Joe Newland has passed

I have some very sad news. Joe Newland, long time Northern California RC soaring pilot, passed away from a heart attack this week. I know many of you SVSS members were good friends of Joe and would want to know. He will be sorely missed.

I was asked to help spread the word that there will be a memorial fun fly at Kearney Park in Fresno this Saturday for Joe. 10:00 am start time. Please help spread the word to people who knew Joe but may not be checking RCG.

Any SVSS members who knew Joe may want to pass on their condolences in this SBSS forum thread. Cherie Newland just made a post there.

Thank you from Cherie Newland

On behalf of SVSS I just received a nice thank you from Cherie Newland (attached below) for the card that many of our club members signed before we sent it to her. From the card: "I don't think most of the guys know how much he enjoyed their company and their wins. Thank SVSS for the card. Sincerely, Cherie"
