CCRC Xmas Party! RSVP Req’d!

Nan sez:

The annual CCRC Christmas Party will be held on Dec. 5. It will once again be at the Hillsville Community Center, 9078 Hillsville Rd, Trinity, NC—beside the Dollar General. This is the same location we have used for several years. The time is 6:00 pm until 10:00 pm. Dinner will be catered by BBQ Joe’s for $15/person.
You MUST make reservations by Nov. 25th if you want dinner. You may reply to me at or 336-847-2828 and leave a message. Payment can be made at the door, but we do expect those that reserve dinners to attend and pay for their meals. All club members and their guests are welcome.
You may “B.Y.O.B.”, but we ask you to be discrete with its visibility. Mixers (sodas) will be provided.

We will have door prizes and raffles as well as a silent auction. Anything aviation related can be donated to the club for auction (new or gently used) or you may bring food items.

This is also a good time to pay your dues for 2016. They are “past due” on Jan. 1, 2016. Dues are $105 for Open members, $24 for Junior/Student members and $135 for a family membership ( May include spouse and/or Junior and/or Student members living in same household). You must hold a current AMA membership to fly at CCRC and after the Feb. meeting, those who have not paid their club dues will not have flying or voting privileges until their dues are current.

This is also a reminder that we are changing locks on the gate. Once you have paid your 2016 dues, you will receive a new key. Both the old and new locks will be on the gate until the Feb. meeting. At that time, the old lock will be removed. We would appreciate it if you would return your old key for possible future use.

Please let me know if you have any questions and don’t forget to let me know if you’re having dinner with us at the Christmas Party. I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of members at this event.

Club Float Fly Rescheduled! Oct 31

Let’s hope for good weather!

All CCRC members:

The sanction is back and we are set to go. I have rescheduled the float fly to Saturday October 31, from 9 AM to 2 PM.    The event is free and open to all CCRC members. There will be water and soft drinks available.  There are outlets at the shelter to recharge batteries.  This event is open to all power systems, gas, glow and electric.   The recovery boat will be on hand in case there are any mishaps.  Let’s hope the weather co-operates this time.

I will not be providing any lunch or pilots prizes.  It will be just like a regular day at the field. We do have a Subway near-by and I’ll be glad to do a group order for anyone who is interested.  Otherwise you are on your own for lunch.

The address to use for your GPS is 2190 Lynwood Dr. Greensboro, NC 27406.  If you have questions please email Tom at or call my cell 336-543-5764.

Directions from the High Point Area: Take I-85 north toward Greensboro.  Take exit 126 and keep right onto 421 South toward Sanford.  Take the first left after you get on 421 south.  This will be Harmont Rd.  Harmont will dead end into Liberty Road.  Turn left onto Liberty Rd. and take the second right onto Lynwood Drive. Follow Lynwood Drive around the lake and the event site will be on your left near the dam.
