  MMAC Pres. Newsletter Message,  
November 2017

Greetings to one and all.
         Well. I always thought that someday I would get roped into being the president of this club, but I never would have guessed that it would happen this soon.  As always, I will keep inviting all club members, and any other interested parties to come forward and express any helpful hints, criticisms, and appropriate dope slaps to me whenever needed.  I have been counseled to delegate responsibility as much as possible, so please raise your hands when I get over my head or ask for volunteers to help.
         I am looking forward to our resumption of indoor flying at the Milford Youth Center.  Many thanks to Scotty A for continuing his efforts in doing the ground work.  I intend to provide the same level of instructing the youth group as was done last year. 
Keep safe and keep having fun.
Respectfully, John Holcomb, President MMAC.

Secretary Report MMAC meeting of October 2017

Old Business
Charles River wants to replace picnic table at Bill Martin (no action yet).
We haven't heard back from CRRC about a joint effort to replace the damaged picnic table as of the June meeting.
Milford day - The weather was less than co-operative for the 2 nd year in a row. Between the rain showers (and sometimes during them) we all had fun, although the crowd was pretty small. Better luck next year.
Elections - Both Mickey and myself will be stepping down at the end of the year. Ken Bancewicz has thoughtfully volunteered to take on the secretarial position but we still need a president. Anyone can run, although Mickey has left some big shoes to fill.
Float fly held in NH by the Flying Eagles R/C club. The 3 day event was held on August 15 - 17 th . I guess it's technically not new business since its already happened. John H. attended and won yet another airplane. John gave a brief presentation at the September meeting.
Don Schipani has turned over Facebook control to Jaime McDonough. You can coordinate posting to our Facebook page through Jamie.
Winter indoor flying. As they say on "Game of Thrones", "Winter is Coming". Hopefully without an army of the undead, but only the usual New England snow, sleet, cold etc. Scotty was authorized to get our previous time slot reserved. 

New Business        

The winter banquet will be informal this year due to lack of participation last year. Most likely we will reserve a table at a restaurant (Need to agree on a date and place).
Election of a new slate of officers at the November meeting ( With or without Russian meddling).
Winter indoor flying. Update from Scotty.
I wanted to share some data that I've gleaned from the enrollment rolls over the mast few years. Not a pretty picture, but I suppose it could be worse.
