Eating and Gabbing
Help Wanted

From Pete Waters via email

     We need help to fill the empty seats on Wednesday mornings at The Conners Coney Island Restaurant situated at the N.E. Corner of 5 Mile and Haggerty.

     We meet at 7:30 a.m., and cover many topics, except Politics and Religion.

     This get together, used to have several tables filled, but time has passed, and now we're down to just a few. This is an ideal stop off for the field workers, breakfast and then the field. Please make an effort, we used to be "The R.O.M.E.O." Group, "Retired Old Men Eating Out!"

About the Midwest R/C Society

     The Midwest R/C Society (MRCS) is an educational and social organization of about 60 members living in the tri-country area near Detroit, MI. The members share a common interest in aviation and model aviation in particular. Our interests include all forms of radio control and control line models including sport, giant scale, powered & non-powered sailplanes, helicopters, precision aerobatic, racing, ducted fan, 1/2 A, Old-Timer, IMAA-type aircraft, electric powered planes, and just about anything that flies and relates to aviation.

     All Midwest R/C Society members are also members of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA). To learn more about the AMA, visit the AMA Web site.

     During the 'flying season', the club meets once a month for an evening of flying at the 7 Mile Rd. flying field. During the 'building season', the club meets the first Wednesday of each month at the EAA building - Mettetal Airport, Joy and N. Lilley Rd, Plymouth, MI.

     For more information about the club, or its activities, contact one of the club officers.
