Oh, and MIS now sees fit to charge us $250/year to use the campground. Any club donations to offset the cost would be greatly appreciated. (small beans to MIS but not so much to us)

The JMRC will once again have a display setup at the Mason Aviation day on August 17. This will be at the Mason Jewett Airport (Eden Road @ Kipp Road in Mason). We need a few folks to come out with display models and talk to visitors about the JMRC. We always have lots of folks stopping by.
And we can usually swing a free lunch.
Please let us know if you can stop by and help.
