Alaska Radio Control Society

Announcements

The next club meeting will be June 7th 2016, 7:30 p.m., at Bells Nursery.

UPDATE: The remaining AirHogs events have been cancelled. June 4th, 2016 there will still be a Memorial Fun Fly Picnic though! September 10th, 2016 there are no scheduled events so feel free to do your own thing!

JBER RC CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE! The military implemented a new regulation as of late December 2015 that closes JBER RC field when the base is at threat level FPCON B (which it is currently). The field is closed. Do not go out there for any reason until further notice. We will be able to fly on base again when the threat level is lowered or when they change that policy. In the meantime, do not go out there. Base Ops and base security has been alerted to not allow anybody to fly out there.

There is hope on the horizon. The club is in communication with the base officials and there may be a change in policy coming... Don't lose hope!
