Club Roster Now on Website

As requested, the active club roster is now available on the website.  This data can only be accessed by those who have logged in to the website AND are active club members.  With this roster, you can look up club members, contact info, and review your club membership status.  To access the club roster please follow these steps:

  1. If you do not have an account with the website you can create one under the “Account Access” section on any page of the website.
  2. Log into the website using your account info. If you are logged in you will see “Howdy, [login name]” in the top right corner of your screen.
  3. Click on the “Club Roster” link on the top navigation bar
  4. If you do not see the “Club Roster” link, please email johnorama@gmail.com and request your website account be upgraded to a Member status.

We try to automatically upgrade our club members website status to the appropriate status, but many use different names with their accounts and we can not always match up web accounts with club member names without a little extra help.

Feel free to give us feedback on this new website capability.

Welcome Back, Hal!

Hal L. is a former member of HDRCC and renewed his membership with the club.  Continued support for all of our members is critical to keep this wonderful club flying.

Welcome, Greg Stevens!

Greg is our newest club member and is focused on multirotor aircraft.  He has been flying with the club for awhile now and has helped us out with our advertising.  Check out the video on our home page…that’s Greg’s work.  Thanks, Greg!

Non-Profit Announcement!

It’s official!

HDRCC has acquired 501(c)(3) non-profit status via fiscal sponsorship from The School Factory.  This won’t make our planes fly any better, but it will make it easier to acquire large donations and grants to support our ever-growing training and education efforts.
