Indoor Flying in Oshkosh Starts November 11, 2012

Hi All,

We have just received word that we have the go-ahead for indoor flying at Carl Traeger Middle School starting November 11, 2012. Flying hours will be 10 AM through 4 PM. Once again, pilots will be asked for a $5 donation to cover the cost of renting the gym. Fly electric RC, electric helis, and rubber powered or non-powered free flight all winter long!

At this point in time, the only item we know for sure is the schedule of flying dates, which you can see on our web site at:

A poster is attached here in Word format. The schedule will also be posted at Hobbytown USA in Oshkosh.

Carl Traeger Middle School has a new principal and a new custodial supervisor. Our club still needs to meet with them in order to iron out any other details, e.g. where we can set up (pit room), and whether we can have the curtain opened to produce one large gym, instead of two smaller gyms.

Some of you might recall that we ran into a few minor bumps in the road last year, using the room directly across from the gym as our pit room. We might not get to use that room again this year, and might instead have to use the cafeteria down the hallway as a pit area. There are fewer electrical outlets in the cafeteria than in the classroom we were using. So be prepared. You might need to charge batteries in a different manner. As soon as I know, I'll let you know.

In any event, we start November 11th, and except for a short break over the holidays, we fly through March 31st.

See you there!

Indoor flying cancelled march 3, 2013

I've just updated the poster attachment above to reflect that indoor flying at Carl Traeger Middle School will be cancelled Sunday March 3, 2013.

There are a couple of major conflicts that day, the VAM swap meet, and EAA's Family Flight Fest.

Hello VAM Members:

We have worked out all the details for indoor flying at Carl Traeger School for 2012-2013. Flying starts Sunday November 11th, and runs every Sunday through March 2013, with a few exceptions. See the indoor flying schedule on our web site for exact dates.

Good news. We will be able to continue to use the computer room as a pit room. (Remember not to unplug any computer -- or anything else for that matter...)

More good news. The school has also agreed to the extent that it is possible, to open the separation wall between the two gyms, making one large flying area. With the curtain open, the free flight guys will move to the bleacher wall side; the fixed wing RC guys will take the long west side gym wall and the heli guys will operate where they used to operate.

With the curtain wall open, everyone should have a lot more room to fly.

See you there. Lets all have a great indoor flying season!
