Time to Get Busy! Time to Volunteer!

We had a great turn out at the Member’s Meeting last night, which included a few new faces.  Look out for Caleb and Rager at the flying field and help them along as the begin their RC flying journey.

We have a lot of events and work ahead of us to include acquiring non-profit status, participating in the Reno Mini Maker Faire, Fernley 4th Celebration and the newly scheduled “Drone Wars” event which will be held on July 12th.  To make all of this possible and get the most out of each event, we need volunteers.  Here is a short list of tasks we could use help on from you or maybe you have connections that would like to lend a hand:

  1. Completing paperwork to incorporate as a non-profit entity in Nevada (anyone have a lawyer friend willing to advise/guide us?)
  2. Setup at the Maker Faire on June 7th, in Reno
  3. Bring in your aircraft and related items that you built (in part or full) for display at the Maker Faire
  4. Man the booth for a few hours at the Maker Faire on June 7th
  5. Setup at the Fernley 4th of July Celebration
  6. Bring in any aircraft you have for display at the Fernley 4th Celebration
  7. Man the booth for a few hours at the Fernley 4th Celebration

This is a team effort and every little bit of effort helps.  Please email johnorama@gmail.com for more information.

Reno Mini Maker Faire

The application for HDRCC to setup a booth at the Reno Mini Maker Faire has been submitted.  This is a great opportunity to attract new members, interact with the community and see what other cool things people are making.

We have a few people who have stepped forward to volunteer with helping out with setup, manning the booth and tear-down.  If you would like to help with this noble mission, please contact the Secretary, John.

We’re moving up on Google searches!

We’ve been watching our standings on Google, specifically the search phrase “Nevada RC Club”.  Before last week, our web site was being listed around page 4 or 5 of the search results, which means there are 40 to 50 other pages that are listed before us.  As of today, we are coming in on the first page at #5.  This means it is now easier to find us on Google and other search engines.

You can help to help us achieve the #1 spot by following these simple steps:

  1. go to www.google.com
  2. search for “Nevada RC Club” and look for this listing

  3. No matter where the homepage is listed in the search results, click on the link and let the page load.
  4. And since you are now at our homepage, you might as well browse around and see what is new, upload some RC photos, post items on the classifieds or post something on the forums.  All of these actions will help us on the search engines.
