ATTENTION: UCR UAS PROJECT
TEAM WINS BIG
We have been supporting the UCR Engineering Students UAV
Project since last year, with training, supplies, use of our field,
and the services of Jim Bronowski as trainer and Safety Pilot. They
did pretty well for a first time in the AUVSI Competition in
Maryland last year. Now, in this year's contest, they finished in
the top 10 overall! They were third highest scorers amongst American
Universities, and high scorers of the California Universities that
actually flew! They have advanced an idea to have some fly-ins at
our field for the Southern California University teams next year, in
order to try to improve their performance in the final competition.

Notice to Club Members -
At the Club Meeting on April
19, 2014, it was decided to take some measures to increase
membership and stimulate public interest in RRCC and its
activities. A committee will be formed at the next meeting on
May 17th, 2014, to
consider various ideas for achieving these goals and to make
recommendations to the club membership. Those with ideas to
consider, or interested in joining the committee, should contact
Oscar Weingart at
Some ideas discussed at the meeting
Open House, or Air Show, with food service, at the field,
with trainers available to allow the public to fly a RC model.
Posters and flyers to be distributed to local hobby shops.
Establishing relationships with local schools.
Articles and event listings in local newspapers.
As of Today, about 1-1/2 years later, no suggestions have
been received, but it occured to your webmaster that our
the UCR UAS Team might get us some publicity. Also, AMA
has a program of cash awards to clubs that get publicity. It is
possible that we may be eligible for AMA Leader Club
status. - Oscar
