Tribute for John

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Seeing the bucket list file reminded me to relate a very nice gesture I was involved in at our zone fly in Sudbury last weekend.
We lost John Godard last December to a succession of medical problems which must have been very difficult for him.
He was one of those doers and contributors with the Cambrian Club and he also sat on MAAC committees for years.
Someone arranged to have one of John,s models brought to the field and after takeoff as many of us as wished to participate did one lap of the field in memory and as a tribute to John then handed the TX to the next one in line.Fifteen or twenty of us ran the tank near dry .
Perhaps this gesture for a lost member has been used elsewhere but it was new to us and I am sure will be repeated in years to come.
I am not sure who pulled this together but someone deserves credit for a very effective tribute.

Re: Tribute for John

Good idea. I just hope I never have cause to initiate it at my club.

Re: Tribute for John

Hi Kevin ; That was a great tribute by your club and thanks for mentioning it here.

My club (The Edenvale R/C aircraft Club Inc. ) lost three members last year.
