Membership Meeting …. Sunday, January 11, 2015 at 2 PM on the PM side of the field.
Membership. Boni Pineups will be there to take your money and give you your cards. Flying at the field is for paid members only and limited guests. All flyers must have AMA or MAAC insurance. Bring your proof of insurance. All flyers must wear a current membership card on their person. You are issued two cards so you will still have one for the frequency board. The lock combinations will be changed this month and only current members will get the combination.
Airshow. Date of our Airshow is February 19,20,21, 2015.
There is an idea floating around. Airshow registration will begin at 8AM with open flying until 10AM. All flyers will be registered. At 10AM, the Airshow begins and continue to about 12:30 when all planes will be taken to the center of the runway for meet and greet the public. After the runway is clear, open flying will resume. The public Airshow portion will be scripted so all flyers will know when they fly, with whom, and what they will fly. An effort will be made to break down the acts in some categories, like, Sunday flyers, electrics, WWI and WWII, the thirties era, i.e.. round engines, 3D, quads, drones, gliders and the list could go on. If you have an act, come Sunday and lets’ discuss this concept.
Jobs to be filled to prepare for the Airshow. Be thinking of what you would like to do. Your participation is important to make this a success. It will take the Village to get the job done.

History of Our Club
Our club was started over 30 yrs ago and has had various flying sites over the years. We have had the current field since 1996 and have been working on improving it a little at a time. By far the biggest improvement was when we put in the paved runway. The club membership includes local flyers plus many winter visitors who enjoy the usually great year-round flying weather.
Our Club is now re-named to: Contreras Field, home of the Yuma Aeromodelers.
Our field has a paved runway approx 600 X 60. Shaded pits for morning and afternoon flying. Hyw 95 and Rifle Range Road. Located at N32d 42' 27.59" by W114d 25' 27.59"
