9. All pilots will announce take offs and landings. This must be done in a loud clear voice.
10. Take-offs shall be from the runway area. The area to the South of the safety fence, shall be considered the runway area. The take-off area on the east side of the field shall be from the West edge of the north-south runway Pilots taking off from a taxiway must ensure they are south and/or east of the safety fence before attempting to take off. Taxiing of aircraft shall be done as safely as possible. All aircraft shall be started either on an airplane stand or on the grass to the south of the airplane stands. All aircraft shall be carried to within one aircraft length of the safety fence, where taxiing to the runway can commence. After landing, an aircraft can taxi back to within one aircraft length of the safety fence, where the engine shall be shut down, or tuning can take place. Do not taxi under power on the north side of the safety fence.
The north-south runway use will not circumvent other safety rules. Flight patterns for the north-south runways are to be east of the runway, and flying should remain south of the railroad except for takeoffs and landings, which should be kept as far south as practical. The objective is to avoid flying near the houses north of the field. Pilots flying from the north-south runway are responsible for clearly advising their intentions to pilots flying from the east-west runway.
11. Pilots transmitting on 72MHZ, 27MHZ, or HAM frequencies must take care to not use a frequency that another aircraft is on. Use of the club provided frequency assignment board is mandatory. Your club or AMA card must be used to attach to the clothing pin on the board that corresponds with the frequency you are using. DO NOT TURN TRANSMITTER ON WITHOUT FREQUENCY PIN.

13. All new and rebuilt aircraft must be announced before their first flight to alert everyone to be aware that an untested aircraft will be flying.
14. Electric powered aircraft using lithium polymer batteries should be installed to the aircraft in a manner that will keep the battery attached to the aircraft in the event of a crash. A two-stage attachment system is encouraged, consisting of a surface mounting system, like Velcro, and a strapping system, like removable nylon ties or Velcro straps to further secure the battery. When a battery is lost, the pilot shall notify other pilots who shall respond immediately forming a search effort until found. Remember we are guests of the family that farms this land, LOST LIPO BATTERIES CAN NOT BE LEFT IN THE OWNERS FIELD. All pilots will be familiar with club provided fire suppression equipment stored in the club shed and are encouraged to bring their own fire extinguishers and be prepared to act to put out a fire and call the proper authority's in the case of fire.
15. Helicopters are encouraged to use the north-south runway for takeoffs and landings. During no or low-wind conditions, helicopters and micro planes have the right of way use of the north-south runway area designated for them.
