COME JOIN US!... For a relaxing day of sport flying.

If you don't know how to fly, let us know, we will teach you!

Chuck, our Safety Coordinator, suggests everyone put a

"First Aid Kit"

in their vehicle.

First Aid Kits are like guns and Parachutes in that if you ever really need one and you don't have it you might not ever need it again. Put a First Aid Kit in your truck today.

Twenty Five Years Service by Our President

Bob Satow


Today was a very special day for our club president, Bob Satow, and for the club in general.  At the end of the club meeting, the club presented Bob with a plaque which included two pictures.  The top picture was a paver that was purchased by the club to be included in the construction of the Legacy Walk located at the Triple Tree Aerodrome facility in Woodruff, SC.  It is the venue for the R/C event called the Joe Nall.  The second is the picture of the Legacy Walk where Bob's paver is included.

Bob was also presented with another paver to be included at the AMA headquarters facility in Muncie, IN.  This presentation was given by our AMA District IV Vice President - Jay Marsh.  It will be a part of the Walk of Fame.  Both presentations were for the support and dedication Bob has given to our club for the past 25 years.  Please see the pictures of the paver that was presented to Bob by our club (pictures attached.)

If anyone took pictures at the meeting today, please send a couple of the best pictures to Jay Marsh.  He has mentioned that he would like to include a couple of pictures in the AMA Model Aviation magazine.

Thanks to all who helped make the flying field look spectacular today.  It was a team effort.

The next time you see Bob, please congratulate him.

"Watch Your Prop"

Safety Buzz from Satow Field August 2020 

Rather, as we are keeping a good record of no accidents and apparently the China disease has not been passed along thanks to our careful attendance and spacing, this is “not a safety buzz.”
Sometime last year I was privy to some rich comment between Bob S. and Steve G.  We were at the picnic tables and Steve was making some repair to Bob’s plane.  The usual banter ensued and as Steve was meticulously fretting over some minor spit and bailing wire repair to hold something like the muffler in place it became sort of quiet.  As Bob watched Steve careful work proceed, I could see the thoughts forming in Bob’s mind.  In just a moment, he said to Steve “you’re some sort of perfectionist aren’t you?”
I believe we can all easily appreciate Steve’s response, we all know Steve and we know how much Bob respects Steve’s work.  I’ve tried to adopt (steal) Steve’s response for myself as I find it as eloquent as anything I’ve ever heard. (Though I don’t find myself in a position to use it very often.)  He simply replied…

“There’s only one way.”


Watch Your Prop!
