New WHAM T-Shirts!
The t-shirts are ready to order. If you would like one please visit teespring.com/wham.
We only have 20 days from today to order at least 30 shirts. So please don't wait and order now. I was able to negotiate with the company and have three colours available. Orange, Red and ash will be available and can be selected during the check out process.
If your wondering about sizing please visit this link. It will give you an indication on how to measure and order the best size. Remember, it's always better to go a little bigger than smaller.
Note: the entire purchase process will be through teespring.com and the shirts will be shipped directly to your door. If we meet our goal of 30 shirts we should receive the shirts last week of June...

Latest news on the field construction!
Rick, Jim, Dan, and I met at the field this morning, and following/during much discussion, staked out the pit area and potential flying stations, and flight line distances.
We also staked out the 600' x 34' runway location, which is on the west side of the field and running NW to SE basically paralleling the ditch that borders the west edge of the field.
Right after we finished, a farmer (Bob Zimmerman) stopped and talked to us. He told us that he used to go to our old field and watch us fly, and was quite eager to see us get going at our new field. We told him that we are putting in the artificial runway, and he immediately offered his box scraper and tractor to prepare the strip, and said to call him when we are ready to do it. He also stated that by Thursday or Friday of this week the ground should be dry enough to start.
So, Roland is working on getting the pad prepared for the container, and we will try and get that done this week first, and hopefully get the runway field prep done, too.
Anyway, it all looks good now, and the field is nearly completely dried out. The next few days should do it. Rick is doing a sketch of everything, and I will take that and do whatever else it might need if necessary, and mail it to MAAC as part of our registration.
We'll keep you posted as the week progresses.

The WHAM forum is now closed!
The website forum is now closed but will continue on as a Facebook Group Page. Visit https://www.facebook.com/groups/whamrc/ and don't forget to comment on the t-shirt concepts. I'm still looking for some feedback.

Changes to Website Coming!
At the end of this month I will be closing the WHAM forum. The security issues and excessive SPAM have become too time consuming to deal with. There is a new WHAM forum (Group) available on Facebook. The new forum will be at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/whamrc/
The one catch is you have to be a Facebook user to see and post in this group. I have also created a "secret" WHAM group only visible to current WHAM members. I would encourage all WHAM members (and executive, this means you Tom and Kevin.) to open a Facebook account if you don't already have one. It's painless and more secure then our current forum system.
The Facebook group will work the same as our forum. You can post pictures, videos and files. You can also place items for sale in the group if you wish.
I plan to close the WHAM forum on May 1, 2013.
If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact me.
