Latest Club News  

  • New The April meeting is now history.  There was a presentation by Demetri of the changes in the area that will impact the future of our flying site.  The field will have to be re-aligned to reflect these coming changes.  The executive will keep you posted as things develop.  The hydro went off half way through the meeting so we were forced to cut things short.  Watch for some emails in the coming weeks once a decision has been reached.
  • New Here is a video showing the demolition of the old shelter at the field and the installation of a brand new one. Produced by club member Tom Mills. Click here.
  • There are a few pictures from the Frozen Finger Fun Fly that Don Keeley took which I have posted on our site on the Photo Albums page.  Congratulations to those very brave souls who endured the coldest New Years Day that we have probably ever seen.
  • Minutes from the Annual General Meeting of 2017 can be found on the Members Only Area page by supplying the password.
  • For those of you not at the December meeting, we elected a new executive for the 2018 season.  There were a couple of changes for next year.  Check out the Executive page (pictures to follow) to find out who is in charge of each position.  There were about a dozen or so proxy votes in addition to the members' votes.  We did have enough members present to make up a quorum.
  • We have a new location for our upcoming general club meetings, the Armadale Community Centre, located at 2401 Denison Street, Markham.   It is just west of McCowan on the south side of Denison.  No indoor flying at this location.  See the About Us page for meeting dates and map.
  • Our summer Fun Fly was a great success according to what I have heard.  I was unable to attend.
  •  Our first Fun Fly of the season was held on Saturday, June 10th.  The weather was great, the food was great, and a good time was had by all.
  • For those of you interested in drones, I have updated the link to The 74 Best Drones Website in 2017 on our links page. You can also get to it from here.
  • Here is an interesting article about " How NOT to make friends at the flying field". It was sent to me by Andre Laurent.  It makes for a good read and should be followed by all of us.  Just click on the link.
  • An Interac Money Transfer form has been added to the Forms page so that now you can pay your club dues on line by transferring funds via email. Fill in the form on line and follow the directions on the form.
  • I have added a private section to the Membership> Members Information tab.  It contains the 2017 and 2018 membership lists and the club by-laws. It also includes a list of members who have not paid their MAAC fees yet. Click on the "Members Area Only" box and use the 2018 gate code as the password,  (make sure pop-ups are allowed for our site.)  This will bring up another page where you can view and/or download the lists.
  • In order to be kept up to date on anything of importance, your current email address has to be correct. If your email has changed recently, click on the Contact Us tab and send an email to the Membership Officer.  It can't get any easier.

Picture/Video of the Month

Here is a short video of Gernot Bruckmann of Austria at the International Indoor Tournament of Paris.  This guy is totally amazing on the sticks.  I don't see how anyone can do this sort of thing, but then I am a lot older and I can't sync my fingers and my brain as easily as these young guys.  Sent to me by Gerry Steckling.

Click here or on the picture to start the video  It will take about 10 seconds for the video to start.
