Simi Indoor Flyers Mourn a Founder's Passing

We lost one of our founding club officers recently. We mourn the loss of Martyn Cowley, a good friend, and co-worker to those of us who work at AeroVironment in Simi Valley. In the attached club photo of our first event, Martyn is the one circled in white.

Snakes On The Field!

TORRANCE, Calif. (KTLA) — Authorities in Torrance are trying to round up some snakes that were dumped onto a Little League field over the weekend. A few varieties of pythons and a yellow anaconda were among the snakes found at Entradero Park. Neal Marks, who maintains the fields, said he found two snakes that were seven feet long. Police believe that at least two are still on the loose. While none of the snakes are poisonous, they are still dangerous to small pets because they are constrictor snakes, Torrance police cautioned.

A New Flying Field?

Last Saturday morning, when I arrived at Entradero about 8:30, I discovered it already populated with baseball players. This was not a big surprise and I had decided that if flying wasn't going to be possible there, I would head over to the Cal State Dominguez Hills campus to check out a field recently mentioned by fellow club members. At the last club meeting, someone reported success flying off an open field on the southeast portion of the campus, so I decided to check it out. This turned out to be a most fruitful endeavor!
