Due to the current health crisis, the board has decided that club meetings are too risky to the health of our club members. We will resume meetings when the crisis has been abated.

We have been involved in introducing modeling to children of all ages, sending children to camp, doing flying demos at local schools, churches, and parks.

LARKS Newsletter Updates
The LARKS Monthly Newsletter will not be updated until restrictions on travel and gatherings are lifted. As meetings are on hold for now, and Columbia has deemed it important for us to stay home (I'm sure the state will follow suit in short order), I will not be in a position to create videos or post photos from the field, nor will there be much if any news to report. I will post new event information as it becomes available.

 We have also set up simulators and static displays at various locations as an educational experience to our community. We are always open to new ideas to promote our hobby to others in a safe way.

Unfortunately our fun fly is another casualty of the Coronovirus pandemic.
Following guidance from the Federal and State experts, we have decided to postpone the event scheduled for April 18th. The risk to our members and event participants is too high at this time.

Walt found this article / simulation on the Washington Post that give the best description of how factors impact the spread.

These graphics show why it’s critical to stay home if you can — even if you’re young and healthy.

The early trickle of new coronavirus infections has turned into a steady current. By creating simple simulations, we can see how to slow it down.

We have tentatively rescheduled the event for October 17, 2020. Hopefully we will have licked this virus by then.

April 4th Float Fly (per Steve Livingston)
"I’m sorry to report but due to the Covid-19 virus we must cancel this float fly. We will reorganize another for later in the year. We may actually do a joint float fly with Larks at this location."

The new event has been approved and scheduled for 9/12/20:
Event name: The Steve Fogle Memorial Invitational
Approved dates: 9/12/2020 - 9/12/2020
Location: Carolina Fresh Farms
Category: Float Fly
Sanction Event Number: 9760
OK, so you're staying at home like the government wants. Can't or won't fly? Do this ASAP with your batteries. This is good advice!
