May 26th, 2010 at 2:02pm
 
And we began..attached to this thread start is an excerpt from the Ancient Book of Flying. This magnificent tome was found, in pieces and disarray in the dusty depths of an excavation - looking for a lost "C" clip on my shop floor. ........only the one page is posted here, but it is a start....maps and arials and photos and stuff will be added in due course.
Of course, YOUR memories and photos are welcome as well. Feel free to post a new thread within this section and include your stuff....

According to early records, the first members of AS/RCM , those who survived the trek from Stanley via Beaverbank, were Donnie Blackburn, Jim Grandy, Bernie LeRoux, Claude MacLachlin, Jim Turner and Arrie Hackert.
There are rumours of dis-agreement (what, in AS/RCM?) and in -fighting..(literally fighting!!), so Mr. Hackert returned to HRCC and our very own sole dinosaur Al Eastman became the 6th of the Charter Members.
To the very best of our collective knowledge Mr. Eastman is the sole remaining Charter Member left alive....

if you're trying to post an image of our locations you can use google maps.  on the upper right there is a button to copy a link and embed it into the forum.

choose the "Paste link in email or IM"  option.  copy and paste into the message.


here's our current location.

Here is the land of Alfred of Neiforth....the first runway was in the upper right hand corner where the road swings to the right past MacPhee Pond, then makes a loop. This is also reputed to be the locale of the "Lady of the Runway", an ancient story of our past.

Towards  the left and down a bit below MacPhee Pond was the second runway, but it was too close to the Ducks Unlimited operation at the pond. This was way too much temptation for Claude MacLauchlin, and his planes returned with pellet holes at least once...

In the lower part of the picture, just in front of the 2 parrallel ditches and just before the small road crossing the ditch on the right off the road, was our final location..in fact, if this thing works right, you can increase the pic size and finally will see one runway perpendicular to the road still visible...Ahhhh, twas fun..
