Meeting Information

Impact of  the Corona Virus (COVID-19)on our monthly meetings

Fairfax High School will remain closed to community use until further notice. Since this is a very fluid situation, we have no estimate at present of when when our monthly meetings will resume. In addition to being posted on this site, everyone enrolled in our Google Group Forum will receive instant updates of the latest developments.

Until we can meet again in person your E-board has developed a procedure for virtual meetings using the online Zoom platform and a virtual contest using Google Forms. If you are enrolled in our Google Groups Forum you will receive notifications on dates, times and links to access the meetings & contest. Monthly club newsletters and other important information are also available through the forum.

(Virtual) Tips & Share Meetings

These meetings will be more informal get togethers, much like chatting with your fellow modelers before the start of a monthly meeting
