[OCRCC 2014 Field Move Presentation]

Last night we had our July club meeting. At this meeting we went through the attached slideshow to give everyone a complete update on the club membership, financial breakdown of expenditures, and review of our new flying site.

Attached is the slideshow so everyone has all the details that were presented and what we are facing in order to occupy and use the new site. I encourage everyone who was not in attendance to review and let me know any questions you may have.

The main areas of concern are what the site requires in order to make it usable for all our members. First there is an existing debris area that must be covered before we are permitted to utilize the site. The overall flying area is similar to our current site with the benefit of the runway area being more centered. Second the existing concrete area that would become the runway is only 190 feet wide, which is much shorter than what we use today. This must be extended to at least what we currently use or many will not be able to takeoff or land at the new site.

Our last day at the current site is Sunday, July 20th. We must all act immediately in order to continue to enjoy flying at OCRCC.

We need to complete the work required before we can use the new site. This requires significant funds, which we don't have. You will see in the slideshow that our Ideal Plan requires $22,917 in additional funds. We had over 80 members in attendance last night and convened a general meeting with a motion and second to have a special member assessment of $100. This was passed unanimously by all in attendance. We have already collected $2,500 so we can proceed with the work to cover the debris field which will permit us to occupy the site. We must collect the additional amount from all Full Members (adult) within the next few days in order to proceed with the installation of the asphalt runway extension of 150 feet.

Without everyone's support we could be faced with a delay and greater cost to extend the runway sometime in the future.

This is your flying field so we all need to help fund this project.

Please send your payment for the $100 OCRCC member assessment to:

OCRCC
PO Box 7134
Laguna Niguel, CA 92607


If you prefer to deliver in person or cash I will be at the field Saturday morning to collect payments.

Thanks, Greg

AT6 Texan has been used extensively in air races. Highly modified ones such as this are seen at racing circuits hitting speed in excess of 100mph!

F16 models such as this have been popularized with advancements in electric ducted fan (EDF) technology. This particular model can reach speed of 140mph!

This is a highly sophisticated micro RC helicopter, Align T-Rex 250. Capable of full 3D aerobatic routine, yet small enough to fit on the palm of your hand!

One of the more popular scale warbird at the field, F4U Corsair, has distinctive gull wings. This is an all foam E-Flight model coming in for landing.

Truely a classic, the Cessna Skylane 182 was introduced in 1956 and has taught tens of thousands how to fly. This scaled version is also a good trainer for the RC pilots.

This Andrew Jesky designed "Slick" is a high performance 3D aerobatic plane. In the hands of capable pilots they can perform just about any manuevers.

One of the more well known axis warbird of the World War II era, German FW-190, makes its way onto the Great Park taxi way.

A great racers of 1930, the Granville Brothers Gee Bee, is faithfully reproduced by this scale model kit.
