Wednesday I harrowed and smoothed airfield and the RC car track until it was smooth. Then I the sowed the ryegrass seed and fertilizer on the airfield and around the perimeter of the car track. After that I lightly covered the seed with the harrow and everything looked GREAT at 5:00 pm when I finished.
Then last night, actually about 2:30 am Thursday morning, we got about 3/4 inch of rain and the field and car track looked like a swamp this morning when I checked it.

Fortunately, it doesn't look like there was much erosion, so we may be able to replant the sections that don't come up within the next 10 days and still have a nice flying field for the spring.

We will have to gather a few volunteers (maybe next Sunday after the meeting) to pick up the loose roots and miscellaneous debris that was in some of the fill dirt, but that shouldn't take more than 1/2 hour if we have at least 10 volunteers.

Thank you all for your patience and cooperation as we get Miller Field ready for action.

On friday 1-20-06, Chris, Mario and the dirt guy had a meeting at the field. The runway is looking real good... As soon as the rain slows up a little he will be back to put more dirt on the north end in the low spots. Also he is going to bring about 8 loads of clay for the racetrack. Right now there is no equipment out there, so anybody can try to fly (at your own risk) Of course if anything shows up out there, we will need to suspend flying until we get the all clear.

A sign has been put up stating that the airfield is closed; no flying allowed. I put the sign up yesterday on the fence beside the impound shed. All the dirt has been spread, but there will be more brought in and spread as soon as the field dries out again; probably sometime this week. As soon as the dirt is all spread, the field will be smoothed and fertilizer and ryegrass will be planted.

I will keep you posted on the progress. Also, a new 4' x 8' sign has been acquired and I and Jim F. plan to have it erected this week, along with new "Yield for Flying Aircraft" signs which will be placed on each side of the entrance by the south end of the runway (one as you enter the parking area and one as you leave).

RC planes can get expensive, even the more budget ones. That's why I thought I would show off a $13 airplane for a laugh. I would not think a $13 plane would fly worth a darn, after all, it was the cheapest component of this particular setup, particularly with a $20 brushless motor. After all, you could buy 3 planes for the cost of the servos alone! The amazing part: It flys surprisingly good! Click on the title for more info. Click here for some more pictures

Since our field is down, I thought I'd post some dates for some other local flying events. Click the title for the list.
