Happy T-Shirt News

Keeping with our regular schedule of one post a year (that will be changing in 2022!) we want to share a couple updates and a big announcement.

Quick news for everyone, Jason has finally decided to do some of his VP/Social Media work and has made some updates to graphics both on the website and the Facebook page. Now the online logo looks just like our new sign (yes, the sign that isn’t up yet . . . we know). Club docs have been updated and meeting minutes are now current. And . . . a bunch of new links have been added to the Videos page.

Ok, BIG news time!!!

The new MARCS Merch online store

We now have a merchandise site! Yes, now you can order t-shirts and stickers whenever you want online. To purchase any of the available items you can go to MARCS Merch, more items will be added soon. The store is through Spring (formerly Tee Spring), a well-respected on demand merch vendor at no cost to the club.

More changes coming this week include updates to the event calendar and for members . . . those long awaited meeting minutes from the past few months!

Also . . . if you have any MARCS related photos that you would like to share and have added to our site please email them to

A Cessna Classic

MARCS had the honor of hosting the maiden flight of Tom Miller’s Cessna. His son and current MARCS member Robert Miller provided the following story about the airplane.

Dr. Tom began building his Top Flite Cessna 182 just before and after his wife Ruth passed away. He is 87 years old and it was compiled after 2 1/2 years. He built his first balsa plane 80 years ago at age 7 and won his first balsa rubber band indoor free flight competition at age 11.

The Cessna was brought to the MARCS field to have the president of the club Marc Stermer trim it out and test fly it. Marc loved it.

Other info about the airplane
