Hi All –

Although October was a generally uneventful month for CRCM, the club meeting was busy.

Al Brose reported on the Annual Golf Outing, stating that those who participated all seemed to have a good time.

Dan Knippen reported that CRCM defeated the Fox Valley club to retain the prestigious Chicagoland Cup trophy. Congratulations to all the pilots who flew for CRCM. Thank you Al and Dan for all your efforts in putting these events together.

Ray Donati, substituting for CD Terry D’Anca, reported on the Fun Fly season that ended Sept.13. The membership was reminded that the auction would be held immediately following the meeting. Ray also doubled as auctioneefor the evening

Finally, Brian Nowak gave an excellent presentation on the tentative agreement we have with the helicopter pilots regarding the flying areas. Thank you Ray and Brian.

George Schubkegel announced that the CRCM Swap/Auction is to be held on Nov. 7 at 9.00 AM. Running the event this year again are George and Joe Schubkegel, and Steve Fortman.

Bob Roggeveen set the date for the annual CRCM Banquet on Saturday, December 5 at 6.30 PM, again to be held at the Max McGraw Wildlife Foundation. Last year was the first time our banquet was held at this facility, and those who attended were thoroughly impressed with the facility, food, and amenities. We look forward to another good time at the banquet this year.

Thanks to George, Joe, Steve and Bob for heading up these events.

Until next month ­
