Hi from the Saints club.
Elections at Next Meeting
We will be electing officers for next year at the next meeting. If you can only make one meeting a year, this should be the one. We will have nominations and elections at this meeting since we only had a few members at the last meeting.
Need Treasurer for Next Year
Mike Dierker has decided he cannot continue as club treasurer next year. The club needs someone to step up and volunteer for the important position. As a club member, I hope you consider filling this important position. Mike and I will help anyone to get started. Mike has everything organized and has notes made on everything that needs to be done. You don’t need to be a bookkeeper, just someone willing to serve the club.
At the last meeting we decided to go to Tony’s On the Main “dutch treat” for our Christmas party like we did last year. This will be instead of our regular meeting. We will meet at Tony’s on December 11th at 7:00 p.m. We give away two $100 attendance prizes for members based on a drawing of the attendance tickets you filled out during the year at the meetings. The menu can be seen at: http://www.tonysonmain.com/Tony's-On-Main-Restaurant-Menu.html#Tony's Entrees
The next regular meeting will be on November 12th at 7:00 P.M. at the Mark Twain Hobby shop. As noted above the Christmas dinner will be in place of the December meeting.
We still have openings, so you can still join the club. Just download the application from our web site http://www.saintsrc.com/Documents/Application.pdf and mail it in with your check. The dues are only $35 for the remainder of the year.
Editor’s note: John Buchillon has put pictures and information on the Home Page of our web site (www.saintsrc.com) on the Blade Chroma Quadcopter put on by a Horizon Hobby representative.

For those of you that missed the David Warr Demo,
Mark Twain Hobby Center recently organized a class/seminar with Horizon Hobby revolving around their Blade Chroma quadcopter. The first half of the class was held in the Mark Twain Hobby meeting room. A Horizon Hobby representative pilot, David Warr, was there going over the features of the quad before we proceed to our flying field to demonstrate it. For myself, and also the comments of those who attended, this is the most stable and easy to fly quad that I have seen. David let those attending the demo at the field fly the Chroma. Impressive!
Thanks to the Mark Twain Hobby Center
