Dues are the same as last year, $20.00 for the year.

IMHO, this is a bargain for what we have available, there.

I will bring the membership forms to the meet.

Please make cheques payable to: Black Creek Community Association

The following information needs to be filled in on the form;

Last Name: First Name:
Spouse Last Name: First Name:
Street Address: Town/City:
Postal Code: Email Address:
Telephone:

I am hoping the lol indicates the pennies are a jest, I can't turn $20.00 worth of them over to the Black Creek Community Association for a membership, we need to keep our hosts happy.

The weather report is good, the field is in good shape for April, better than last April, as I recall.

I will be there early to have the building open.

See everyone there.

I was not seeing the humour in a lot of things last night. I threw my back out yesterday afternoon (if it turned out like the last time, I would not be going to the meet, today Shocked ), but I did get the field cut in the evening.

For general interest, especially for the new guys, I should have explained how things work with the membership in my first post.

The Can Am RC Tank Club is hosted by the Black Creek Community Association at its facility, which is an old country school building and yard.

The membership fees do not go to the Can Am RC Tank Club, basically, to use the facility, we join the Black Creek Community Association, which is a volunteer run outfit.

There are no actual dues for the Can Am, neither the Can Am or any of its members receive any of the fees. I have volunteered to collect the dues and turn them over to the Black Creek Community Association.

For our $20.00 we get;

- A field they let us do quite a bit with (and they are expanding it for us)

- Use of the Hall, its washrooms, tables, full paved parking lot

- We run under their liability insurance (a necessary evil, these days)

It would not be me that would be counting them Wink , it would be the volunteer who looks after the membership for the Black Creek Community Association, I doubt that that would make them happy, and we want them to be happy we are there; we need them, more than they need us.

No, not really.

I remember when this stuff wasn't necessary but things have changed.

I have been on the board of our local sportsmans club for 20 years, and between that and work experience, I have learned about the need to have insurance in today's society.

Our society is such, now, that organizations, and those who are involved in operating them, are foolish to run without insurance.

Most people are good, and things usually go well, but it takes just one "I tripped over the stairs etc., or one of your toy tanks at your event, hurt my leg and now I can't work for a while, my lawyer will be in touch" to total alter your world.

A reminder to anyone out for the first time in 2013, we are collecting dues and having members fill out the Black Creek Community Association form; this year, they are issuing us membership cards.

Greg

Don't worry about it, the Can Am doesn't have dues, the $20.00 is strictly for the Black Creek Community Association, if a person is not able to come out, they are not using the facility, so IMHO, they don't need to pay (until such time as they do come out),

The $20.00 supports the Black Creek Community Association who, as we have seen, are doing some neat things for us, and we operate under their insurance, I think its a good deal.

We'll catch you when you are able to attend Very Happy

Yes, this is correct.

The dues actually go to the Black Creek Centre, we become members of that organization.

We get quite a bit for that;

- Use of a piece of land there that is exclusive for us
- Use of the building and its wash rooms and kitchen
- Use of a propane BBQ, we do supply our own propane
- Use of paved parking lot
- Place to park the trailer that stores the battlefield buildings, etc.
- Operate under their insurance (in these days, a necessity, I would not operate a club without it)


Anyone that has tried to set up and operate any type of club soon finds out the above requirements are not always easy to meet, especially at a low cost.

We do have to cut the grass on the field, some of us that live in the area have done this since 2011; although any new help in that regard would always be welcome.

Thank you, EXCELLENT news, and most welcome!

This would be a most appreciated addition to our "over the hill" work party. (it wasn't too bad before my knee went bad in 2014 Shocked ).

No problem , anything to help out , I'll probably go day before to cut grass so we're not driving thru clumps of grass from the morning dew , how short do you guys chopped it down ? I took drive to black creek in November just to check it out from the YouTube videos and it looked quite long

i would say it's about 1/2 to a inch long maybe a bit longer than that but the hills we leave longer so the tanks can use it as cover. The river bed always needs weeding

It was likely quite long.

I have been involved in field maintenance since 2011 and have more experience with it than I like  Laughing

The big thing is to try to cut it about every 10 days so it doesn't turn into a hay field.

Nice in theory but is doesn't work that way; the current 3 "local" guys are close to, or over retirement age.  

One lives far enough away that it is a 1 hour commitment just to get there and back home before he does anything.

Another should not be doing any cutting right now.

Then there's me, 10 minutes away but I have had knee problems since 2014, have my own 1+ acres to look after, am still working full time and field work competes with motorcycling.

In a heavy grass growing year, the difficulty is getting the clippings off, this means a bagger (which needs emptying, a lot) or raking and using a leaf blower.

I bring my vintage Lawnboy and cut it on the lowest setting, basically, the edges of the mower deck just about skid on the ground.

What I call a maintenance cut (done between meets) can be done any convenient, dry day. This can be done in about 1 hour.

A field prep cut (to get ready for a meet) takes more watching the weather.  It is best to cut for field prep 24 hours before the meet, or no more than 48 hours.  Meets are on a Saturday, this means we need both the promise of a dry Friday evening to do the cut and, of course, a dry Saturday after it, for the meet.  We have become fairly adept at reading the forecasts  Smile  Prep is more involved and takes about 2 hours.

That's the long story on it but it needs to be done if we are to have a good meet, so, there's mor to the hobby than research, electronics, painting, etc.   Wink
