Great photo, Ben! … CLICK image for full-size picture!

The first Saturday of April marked the club’s First Year of flying on our field. A large number of flyers, friends, family and supporters came out to help celebrate the event! … As promised, there was hot coffee, plenty of baked-goods, and plenty of flying and camaraderie on display.

I took a few pictures…

  1. Thank you to all pic contributors, participants, and Eric for putting the shots to print! Ben and Dave are planning an extension to our flightline so OPENING DAY, April 4, 2020 will surely be even more active. It was a great day, very little damage and lots of smiles. RC camaraderie at it’s best.

  2. Yes it was a very good turn out , I was more than glad to take pictures using Eric’s camera had lots of fun. Glad I was able to get Eric’s pic in for him.
