you and the BOD/Officers.  The Field Operations Crew is currenlty being led by Earl Jr and Sr which we greatly appreciate their dedication and drive to maintain our club field to its great presentation to all. 
 
 
 
January 1 Flying
 
Given the more recent weather of Jan 14 as this is being posted, flying by Kent Stroud and Adam Blevins
on January 1 was much warmer for sure.
Mother nature plays with us and gives us small opportunities so some of us take them as they come. 
Keep your shops and work areas warm and know we are on an upswing back to some wamer temperatures.   
Stay warm and see everyone soon at "The Beach"
