Important Announcements

It's with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Leah Hale. Her big heart and love for life will be missed but never forgotten. Please join us and lift her husband David Hale and family up in prayer.

Hello Fellow Texas Center Members,

First of all, I want to thank the Denton IRPC for another great Texas Center Convention.

Moving right to business, it has been brought to my attention that our old Constitution and By-Laws have been inadvertently posted on our website. No one seems to know how and when this happened, and really that's not important. The mistake has been rectified and our amended Constitution and By-Laws are now correctly posted on txcenter.org.

In addition, the minutes of the July 2015 summer convention business meeting are also being posted. These minutes establish that that is the date when we approved the amended Constitution and By-Laws by a majority vote. I believe this should answer any questions the membership may have regarding what the current version of the Constitution and By-Laws is.

In ending, I would like to remind you that the Texas Center Winter Meeting will be held January 12-13, 2019, in New Braunfels, TX. Due to the hot weather we have been experiencing, the deadline to accept birds has been extended to September 2018. You don't want to miss this year's winter meeting - it's going to be a good one. Keep checking the website txcenter.org for more news concerning your Texas Center Winter Business Meeting and upcoming events.

Until next time Keep'Em Flying.

Yours in the Sport,
Roland Gutierrez


Since taking office, I have wanted to fly race where everyone in the Texas Center could compete against each other in a single race. I am excited to report that notwithstanding logistical issues, this race is going to take place this spring!

Waco, TX was determined to be the center of the Center. However, using Waco as a release point would make for too many short lofts. Many would only be flying 100 miles.

With Bud Williamsí help, it was decided to fly from Little Rock, AR. This will allow most everyone in the Texas Center to compete in the race. The race will be flown May 12, 2018.
