Sam Wright Memorial Warbirds & Classics Scale Fly-in

Sam wrightAs many of you are probably aware by now, the rc community lost one of its greats, Sam Wright on 4.1.22. He was best known in the rc community as the golden voiced announcer of all the top RC events throughout the country, but he was also a key member of the PVMAC for a number of years. Over the years, Sam helped organize, CD and narrate some of the most memorable flying events at the PVMAC, was a board member and was also the Editor in Chief for for our now defunct Flightline Newsletter. 

To honor Sam in the best possible way, The Scale Squadron, whom Sam was the Commander of,  has decided to rename their annual Warbirds & Classics event this year to the Sam Wright Memorial Warbirds & Classics Scale Fly-in. The event takes place June 3-5 at the OCMA Irvine field and Registration is now open.   You can View the Flyer Here  and you can view more information, and register for the event here.

PVMAC Shirts now available

2022 Shirt1Its been a long time in the making, but I'm excited to announce....That you can now order PVMAC shirts. We have made these available online through Teespring on our own PVMAC online store at https://pvmac.creator-spring.com
Teespring prints your shirt order on demand, and ships them to your door. After reviewing the samples today, we are very pleased with the quality and outcome.
Each shirt features a small PVMAC logo on the front left, and an epic P-40B low pass at our Prado airfield with the large PVMAC logo on the back.
There several options to choose from and a number of colors options.

 

  • The Classic Tee is only $18 + tax & shipping and available in several dark and light colors of your choice. These are 100% Cotton and a classic standard fit.
  • The Classic Long Sleeve is $22 + tax & shipping and also available in several dark and light colors. This is also 100% cotton and a classic standard fit.
  • The Premium Tee is $23 + tax & shipping and features more color options than the classic tees. These are 90% cotton and 10% polyester, a slightly softer, premium feel and a slimmer fit.

(2XL + sizes are an additional $2 charge, however its only reflected in the total at checkout. I have a ticket with teespring to see why its not reflected in the cart price.)
Please check sizing charts before ordering.
Teespring accepts credit card, Paypal and Apple Pay.
Keep in mind they print these shirts on demand on a 3 day cycle, which starts after the 1st shirt is ordered and standard shipping is not the quickest. It took me a total of 15 days to get the samples, so please do not expect Amazon quick shipping, unless you pay for expedited shipping.

PVMAC Facebook Group

Facebook Med

Did you know the PVMAC has had a Facebook group  since 2009?  We encourage you to join the group, share what your working on in the hanger, what your flying at the field, and anything else that is related to our hobby.  Its just another way to bring our members together when we're away from the field, to be more involved and more informed on what is going on with our club. Its not just about the Club sharing news or info about the, its about you sharing new ideas, new projects, getting advice or sharing a great photo of your favorite plane.   The group was Just taken from a private group to a public group, so you no longer need to be a member of the group to see the posts. But if you want to share and comment, you will need to click the join button on the page.. It may take a day for you to be added, but I have been checking it more often lately.  We hope to see you there....
