Took this a few days ago with my cell while waiting for the rain to quit. Forgot I took it till just a couple minutes ago.

North end of an empty field. It's generally just like this when I go flying minus the rainbow...something to be said about solitude and 3D.

If I would have had the angle it opens up to prairie and Mima Mounds. Nothing but open sky.

It's possible, however, there will still be voting at the meeting. I cant' see them taking time during the meeting to count votes. Maybe though.

Question: I just can’t afford 80-125$ a servo right now “Well I can but won’t” as I have to many hobby’s and planes to outfit right now so I am looking for a happy medium. I would like to not have to run a BEC or regulator if possible and just run a 2s lipo. So looking for anyone’s experiences with the HK offerings for servo. Most all my planes are 20-35cc so I want to just put the same in everything. Suggestions? Bec and other suggestions welcomed also.

The Polls will open Close soon. Here's how to vote.

The polls will open soon for the election of five members to the MAR/C Board of Directors. The 3 members that receive the most votes will serve 3 year terms. The member that receives the 4th most votes will serve a term of 2 years; the member that receives the 5th most votes will serve a term of 1 year. All terms begin on January 1, 2013.

You may cast your ballot online anytime between November 2nd and November 13th. Paper ballots will be available and accepted at the club general meeting on November 15th, or if received by mail before that meeting.

Go to the MAR/C website www.mar-c.org and click on the “Board Election 2012” Tab. To vote online, click on the “Vote Online” button. You will now have to log on using your user name (or email address) and password. (If you have forgotten how to do this, see below.)

You will now see the candidate statements and electronic ballot. Select up to 5 members and then click the “Vote” button to record your vote. You will see in yellow font “Your vote was recorded.” at the top of the page (you may need to scroll to the top to see this). If you selected more than 5 members, all vote boxes will be cleared and your vote will not be recorded; however, you will have another opportunity to vote.

Alternatively, you may cast your vote using a paper ballot. Click on the “Paper Ballot” button to print a paper ballot. The mailing address is shown on the ballot.

We will tally electronic votes, along with any paper ballots received by mail, or cast in person, at the general meeting the night of the November 15th. We will announce the election results at the end of that meeting.

Log On Procedure:
You can Log On using your email address (or user name) and password. If you don't have, or have forgotten, your password, you can set up a new one by clicking on the "Forgot Password?" button under the member login section of the Home page. You will receive an email message with a link to reset or create a new password.

I am one of a group of five members who are running to protect and promote the interests of those members.... So please log in and read the bios on:

Azhar Osmanbuoy
Stephen Lenz
Joel Ball
Lee Paddock
Joe Giamona

If one or more of us meet with your approval then we would appreciate that vote or votes.

Thanks for your consideration,

Yes they count the ballots handed out at the meeting. And tally the counted e-mail votes and announce the winners during the swap meet . So bring you good junk.
