Hello Grassfield members,
Unfortunately the Spring Builders Show scheduled for April 10th has been canceled. Since the Builders Show was the final date reserved at the Osseo Community Center it will not be re-scheduled. As much as I’m going to miss seeing you all at the meeting along with all the great build projects you’ve worked on over the winter it is far more important that we social distance ourselves. I am optimistic that we will be able to resume our meetings again in the fall.
Although we will not all be able to hold a Builders Show meeting, I invite you to share your winter build projects. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a short write-up that describes the model you built. Be sure to attach a few photos. We will post the builds on our website (www.grassfieldrc.org) and then hold an online vote for the “Grassfield Model of the Year”. The winner will have their model displayed on the 2021 membership card. Please send your entry by April 13th. We will open the voting shortly after.
The Spring Cleanup day scheduled for Saturday April 11th along with Tuesday Trainer days have been postponed as well. I will keep you all notified as to when we can re-schedule the field cleanup as well as restart the Tuesday Trainer days.
Construction on the new 101st/169 interchange has begun and 101st Ave has been blocked at Hwy 169. Currently members can still access the field from the west by turning onto 101st Ave from Jefferson Hwy. Avoid flying over the construction area and make certain not to fly over any construction workers. I also want to remind everyone that it is critical we do not crowd the field at this time. Please limit your time at the field. Distance not only yourselves but park your vehicles away from one another. Leave the field if there are more than 10 pilots. The field remains open for now, but it will be shut down if issues arise.
Please stay safe everyone and I look forward to seeing you all soon.
