Reminder that the AMA website has posted the TRUST test. The expectation is that all AMA members pass the test in order to renew their registration. You must pass the test to maintain your KCRC Club membership in good standing. To date only 5 members have taken and passed the test.

Personal checks are required for the KCRC Christmas party to be held at Rodney’s on December 5. All checks need to be received by Friday November 26 to guarantee our reservation.

Please have your 2022 dues paid by December 31 to avoid the $25.00 late fee.

New Business

The Club will hold the 2022 Officers election at the November 29th meeting. An email will be sent to the Club for their recommendations for all Club positions.

The annual KCRC Christmas party is scheduled for Sunday December 5 at 5pm at Rodney’s on Arona Rd. There will be a Chinese auction for prizes and party baskets.

The Club would like to get the membership engaged in in-door flying in the evenings or on Saturday. This event would be held at the Sewickley Township Rec Center located in Herminie. Eric Haberman or Jim Kealey will contact the Rec Center coordinator regarding open dates which will be discussed at the November business meeting.

In order to bring in new members, AMA Park Flyer and Limited memberships were discussed. The officers decided to have an Advisory Committee meeting to define the requirements, certification process, and dues. Agenda items will include: dues reduction for Senior members, Lifetime Memberships, updating the By-laws and Field Rules, and use of  the LINE app for members who can’t attend regular meetings.
