Website Updates

We just finished making some needed changes to our website and wanted to let everyone know. MARCS now has dedicated Photos and Videos pages. This will also make the Club News section easier to find updates about the club. The menu bar on the site will look like this going forward.

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 mentorrc@gmail.com.

Let us know how we are doing and what you think of the updates.

A New Trainer Airplane for MARCS

Recently MARCS had someone donate a Great Planes/Tower Hobbies PT-40 to the club. We weren’t sure if it had ever been flown but we did know it was in storage for a while. Our club president Marc refurbished the engine and did a little body work. Today we got to fire it up for the first time.

This airplane will be used to train new pilots and will be available to fly with a buddy box during our annual memorial fun fly on June 2nd.

This event and the raffle is open to anyone interested in the radio control aircraft hobby. We will be posting more information about the event soon.
