Christmas is almost upon us as the end of another spectacular year is coming to a close. Many astonishing memories and events have transpired leading up to this finality. Typically this time of year is bustling with traffic as everyone ventures out to purchase that little something for someone special. The restaurants are packed and parking lots filled to the max. This is a good indication that our economy isn't doing that bad at all. It is amazing how many large ticket items are being purchased like there is no tomorrow. Stores such as Walmart, Kmart, and Best Buy have people lined up around the block for all those Christmas holiday specials. It only comes once a year, so get out and take part in this joyous time of year. Tell someone you love them and take them to dinner. Spend an evening driving around the neighborhood to view some of the spectacular decorations. Sharing pleasantries can be heart felt and contagious.

New Cameras: We finally have a new camera on our website. As many of you know we took a lightning surge at our clubhouse which took out everything. The new camera is just the latest item to be replaced. Its amazing how many people I heard from that use the camera to give a check of the field for wind conditions, how busy it might be and weather conditions. If you are not familiar with this camera, its located on the home page of www.rcacf.com just click on the picture on the right side. Club Family Picnic: Was held on Saturday, November 19th. We had 143 members and family attend. The Caterer was about a half hour late in getting the food to us but, when it arrived everyone made a bee-line to the Club House. Bo Swope, Charlie Sutyak, Al Yager, Jerry Okeefe, Hank & Betty Field all pitched in getting the food ready and serving it to the hungry members and family. Our half time entertainment was provided by many of our members and Greg Foushi, Bill Freeland and Al Ward flying their jets and T-28 airplanes. Thanks, guys, you did a great job! We also want to thank the weather man who provided us with a great day for a picnic. 80 degrees and sunny!

We had great time and hope we can do it again next year. I want to thank all the special members that donated their time to make this Family Picnic a success. Also, want to thank the members of Cub Scout Pack 217 and their parents for joining us. Fly Safe, Thank you, John Floushi RCACF President We want to thank all the members and wives that brought the cakes, cookies, candy, etc. Many of us loved the Coconut Cake made by Humberto Pomaless wife Madeline and the Apple Cake made by Ken Felands wife Marjorie. Many members wanted the recipes and here is one. Apple Cake - (Marjorie Feland) 2 cup sugar 1-1/2 cup cooking oil (vegetable or canola) & (yes, 1-1/2 cups) 2 teaspoon vanilla 2 eggs, well beaten juice of 1 lemon 1 teaspoon salt 3 cups all purpose flour 1-1/4 teaspoon soda 3 cups peeled chopped tart apples (Granny Smith- 3 of them) 1-1/2 2 cups chopped pecans Combine sugar, oil, vanilla, eggs, lemon juice & salt. Beat well. Mix flour & soda, add to first mixture and beat well again. Add apples, and pecans, mix well. The batter at this point will be very thick; you may need to mix by hand. Spoon batter into greased & floured ( I use Bakers Joy spray) 10 tube pan. Bake at 325 for 11/2 hrs. (90 minutes) or until done. After cake has baked, and after making the Topping, pour over the hot cake in pan. I usually start making the topping with 10 minutes left on the timer until cake will be done. Let cake cool for 45 min to an hour and then turn it over onto a cake plate. The pan should be easy to remove from the cake, but if you have a problem, let it sit a little longer upside down. Topping

1 cup brown sugar cup milk 1 stick margarine or butter Combine all ingredients, bring to boil & cook 2-1/2 minutes. Pour over hot cake in pan. Let cake set in pan until cool.

Barry Vaught 407-256-2240 [email protected] Monthly Monthly Airplane Airplane Raffle Raffle At last months general club meeting Steve Mortenson was the luck winner of the plane raffle. It was the E-flite UMX P-47 with AS3X stabilization. Its a warbird model designed to satisfy fighter fans who want a

scale ultra micro with gusto. The advanced AS3X stabilization system built into the Spektrum 6-channel ultra micro receiver is what helps give this craft an incredibly solid look and feel in the air. Michael Michael Vivona Vivona Webmaster/Chief Webmaster/Chief Editor Editor Year In Review November is over and we enter into the last month of 2016. It has been quite a year to reminisce. Lets take a look back and evaluate some of the points of interest. The Cavaliers won the NBA championship. They took the win during the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors 4 games to 3. Joaqun Guzmn, (also known as El Chapo widely regarded as the world's most powerful drug trafficker, is recaptured following his escape from a maximum security prison. A crazy little mosquitos came into our lives carrying the dreaded Zika virus. Over in Brittan, the people vote to exit the European Union. The 2016 Summer Olympics are held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We lost some very unforgettable personalities this year. On that list includes Fidel Castro. He was a political revolutionary who governed the Republic of Cuba for 47 years as Prime Minister from 1959 to 1976 then as President till 2006. Some say he was a brutal dictator, others say he was defender of the people. On the other end of the spectrum is the great Arnold Palmer. He won numerous events on both the PGA Tour and the circuit now known as PGA Tour Champions, nicknamed The King. Patty Duke dies at the age of 70. If that doesnt make you feel old, nothing will. The singer songwriter Prince dies of who knows what. The worldwide figure Cassius Clay, or better know by his Muslim name Muhamad Ali passed away. He was widely regarded as one of the most significant and celebrated sports

figures of the 20th century. I know Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones looks like he is dead, but somehow he is still playing the guitar. I think all the alcohol has preserved his organs. And finally Gene Wilder, the remarkably funny man who wrote, starred in and directed so many comedy films left us. And last, the American people elect a new President. Mr Donald J Trump. Im sure many people will be watching closely to see if he keeps even some of his promises or follows in the footsteps of many before him and changes his tune once he takes over the Presidency. Time will only tell. Next general club meeting December 10th 10AM A great big THANK YOU to everyone who supports our great club. We could not do it without your continued help. Have a wonderful day Come Fly With Us R R C C A A C C F F
