Prez Sez January 2015

Hi from the Saints club.  I hope you had
a happy and safe Christmas.

Christmas Party

We had our Christmas Party at Tony’s On the Main.  There were about 15 people there.   Sorry so many of you could not attend, but we had a good time.  There were two $50 door prizes given out to attendees at the party.  We also drew for the two $100 attendance prizes.  The attendance prizes were drawn from the yellow tickets that members fill out at each meeting.  The winners did not have to be present.

Next Meeting

Hope to see you at the next meeting.  The next regular meeting will be on January 8th at 7:00 P.M. at the Mark Twain hobby shop.  Remember to bring your winter projects to show, and if you haven’t signed up yet by mail bring your checks made out to the Saints R/C Club.  Dues are $125, same as last year.

Field Sign on the Gate

The sign on the gate broke off and was on the ground.  I have not heard from anyone that knows where the sign came from.  If anyone knows who had the sign made, let me know so we can get another made.  The owner wants it on the gate.

Memberships Due

All memberships were due in December.  A new application was attached to the December email.  If you still need one, you can download it from the web site -

Remember to mail (yes – snail mail) the application and checks to Doug Sanders at the address on the application.


Meeting Minutes. 

September Meeting Minutes (11/13/2014)


Meeting called to order 11/13//2014 by President, Richard Jenkins. 


Roll call was done by the President. It was good to see Dick Magee present at the meeting.  There were 10 members in attendance. There are currently 63 members on board so far this year and 7 openings at this time.


Our Treasurer, Mike Dierker was present and he gave treasures report. 


There was a motion to accept the Treasures report as given.  Approved.


There was a motion to accept the Secretary’s report as printed.  Approved. 


Field committee report: The field was in bad shape.  It looked as if some farm equipment, most likely tractors, left ruts and deep tire tracks which stretched the length of the field from north to south.  Landing from the east or west was extremely hazardous.


There were no safety incidents to report. 


Old business: We had nominations for officers in last months meeting with the exception of the Vice President position.  Doug Sanders volunteered this month fill this role.  He is the new Vice President of our club.  We will change the address on the new membership application and also the web page.  Doug will get the laminator from Dick McGee.  There a small discussion on how to handle the applications from Mike Dierker.  By acclimation, we voted all the officers in at the same time. 


New Business:  We took a vote for the most outstanding member of the year.  Nominees were written down on paper.  Next we did made nominations for Officer of the Year and the ‘Crash of the Year’ belongs to Richard Jenkins.  He talked about how he folded the wing one of his planes.
