TEMAC Winter Pilot's Meeting Schedule - input requested
« on: October 01, 2018, 10:07:26 am »
Hopefully you all know that during the cold, dark winter months, we all get together once a month for a Pilot's meeting.

(We actually hold meetings twice a month - one is the Pilot's meeting, the other is a build clinic.)

The meetings are held on a Wednesday evening from 7pm, at Colonel Mustard's pub on Hwy 7 in Markham.  We always meet in the bar first, from around 5pm, for dinner and drinks, and then head downstairs to a private room for the meeting.  We usually finish between 9pm and 9:30pm.

All members are welcome - you can also bring friends or partners (if you are feeling very daring!)  It's really an excuse to be sociable, and get out of the house to talk all things RC or aircraft related, but we do try to arrange a talk or show every month.  Some of the topics are RC related (power systems, FPV, 3D printing, paint mixing) and some are not (Apollo missions to the moon!)  And every month we do "Show 'n' Tell" where we ask you to bring in your current projects to show and inspire others.  Plus, there is a lot of sarcasm and humour!  ;D

I have an ask:

If there is a topic that you would like to have more information about, or have someone do a talk on (60-90 minutes) please add your suggestions below here or send me or @battlestu a private message.

Or, if there is something that you would like to do a talk on, and think the membership would be interested to hear about, you can either leave a comment here, or send me or Greg a message.

Thanks in advance,

Just a reminder we are always looking for new ideas for our pilot's meeting. So if you have a topic you wish to present or if there is something you would like to learn about don't hesitate to contact me or Simon.

Hey @battlestu ,

I have always been intrigued by the eclectic bunch that comprise TEMAC.  I think it would be great to hear first hand, gratuitously embellished by members of the audience, how folks got started in the hobby and how they continue to get away with it!! :D

Remember the Naked City TV series, and its iconic tag line "There are eight million stories in the naked city.  This has been one of them."?  I'm sure we've got at least that many stories!!
