Forest Preserves of Cook County: Parking

By order of the Forest Preserves of Cook County, we are no longer allowed to park along the path from the parking lot to the center line. As stated numerous times in the past, we are also not to park at the center line.  The center line pad and stalls are designated for loading and unloading.  NO PARKING! Violators will be ticketed and towed at the owners expense. Forest Preserve Police will now be frequenting the flying site looking for violators. There is no lifting of this parking mandate for the foreseeable future.

As we have stated on several occasions, parking along the path was granted by the FPCC as a privilege, as long as the lot was full.  We have now lost this privilege.  It’s unfortunate that we have now lost this valuable parking area. We have a unique privilege to fly at Checkerboard Field / Miller Meadows, but remember, it is not our property.

Please pass this information along to fellow flyers and assist in the enforcement of the rules while at the field.

Thank you

Checkerboard RC Club March 15th Meeting / Auction

The March 15th club meeting, we will be holding our club auction. We are looking to our members to bring in and donate all related items to our hobby. We all have items such as kits, built planes, motors, radio equipment, building supplies, etc. that we no longer need and want to find a good home for. What a great way to give those items a purpose again.
The auction is a fun event where you can bid on some old and new unique items. What’s the old saying?, “One mans trash is another mans treasure”.
All proceeds raised will benefit our club.
By popular demand, John Eggum will return as our auctioneer.
Remember to bring cash!! No checks or money orders.

Meeting / Auction starts at 7:00 pm

See you all there!
