Field temporarily closed due to standing water….

As some of you may have already seen, the field has been saturated for a couple of weeks and is now pretty much a marsh.

That being said, I have to address damage being done to the field by individuals trying to maneuver about.  We need to face the facts….it’s too wet on the field to fly.  Period.

And since there are some that can’t make that call from the gate, I have decided to lock up the gate. Let’s give it a while to (hopefully) drain.  I know this sounds like an inconvenience but I can’t/we can’t allow more damage to the field.

I will watch the forecast and hopefully we’ll get some relief soon.

If you’d like to see what the field looked like today when we were out there, my wife came along to take pictures (thank you Patricia) and you can see them in the slideshow below. You can either let them cycle by or click on the pic to advance.

This will definitely be a topic for discussion at our next meeting, plan on discussing this at length…

P.S.-
I asked Adam to give me a hand and we stood up the honey bucket that fell over.  No harm done…shix has dissolved into the ground, gone like tears in the rain….

CMHC loses a member, and the membership loses a friend…

It is with a heavy heart that I post this.  Many of you may have seen the posts on Facebook about the passing of Bryan Harvey, and it’s true, as surreal as it may still seem.

I was contacted by his mother, Cathy Harvey, late in the afternoon yesterday (Friday) and she told me of his passing.  The family is still grappling with the sudden loss of a son and father, so news of a service is yet to come.

I will send a mass mail to the membership to inform those that I have not reached by phone and that will most likely be how I communicate any information I am given.

Please join me in keeping our friend Bryan and his family in our thoughts, in our hearts and in our prayers.  He will be dearly missed…
