Zone Director Bio

I was born in St. Catharines in 1951. Have been here ever since and my family history dates back to the 1800s here. Back in the 50's when the grass was greener I started off with Cubs. That is just before Scouts. Then there was Scouts. I was a member of the 25th Queen Street Baptist Church Troup. During that time considering my fading memory I joined the St. Catharines Model Flying Club. (around 1959 or so, the predecessor of the Niagara Region Model Flying Club) Line control, galloping ghost, escapement, boats and rockets. In the early 60's playing with and building model airplanes was just wonderful; but the crashes were not. Upon losing my father in 1970, went on to work on becoming an Orthotist and Prosthetist. This was done at George Brown College and University of Toronto. During this time plastics was in my blood considering 8 hours a week of plastics in class and 4 hours a week helping in other classes at night in plastics as a volunteer. In 1974 incorporated my own business (in plastics composites for the wire and aircraft industry) which I am still hard at work with and then becoming an executive member of the Niagara Regional Van Association; again helping out with running of the association and volunteering more time through the organization with the Big Brothers, Remembrance Day Veterans and other volunteer duties. Then along came a chance to volunteer as a Scout Leader for the 46th Venture Handicap Scout Troup of St. Catharines. The very first one in existence and very, very rewarding endeavour at that! Moving ahead to become a member of the, "The Niagara Region Model Flying Club Inc." to this day. Being the secretary once, the Treasurer of the club for some years now and a very proud member of the MAAC association. I am also the Treasurer of the Southern Ontario Model Airshow (SOMA) for 6 years and its Chairman. The annual event raises money for children organizations. One hundred percent of all the money raised goes directly to the charity. Also at this time for the MAAC organization, I am the Zone Director for the Middle E zone, Chairman of the Public Relations and on the Executive of MAAC.
One of my personal goals for the Association, "MAAC" is to encourage new membership for the young and old. To encourage the "kids" to join the sport and prove to them and their respective parents that there is a lot more to MAAC then just flying RC airplanes. It takes skill for, wood working, electronics, mechanics, aerodynamics, hand-eye coordination, socializing, friendship and camaraderie to name a few. If you think this is it, please do not be fooled. These skills and benefits of being in the sport is critical for building our next generation of fine adults. If you think I am wrong, please join and prove me otherwise! Thanks for this opportunity to share my thoughts and bio. Join and get the full benefit! Sincerely, Roy R. R. Rymer 61172-L.
