The future of the Fort Erie Field needs to be decided, I have discussed this with Wayne at some length today and we felt that we should post this on the Forum.

What needs to be decided is, if someone else is willing and able to step in and run the operation, or if it should be disbanded.

I have reached the point where I really don’t want to continue in my role at the club.  Wayne has told me he is in a similar position.  

To be clear (Glen, Wayne and Doug still want to be part of the club but we have some personal handicaps that are severely limiting our ability to keep the field ready for "battle")

We also have lost some participation to the other fields that are able to offer more facilities, this is understandable as they are being run by people who are more willing, and able, to spend more time and effort on them.

The challenge is that we don’t appear to have local, younger, enthusiastic people that can commit to consistently doing what is needed to keep things going.  

I also have in mind that if we cannot find a way to keep things running and were to shut the Fort Erie Field down, I would rather do it before people pay 2019 Black Creek dues.

 
For consideration; the role of operating the Fort Erie Field involves;

-          Schedule Planning including coordination with the other fields and posting notices on the forum

-          Weather, watching forecasts and deciding if the meet is a “go” or cancellation

-          Being the contact with the Black Creek people, dealing with inquiries, requests, problems and informing them of the meet schedule

-          Collecting dues and membership applications, making sure the Black Creek people get them and chasing people at meets to make sure they pay

-          Key and Trailer Crank, keep these safe and accessible, make sure they get to the meet, this means the person doing this must attend every meet, or make arrangements to have someone take them there

-          Field Maintenance, check the field and cut the grass routinely between meets to make sure the grass does not get too long

-          Field Preparation, field must get cut short enough and be clear of excessive clippings on the Thurs. or Fri. before the meet to make sure the surface is good for tank operations

I hope that you can get some "youth" to take over. I thank you guys for all your efforts, as if it was not for Ft. Erie, I would never have started into RC Tanks!

But I barely have enough time to attend the KW events (which are local), let alone the dedicated time to prep and maintain an entire field.

I know it takes a lot of work to keep the fields battle ready. I hope you find someone.
If not you are always welcome to the other fields.

Hay Glen , Sorry to hear that but it is a lot of work and you have to look out for your self.
If you do not find some people to help take on the field maintenance and its just the three local members there is not much that can be done. On the bright side it will leave you time to car pool out to the other two Tank fields, you are more than welcome to come out and play !!!
The KW field has a large  detailed town layout and a must see and play for Tankers! 
The Mississauga location  is shaping up with a LOT of landscaping going on , fun to drive on as well as free for all tankers to show up and play.!
