The AMA Expo was a great success for the AMA as well as our club. Plenty of traffic arrived at our booth ranging from newcomers to experienced pilots that moved into the area. If you have never been to one of these shows, it is greatly recommended to make plans to attend the 2016 Expo. We should be getting a few visitors and prospective members, including youth, at our club in the next few months as result of our presence at the show. Our club is still growing with a total membership of over 80 members.
The 2015 Consolidated Event Calendar has just been published and there are plenty of events for everyone in our club as well as other clubs around the area to enjoy. Please support our events and try to make an effort to participate in other club events as well. There is no reason why we should not have a good relationship with other club members; in the end we all love the hobby and at the rate that some clubs are losing their fields, we may need each other to fight for new flying sites. There is a copy of the Consolidated Events Calendar attached to the side bar (click to open) and on the “Events” page. Stay tuned for more information.
Perfect weather, beautiful skies, mirror-like lake surface, great food and great comradery; this is the best way to describe this year MVF Annual Float Fly at Heritage Lake. Members of the Civil Air Patrol Squadron 59 from Hemet did a great job with the security detail, aircraft retrieval, set-up and tear-down; a very impressive group of well-mannered gentleman’s. We had a lot of action including a few dead in the water airplanes that were rescued via RC boat or by the Civil Air Patrol and a pedal paddle boat. The event CD, Ray Gould, did a great job with the pilots meeting, airplanes inspection, and his signature pull pork sandwiches. The raffle went well and the two most famous items were the Parkzone micro Icon A5 donated by Bob from Dynamics Hobbies and the ElectriFly Catalina PBY5. We also had other prizes donated by Hobby People. Galvin Logan delighted the public with his electric 3D Helicopter flying demonstration and capturing the action with his camera equipped multi-rotor and land RC vehicles. Many thanks to all the people that volunteered to make this event possible and a very special thanks to the Heritage Lake Community HOA and Management for letting us use this wonderful venue.

It is official; we cleared all the hurdles to have our annual Heritage Lake Float Fly Event on October 25th from 8:00 AM to noon time. The Heritage Lake HOA gave us the go ahead and the AMA approved the event sanction. This event was originally scheduled for October 11 but, due to some last minute inconveniences it was changed to October 25th. Spread the word around especially to other club members and let's have a great event. See the attached PDF flyer.
NOTE: Up-to-date AMA membership card is required and all models must have the owner AMA number and/or owner name and contact information. This is a requirement for AMA sanctioned events.Read More
The Poker Fly event was a great success.The scorching three digit temperatures were not enough to discourage the brave ones that came to try their luck at our now famous event. We had a total of 23 courageous pilots and plenty of spectators to cheer on the pilot's skills. An abundant amount of food and cold drinks were served as well as many laughs shared among the people. Furthermore, a bittersweet moment arose in account of the club expressing their thanks and farewells to a favorite club member, Stephen Ferguson. The club presented a plaque in honor of his commitment to the club and service to our country. A scrapbook was also presented by Amelia Arroyo with many fun pictures and good wishes from club members. Kudos to Joe Schwaller and many other members, including our youth, for taking part in making this a successful event.
