Hey OCMA club members. We think the rain and heat caused an issue with the binder (dirt glue) holding the surface together. The day the dirt glue was applied it rained off and on for two days. This may have diluted the binder so much that it no longer binds the material. Therefore surface in the pit area is very fragile. To protect the surface finish OCMA will be shut down Monday while waiting for the application of more dirt glue. Everyone can still fly Sunday 4/13/14 until sundown. It will probably be another two weeks until we reopen.
Overall the flying site is fantastic. We just need more binder applied. FYI
If you go to the Heli area you will see what we need on the airplane side
of OCMA. The surface is rock hard.
