Maintenance Day March 24th

With our flying season soon to begin we need to do some work on our launch equipment. So we have scheduled a maintenance day for Sunday, March 24th. We needed to do Sunday because the Man has Roger working his tail off!

Please let us know if you are able to attend. We will need to do some cleaning and soldering.

Lunch is on the JMRC! 

We will be at Roger's house at 4788 Moon Lake Rd. Jackson, MI. We'll start about 10:00am and work until we get done or the food is all gone...

Come on Spring!
