Winter Meeting / Indoor Fun Fly

Dear Pegasus Members,

We have decided to combine the club meeting and an indoor fly.  If you have an FPV Quad, bring it we will be trying our first indoor race!

Where: Salvation Army Gymnasium – 525 George Street, Hagerstown, MD 21740

When: Sunday February 21st  – 2-4 PM

We will start with the meeting at 2 PM and then Fly.

Hope to see everyone there!

On another note, we have been bombarded about questions on the FAA Guidelines that you agree to when you register with the FAA.  We are a Community Based Flying organization protected by AMA.  As long as we are flying by AMA rules there should be no intervention of FAA or law enforcement.  Should law enforcement come to the field and ask you to stop flying, please abide politely and get the officers name and as much information as possible, and contact one of the club officers so we can get AMA to rectify.

We will not be policing to see the each pilot is registered with the FAA!  This is up to each individual!

In case you have not received from the AMA below is a link to an informational video about the FAA Guidelines.

FAA

As you know the FAA is trying to impose more rules because of people flying drones irresponsibly and jeopardizing the safety of full scale aircraft.

 

The AMA is working to rectify AMA members having to register with the FAA.  If you have not already registered please don’t until AMA advises otherwise.

 

Also there is a link to FAA’s comment page.  Please comment on these new ridiculous rules!  It’s time to stop complaining and start taking action!!

A letter from the President

Dear Club Members,

I want to thank everyone that came and participated in the November’s membership meeting. As you know we covered quite a few topics including election of new club officers:

President: Mark Gaylor
Vice President: Danny Bradshaw
Treasurer: Paul Vantries
Secretary: Mike Frey

One of the main topics that was discussed was the financial status of the club. Unfortunately due to an end of year deficit, lack of 2014 membership and cost of mowing, it was discussed and agreed that the 2015 membership would need to be raised to $70 per year. Since the meeting, our new accountants discovered some additional funds that had not been accounted for that will take care of expenses due through the end of the year.

2015 Membership Dues: $70 per year.
Youth Dues 18 and under: $20 per year with paying adult member.

Membership dues can be paid in several ways–>

-Paypal: Log into your PayPal account and click on “Send Money to Friends or Family”. In the form enter treasurer@pegasusrc.com on the “To:” box, $70 in the “Amount” box. **Please fund this from your PayPal or Bank Account and not a Credit Card. This gets us away from the 4% fee). Click Send to Finalize the Payment.

-Nexgen Hobby – will have membership cards. Cash or Checks only, Credit Cards not accepted for dues.

-Mail to: Paul Vantries (Or see Website application for details)
1016 Corbett Street
Hagerstown, MD 21740

-Polar Bear Fly – New Years Day 1/1/2015

Hopefully we will have increased membership for 2015, so we can look at possibly reducing dues for 2016. I would like to challenge all current members to engage in bringing at least one new member next year!
