Member Josh Yarbro wants to create a Multi GP Drone Racing Chapter for our club. He is currently working with the clubs from Abilene and Midland who are also forming a charter. Josh’s goal is to create a Tier 3 Chapter which requires 10 members and running 6 events in a 180 day period. To become a chapter member all that is required is an AMA membership. A charter member can also belong to multiple clubs which will help them reach their membership requirements. For more information regarding the Multi GP Drone Racing League, visit their website at https://www.multigp.com/ . If you are interested becoming a member of the Angelo RC Chapter contact Josh at 325-304-1882 . More Information about the Multi GP Drone Racing Charter click here!

Ever wonder who keeps our Port-O-Potty Clean? It's TOPS Septic Tank Service from San Angelo. They have been providing the serving free of charge, so if you ever need septic services or port-o-potty rentals, please visit their website at http://topsseptic.com/.
Sandbox Area Improvements!
We recently installed a cabinet in the sandbox area to keep our sandbox toys from blowing away and prevent sun damage. The cabinet has two latches to keep the doors closed and has been screwed to the bleachers behind it to prevent it from tipping over. Additionally, we placed carpet in the area between the sandbox and the cabinet. Thanks to Don and Connie Baker who donated the cabinet and the carpet! If anyone has any toys they would like to donate, please put them in the cabinet. Lastly, we tilled the sand and removed debris from the sandbox area.
