Sunday was our club's fun fly at Clayburn Park followed by a BBQ at the president's home. The weather was on our side, light showers overnight and partial cloud cover in the morning and early afternoon then full sun through to dark. For the flying Barrie S., Hube S., Henry H. and myself were ready willing and able to tear up the sky. Hube and his Score put in some nice flights along with Barrie and the Nobler. My turn came and I found the real damage that happened the last time when I "landed" inverted and under power - the motor (electric) was hooped. No flying for me but not all is lost as I can now experiment with changing the shaft to enable the construction of a "hard nose" model. Barrie also flew his Miss BJ for 3 flights - it flys nice and level and does not appear to have any bad habits. Hube left for another required date and Henry put up one, very long - I think he is still going for that endurance record with every model he has - dizzying flight with his Flight Streak.  Gord S. (G2) and his daughter stopped by after a radio control float fun fly in Haney. He said he is trying to get out once this fall and that his daughter has already started a control line build. There may yet be hope that we can introduce this wonderful hobby to the younger generation.
The BBQ was fun - good banter, introducing Arlene to the group and Henry to an electric car. Paul & Janet, Jack & Yvonne, Larry & Barb, Henry & Arlene, Barrie, Hube, and Kath & myself (the other Larry) were in attendance. We also had Muriel's company, which is fair as she puts up with us all year long. Discussions (very refined BS) were held on everything from Larry's car racing to future model builds - trust me they will be incredible if they ever happen, including a scale project for display next July. Good company, good food and good flying - who could ask for more?
