2005 Electric Contest Results

The 2005 Electric Contest ended October 8th.  The competition was so close that first place was not decided until the last couple of heats.  In the end, Marvin King barely edged out Don King and Dennis Kedziora.  Dennis was winner of the 2004 season's Electric Contest.  This year Don King placed 2nd and Dennis 3rd.  Great job guys!

Good Member and Friend, Mike Labowski Passes

I have sad news today.  Mike Labosky, our Sergeant at Arms and member for twenty plus years passed away last Friday, June 5th, 2004.  Mike had been battling his way back to health after bypass surgery last year.  A good member and friend, Mike gave many hours of service to the club even with his failing health.  Mike and his uncanny style of flying will be greatly missed.

 

You may pay your respects to Mike and his family 2 - 4 and 7 - 9 p.m.  Monday at Tomon & Sons Funeral Home, 7327 Pearl Rd., Middleburg Hts. (South of Bagley).  Funeral Service will be at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, June 8 at Bethany Lutheran Church, 6041 Ridge Rd.

Litchfield Field Readied for Takeoff

It looks like the monsoon season has ended and things are pretty much dried out.  A special thanks to all that pitched in and got things in order after several wash outs.  Don and Marvin King especially contributed a lot of hours moving gravel, moving more gravel and cutting grass so we can all enjoy having a runway to fly from.  Please give them your thanks.  The owners did a final repair (second time) of the culvert and bridge across the stream.  It looks like it will stand for a long time, less we get a bigger flood that this year's.  The parking area is dry and firm.  About 3/4 of the runway is mowed and quite flyable.  The south/west quadrant is still uncut but it should be soon. So don't be shy. Come out and enjoy the sun, fine fellowship and fly a ship or two.

Oh-Oh Litchfield Field Road Washed Out

Bad news at the field today.   We got word from the owners that most of the gravel was washed out around the culvert in the storms Wednesday.  The owner is going to be working on the repair this Thursday and the road will be closed. Please do not try and use the field for the next several days.   The Electric Contest may be canceled again this Sunday, May 23rd. Watch your E-Mail closely for an update on the contest or other developments at the field.
