Yearly AGM, April 29, 2017
As the old cliché goes, it seems like yesterday we were doing this very thing.
This is a notice to the CRAFS membership that we will hold our second Annual General Meeting on April 29, 2017 at the CRAFS Cranberry flying field at 1100. This will be held rain or shine but let's all hope for the shine part to happen. Our yearly dues will also be collected. Bring something to fly afterwards as well, weather permitting.
Once again we will be asking for nominations for the Executive positions. President, Vice President and Secretary/Treasurer positions are up. Nominations will close on April 27th. Please submit said nominations to myself, Frank or Peter Wood. Also if you have a subject or question you would like to discuss could you please let myself, Frank or Peter know so we can add it to the meeting Agenda.
During the meeting we will be calling for a volunteer work party sometime in June when the weather gets a little better to rebuild the sun shade lean-to that was destroyed this last winter by the snowfall that we had.
That's about all for now so happy flying in the season to come and see you all on April 29th at 1100.
CORRECTION RE - Transport Canada Regulations Limit Model Aviation Activitie
Transport Canada’s announcement of interim regulations for drone use will impact model aviation enthusiasts across the country that are flying any model aircraft between 250g and 35kg. The regulations place restrictions on how high model aircraft can be flown, and minimum distances from people and buildings when flying that will severely limit how and where people can enjoy the hobby. The announcement states that not only must recreational users put their contact information on drones, but also that they may not fly higher than 90 metres, WITHIN 75 METRES OF BUILDINGS, vehicles or people, or within 9 kilometres of the centre of any aerodrome.
